The Effect of Vehicle Electrification on Transmissions and the Transmission Market

The Effect of Vehicle Electrification on Transmissions and the Transmission Market

It is clear that the electrification of on-highway vehicles is now very much a reality. But what are the implications for transmissions, and the transmission market, as governments, OEMs, suppliers and customers all strive for lower CO2 emissions/fuel costs?


From a technical perspective, there is a broad range of possible configurations for OEMs and suppliers to consider, when thinking about vehicle electrification. Whilst we cannot evaluate all of these possibilities in such a short article, what we can do is look at some of the broader market trends which are emerging, during this ‘embryonic’ period.
