One-Pedal Driving – Enjoy the Drive
Mark Selogie, Global Electrification Controls Director, General Motors
• One-Pedal Operation
• Benefits of One-Pedal Driving
• How On-Pedal Driving Works
The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV offers drivers a customizable One-Pedal Driving experience. One-Pedal Driving combines the highest available level of coast regeneration with intelligent speed trajectory control to bring the vehicle to a complete stop. Drivability is objectively superior to the conventional two-pedal method, and provides maximum allowable regeneration. Continue reading

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. Let us start by looking at the implications for the different types of electrified vehicle: Continue reading
