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
