The "Powertrain to 2030: Trends and Risks" report has been added to's offering.

The report looks at technical trends and developments in each of these areas, and projects how those they might develop through to 2025 and 2030.

Technical trends and developments in the five major powertrain areas. Analysis, discussion of recent events and developments and assessment of their likely impact.

Attention has recently been focused on self-driving vehicles and full electrification as major disruptors for the auto sector in the next decade.
But for the next several years the industry is likely to be dominated by radical changes occurring WITHIN the internal combustion (IC)-engined automotive model, as new engine management and optimization technologies and partial electrification address changes demanded by regulators and markets, such as achieving carbon emission reductions and fuel economy gains despite the sidelining of diesels.

Powertrain to 2030: Trends and Risks examines the impact of these developments on the five major elements of the future powertrain

  • IC engines
  • Transmissions
  • Control Systems
  • Batteries
  • Electric Motors

The report takes a unique approach to assessing the central track of the industry's technological roadmap - and then discusses the threats and challenges to that projection as way of analyzing the risks and opportunities that will dominate the next decade.

In other words it establishes the consensus view, and then challenges it by identifying key uncertainties and potential disruptors.

Each chapter summarizes current developments for each of the technology areas, and then pulls them together into plausible, alternate scenarios to the central outlook to help planners bookend the best and worst cases.

The report builds on a series of in-depth studies of different powertrain technologies, as well as surveys of experts.
