Powertrain Regional Challenges and Solutions 2008-21-0012

Against the backdrop of broadening global economic development and an accelerating demographic shift from rural to urban communities, the automotive industry delivers a highly localized consumer product with broad-ranging technical, commercial, social and political impact. Diverse governmental regulations require a flexible approach to vehicle system design and integration. Advanced propulsion technologies are a key enabler to delivering exciting, safe, valuable vehicles to consumers while meeting these diverse governmental regulations.
In this paper, we will introduce and discuss the three primary drivers of advanced automotive propulsion systems:
  • Fuel Economy,
  • Energy Diversity, and
  • Emissions Reduction.
Within this framework we will discuss regional regulatory requirements and how these three issues impact the choices made by global automotive OEMs.
Finally, we will discuss global automotive OEM options for future propulsion systems and their impact on Fuel Economy, Energy Diversity and Emissions Reduction.
