The Powertrain Transition | New VDMA-FVA-FVV study report published

VDMA, FVA and FVV publish new study on the electrification of the automotive powertrain and its impact on the mechanical engineering and supply industries - For the first time passenger cars, commercial vehicles and mobile machinery are focused with regard to future added value - Added value growth of automotive powertrains for passenger cars at 1.7 percent annually - New "Zero Emission Vehicle Index": By 2024 boundary conditions for the European passenger car market are expected in which an electric vehicle will be competitive

The transformation of the transport and mobility sector has set in motion complex structural changes, hybridisation and electrification are gaining momentum. What does this mean in detail? The new VDMA study report "The Powertrain Transition", created by FEV Consulting GmbH, gives unexpected answers. It looks at the development of propulsion concepts, their effects on production technologies for passenger cars, commercial vehicles and mobile machinery in the key markets of Europe, China and the USA by 2030 and establishes a new monitoring System "Zero Emission Vehicle Index".

"The Powertrain Transition" at the FVV 2018 Spring Conference:
The results of the study will be presented at the FVV Spring Meeting in Bad Neuenahr on 22/03/2018.

How to obtain the new study report "The Powertrain Transition":
