Powertrain Strategies of the Japanese & South Korean OEMs
SupplierBusiness, October 2012, Pages: 107
Asia's leading automakers and powertrain suppliers are making steady advances into the engine and transmission fields both in terms of technologies and global presence.
In the engine field, automakers will expand usage of direct injection, two-stage turbocharging and hybrid technologies, while in transmissions they will continue their shift away from 4- and 5-speed automatics to 6-speed and higher and, in urban markets, to CVTs.
IHS Automotive, a leading industry forecaster, predicts that clean diesels and full hybrids will account for 20.8% and 3.4% of global light vehicle demand in 2017. That comes to a combined 24.5 million cars and trucks based on IHS's 101 million-unit demand forecast in major markets.
