Evolution in vehicle emissions regulations would result in difficulties to meet the standards with the conventional vehicle technology. However, a shift to the fully hybrid and pure electric powertrains involves considerable cost in building different infrastructural platforms. Thereby, an intermediate technology like that of mild-hybrid is a very effective development where the vehicle has the capacity to incrementally improve fuel efficiency from the traditional powertrains. A significant extent of braking energy can be regenerated in this system than the micro-hybrid ones. The alternator is replaced with a reversible 48 V electric machine with a large battery. Mild hybrids make use of stop-start and regenerative braking but they tend not to return as high of EPA-rated mpg compared to full hybrids or that of an electric vehicle.
The electric machine provides the much required torque boost and assist in providing considerable downsizing of the internal combustion engine. The improvements and developments permit the 48V mild hybrid to have increased acceleration, noiseless start stop, and smooth take-off that would significantly improve driver experiences almost pilfering the advantages of hybrids, at less than half the cost and structure. Some common example of these vehicles would be General Motors eAssist and Honda’s Integrated Motor Assist.
The Mercedes mild hybrid system is the mainstream hybrid to use a lithium ion battery. In 2010, GM launched a second-generation version of its mild hybrid. The new version increased the motor power from 5 to 15 kW and the earlier nickel metal hydride battery was replaced by a higher capacity, lighter lithium ion unit.
The main challenge faced by the OEMs as of now is to put forward a portfolio of electrified vehicles, which not only satisfy the regulatory requirements, but are also acceptable to the customer at a cost effective bargain. Compared with 200V to 600V full hybrid and pure electric vehicles, the low voltage mild-hybrid approach eliminates the need for high cost safety features and large battery packs. In addition, the universal application of the mild-hybrid technology to more than 100 million gasoline and diesel engine vehicles per annum is forecasted to be produced during the forecast period, would reduce annual CO2 emissions by more than 100 million tonnes globally per annum.
