In Search Of The Optimal Future Powertrain


Possible means of meeting future CO2 requirements include the application of various measures to optimise the internal combustion engine and transmission or the electrification of the powertrain. However, the best results cannot generally be achieved by combining the maximum potential benefits that each of these three areas have to offer. Not only would this be too costly, the technologies involved often address the same physical levers for reducing fuel consumption. Ultimately, it means that there is no such thing as the optimum powertrain but only application-specific solutions. Bosch has examined which combinations of systems are expected to be most predominant in 2020.
