Future Powertrains Industry Report Released
April 25, 2016—Research and Markets released a detailed report covering the future of powertrains, between 2016 and 2036, including both technology and market development.
The report is almost entirely based on the very latest information gathered and interpreted in 2016. Analysts traveled worldwide in 2015 and 2016 to report the latest research, attend conferences and gather expert opinions, and to analyze how the markets and technologies will move over the coming 15 years.
"Pure electric vehicles are typically seen as the end game in contactlessly charged form but, beyond that, we show the many energy independent forms appearing, some already on sale," the research firm claims. "We show how shaped components can evolve further into structural electronics and variants of the supercapacitor can compete with or enhance batteries. We benchmark what is happening in the air and on water but the focus is land vehicles on and off-road. The future is very different from that commonly portrayed and much more exciting."
