Future mobility is about much more than whether or not to choose a battery electric vehicle; a big picture perspective is essential for generating consumer enthusiasm and mastering the challenges facing the automotive industry. This free Automotive World webinar deals with aspects of the engine and the powertrain—especially the hybrid powertrain—in the vehicle context.

To reduce gaseous, PN and CO2 emissions in a sustainable, affordable and attractive way for customers requires close coordination between engine, transmission, hybridization and vehicle, not only during layout and development, but also in real-world applications. The key question is: “Which combination of component technologies leads to which emissions, which CO2 reduction at which cost, and how will the customer benefit?”

In this webinar, Paul Kapus, Manager Gasoline Engine Development and Concept Cars, Executive Engineer at AVL List GmbH opens with current challenges regarding emissions and fuel consumption, and then shows the technology bricks for further improvement of combustion engine and hybrid powertrain technology.

Paul also addresses the path to “zero impact emission” and implications for EU7; total fuel consumption, taking into account vehicle, engine and powertrain measures in terms of CO2 benefit and cost; and he provides a cost comparison of BEV, HEV, PHEV and FCEV.
