Market Analysis

Outlook Q3 2019: Powertrain Forecast

LMC examines the expansion of electrification in the North American light vehicle market, from 48V hybrids through battery-electric vehicles as automakers spend billions of dollars to develop and bring new products into the market. Key influencing factors, including legislation and consumer acceptance, are studied. A comparison of strategy, requirements and a resulting sales outlook is shown between Canada, Mexico and the US. Further, we discuss how this transition affects the powertrains installed in regional vehicle production, investigating the evolution of internal-combustion powertrains to meet the challenges of increasingly strict government regulations and their future in the developing electrified environment. Presented by Kevin Riddell, Senior Manager, Americas, Powertrain, LMC Automotive.
