Smart solutions to reduce emissions across powertrain technologies

In the move towards electrification, the automotive industry is facing the greatest transformation in its history. At IAA 2019, SEG Automotive is approaching this complex issue from two sides: by providing detailed answers for how to decrease CO2 emissions in a comprehensive update to its Whitepaper "The Transformation of the Powertrain" and by introducing a range of new products which support the transition towards more efficient combustion engines, 48V hybrids and electrification.

SEG Automotive unveils new products for 48V hybridization

On a global scale, no single powertrain solution is universally the best for all applications – both in terms of emissions and available infrastructure. However, 48V hybridization has emerged as a cost-effective, easy-to-integrate solution to make an immediate impact to reach climate goals and meet CO2 legislation targets. By 2025, one in five new cars globally will come equipped with 48V technology; in China (31% market share) and Europe (35% market share) it will be roughly every third vehicle.

SEG Automotive has been a pioneer for this technology. At IAA 2019, the global supplier introduces the next generation of 48V products, which anticipate the growing demands of the automotive industry: a substantial upgrade of the BRM and the new EM 1.25 product range, which offers even greater savings and with 25 kW enables comprehensive 48V e-driving functionality – from mild hybrids to compact 48V electric cars.

"48V powered vehicles will be a key contributor to drastically reducing global CO2 emissions from cars. With our EM 1.25 we have an efficient solution for a wide range of use cases," explains Dr. Peter Sokol, COO of SEG Automotive. "Driven by our passion for innovation we will continue along this path. The EM 1.25 constitutes the basis for our continued research of and investment in high voltage solutions."


Whitepaper "The transformation of the powertrain": A balanced view of technologies

EVs promise a future of driving without emissions. However, their impact is currently limited by reluctant consumers, necessary breakthroughs in battery technology and a global energy mix, which even in 2040 will still be dominated by fossil fuels.

In its whitepaper "The transformation of the powertrain", SEG Automotive provides comprehensive answers to the most pressing questions:

  • How quickly will e-mobility establish itself – and which factors influence its growth?
  • How environmentally friendly are electric cars today compared to conventional engines?
  • How does the situation look like from a consumer point of view, especially in regards to costs and usability?
  • What short-term solutions are available to significantly reduce CO2 emissions even before the breakthrough of e-mobility?
