Market Overview

Electrified Transmissions Set to Gain Prominence in the Luxury Vehicle Segment  

Electrified transmissions will experience increased penetration in both European and North American regions owing to the increased focus on hybrid vehicles and their positive impact on emissions and fuel economy. However, end-user preference for automatic transmissions (AT) in North America and for manual transmissions (MT) in Europe will dictate the penetration of the type of transmission technology with integrated electric motors.

“The demand for lower emissions and increased fuel economy has sharpened the focus on hybrid vehicles,” notes the analyst of this research. “While the integrated technology solutions are driven by the hybrid market itself, the technologies being quick and simple solutions, offer OEMs an easier way to hybridize the vehicles without making too many modifications to the engine, chassis, and vehicle as a whole.” In North America, the electrification of ATs will suit the transmission manufacturer as there is no necessity to modify manufacturing setups of ATs, while replacing the torque converter with an electric motor offers improved results. Driving patterns and dynamics particular to Europe have led to the emergence of both transmission electrification and EDAS systems—which will vie for the top spot in Europe. 

Ease of Adoption and Cost to Play a Major Role in Determining OEM Strategies

The future of motor integrated transmissions-based technologies is likely to be strongly influenced primarily by legislations promoting lower emissions and strategies by OEMs to meet such legislated targets. However, ease of adoption and cost of the technology will be factors that will significantly affect OEM strategies, thus having a direct impact on the market success of motor integrated transmission technologies.  

The electrified axle technology, which has been gaining popularity as a retro-fit solution and is also used by Peugeot in its HYbrid4 powertrain, is a major competitor to electrified transmissions in Europe. With its simple architecture, independence from the ICE, and ease of adoption to any vehicle platform, this technology offers a stern challenge to the motor integrated transmission. However, its lower potential for fuel reduction due to its non-linkage to the ICE could limit its challenge to the motor integrated transmission. “It is clear that the electric and hybrid vehicle transmission market is in a nascent stage and the suppliers are yet to fix a standard, with each of them offering different solutions,” concludes the analyst. “However, with the industry growing rapidly, technological developments and new products will follow, affecting the market landscape.”
