SEG Automotive unveils market insights and future product strategy
Yamaha Motor to launch BS VI compatible 2-wheelers from Nov 2019
Are self-driving vehicles the answer to future such lockdowns?
In order to approach its move towards electrification, SEG Automotive at IAA 2019 trade fair will provide solutions on decreasing CO2 emissions in a comprehensive update to its Whitepaper titled— ‘The Transformation of the Powertrain’. It will also introduce a range of new products to support the transition with efficient combustion engines, 48V hybrids and electrification.
The best example is the new EM 1.25 e-machine. It offers great fuel efficiency increases and provides sufficient power for comprehensive e-driving functionality, enabling 48V full-hybrids or even compact 48V electric cars.
SEG Automotive’s 48V hybridisation 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 per cent market share) and Europe (35 per cent market share) it will be roughly every third vehicle. SEG Automotive has been a pioneer for this technology; its Boost Recuperation Machine (BRM) is the only 48V machine recognized as an eco-innovation by the EU and granting up to 1.8g / km of additional CO2 credits. It replaces the conventional generator in its position on the belt to turn combustion engines into mild hybrids, significantly reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The BRM also serves as the sole engine for light electric vehicles like the Schwalbe E-Scooter.
The new EM 1.25 product range offers greater savings and with 25 kw enables comprehensive 48V e-driving functionality – from mild-hybrids to compact 48V electric cars.
The new EM 1.25 takes the concept of 48V to a new level. The highly efficient 25 kW e-machine can be integrated flexibly throughout the powertrain - from the gearbox (P2, P3) to the rear-axle (P4), depending on the architecture preferred by the specific customer. Even compared to cars equipped with start/stop, it provides additional fuel consumption and CO2 emission savings of up to 19 per cent under real life conditions.
Anil Kumar M R, Managing Director, SEG Automotive India, “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, from mild hybrid to small EVs, for example for urban applications. 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.”
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 fact, even in the mid-term electric cars can be a net negative for the climate in major markets like India, China or the US, as SEG Automotive’s Whitepaper “The Transformation of the Powertrain” showed through a comprehensive analysis of independent sources.
“Even in 2025, at least 85 per cent of new passenger cars will still be equipped with a diesel or gasoline engine. For conventional combustion engines, start/stop and high-efficiency generators can bring down fuel consumption and emissions by around 10 per cent at a very low cost,” explained Kumar MR.
SEG Automotive will showcase two of these solutions at IAA 2019: the SC70 is a compact, powerful start/stop starter motor (up to 1.7 kW) for small to mid-sized cars and can be customized to the needs of the specific application with additional features like load dampening and noise reduction. The PL7Q generator introduces recuperation of braking energy to 12V combustion engines.
