In 2017, several OEMs made announcements about the future of their powertrains – along the lines of electrification, other powertrain alternatives and the future of diesel. These approaches are driven by the strengthening emission control and fuel economy regulations and advanced testing cycles. OEMs have responded to these measures through different moves, with very high to very minimum level of powertrain electrification planned. Companies also continue to develop advanced IC engine concepts that reduce their dependence on electrification of powertrains. This report is a compilation of all interesting trends in powertrains from the last year, understanding how the powertrain will transform in the short, med
