The study throws light on various light-weighting measures on powertrains and their importance and level of maturity in taking original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) closer to CO2 targets. The study has been broken down into 3 clusters—engine, transmissions, and exhaust after-treatment. Newer materials and the pace of substitution of conventional materials have been discussed. Supplementary technological advances required in manufacturing and joining process and economies of scales to be achieved are also detailed. The study delves into key participants, such as BMW and VW, for a deeper insight into their light-weighting strategies through 2 case studies. The base year is 2015 and forecasts have been provided till 2022.
