Massive Improvements Make 48V the Future Hybrid
IDTechEx predicts 48V hybrid will peak at a huge 13 million cars made in 2027, 10-15% of the car market. This is something that those with legacy assets in internal combustion ignore at their peril. There is more, as revealed in the new IDTechEx report "48V Mild Hybrid and 48V Full Hybrid Vehicles 2020-2030".
Here Come 48V Full Hybrid Electric Vehicles
The new Hyundai Tucson switches off the engine when coasting or braking at under 30kph. This is a bridge to the 48V full hybrids that IDTechEx foresaw some time ago.

IDTechEx's Dr Peter Harrop looks at five types of EV now.
Lithium-ion battery prices may rise
EVs are and will remain by far the largest market for LIB. LIB supply commitments increase all the time with China the most ambitious. Thailand is getting into LIB battery making in a big way and may offer 50-100 GWh in 2030, helping to close the gap in supply vs demand. The Europeans may do the same eventually. However, just one successful EV car model can need 100GWh/year.
