Need for Diversification in Powertrain Technology

  • Roland Schedel
Engine Technology Future Powertrain

It is most probable that petroleum will not be replaced by a single fuel but by several candidates. Fuel is likely to diversify and, as a consequence, there will also be a diversification in engine and powertrain technology. The automotive industry cannot focus on one technology alone.
