Micro Hybrids Could Be Big Growth Segment Soon

HybridCars - May 10, 2013

For automak­ers focus­ing on hit­ting 54.5 mpg vehi­cles by 2025 and for deal­ers mar­ket­ing fuel effi­cient green cars, micro hybridiza­tion could be impor­tant. They’re using lithi­um-ion bat­ter­ies, many of them 48 volt, to sup­ple­ment inter­nal com­bus­tion engines as hybrids tend to do – though this hybrid sys­tem will take on addi­tion­al duties such as off­set­ting demands from the on board 12-volt bat­tery through anoth­er motor/generator.
