Greater use of vehicle electrification is essential for OEMs to meet the far more stringent global CO2 emission standards coming early in the next decade, and the technologies related to batteries, power control, and e-motors are progressing steadily. New vehicle electrical architectures, including 48-V hybrid systems and lower-cost EV drives, are poised to play a major role. In this 60-minute Webinar, experts discuss what’s over the technology horizon and what challenges engineers face as the plug-in future approaches. 

An audience Q&A follows the speaker presentations.
