About this event

Automobiles are a major part of our daily life and one of the most personal items that we depend on for our livelihood. Powertrain development has experienced a series of gradual evolutionary changes based on demands such as legislation, customer requirements and costs. 

Currently, the common impression is that future cars will be electrified, connected, autonomous and shared. Electrification of the powertrain is one of the major automotive developments in the last two decades that results in the reduction of vehicle emissions which is one of the most prevalent environmental problems.

The electrification of powertrain is a gradual move from conventional combustion engines to hybrid and full electric vehicles that is transforming the propulsion technology in the automotive industry. The UK is a major stakeholder in this change and the British automotive industry is a leading contributor in this arena.

This talk looks at the way powertrain is developing within the overall vehicle design and considers the past and future. It specifically considers the virtual prototyping and testing and the role that Loughborough’s propulsion group is playing in the design and control of future powertrains.
