6/21/2016 SAE Automotive Engineering magazine: Powering up the new stop-start systems

As stop-start systems gain acceptance in North America, a range of technologies including lithium ion batteries, ultracapacitors, and 48-V "mild hybrid" systems are under consideration to handle aggressive start cycles, typically more than 20 per day, that are required of these systems. Stop-start is aimed at reducing vehicle fuel consumption and emissions by reducing engine idling.

6/20/2016 Thinking Beyond Stop-Start

Hybrid vehicles are old hat, and nearly always relegated to a niche market – currently about 3 percent of U.S. car sales. Electric vehicles are sexy, but it’ll be a long wait until they’re an economically sound choice for the average Joe. As the country’s corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standards rise, what are car manufacturers to do?
