Hybrid Car Review

Tuesday, September 11, 2007

Bosch, one of the top auto parts supplier, is predicting hybrid car production will be 4 percent in North America and 9 percent in Japan by 2015. Current figures (by Bosch) set production levels at less than 1 percent in the US and 4 percent in Japan.

Bosch is predicting less penetration by hybrids in Europe, where diesels are the norm. Diesel hybrid engines are a hard sell, since that doubles the extra cost to build compared to engines that incorporate only one or the other.
