Restraints for the Global Electric Powertrain Market – 


Higher Costs of Electrical Components and Technological Challenges related to Electric Powertrains are major restraints

Although buying an electric vehicle is more expensive than buying a combustion engine vehicle, overall ownership costs for electric vehicles are lower than those for conventional vehicles. According to a report by the Natural Resources Defense Council, the average cost of an electric passenger car in the US in June 2020 would be USD 19,000, which is more expensive than a car that runs on gasoline. When originally purchased, the costs of these two vehicles are so dissimilar that it is difficult for consumers who are concerned with costs to select an electric vehicle. Consumers do not want to pay the extra cost for electric automobiles, even though the total cost of ownership could be low because the cars are used a lot.


Due to the higher cost of electric powertrains compared to ICE powertrains, which can range from USD 5,000 to USD 13,000 more depending on the required range and battery size, OEMs throughout the world find it challenging to replace an ICE powertrain with an electric powertrain in passenger vehicles. As more individuals become aware of and comprehend the general advantages and cheap ownership costs of an electric vehicle, this situation is likely to alter in the upcoming years (EV). The cost differential between these cars is anticipated to vanish in the coming years as battery technology advances and more vehicles are produced.


The main factors impeding the expansion of the market for electric powertrains are technological ones, such as low energy and power density, range anxiety among consumers, and battery charging issues. The quantity of energy stored in the battery determines the range of an electric vehicle. How quickly the energy in the battery is depleted determines how quickly the vehicle drives. Because they must create vehicles with greater speed and range, manufacturers are faced with a difficult challenge.


Range anxiety is a result of the fact that early electric cars' batteries were much smaller and could only travel 70 miles on a single charge. Customers worry that the backup battery might die in the middle of a trip as a result, which could be problematic given that most nations lack reliable charging infrastructure. But since they were first produced, electric cars have advanced significantly. Recent years have seen significant advancements in lithium-ion batteries, which can now power a light-duty EV for about 300 miles on a single charge.


Opportunities in the Global Electric Powertrain Market –
