News | Bosch launches its new Powertrain Solutions division

Starting in 2018, Bosch will be pooling its e-mobility, gasoline systems, and diesel systems activities in a single division

E-mobility is considered to be the future of the automotive industry. By 2025, there will be an estimated 20 million vehicles with hybrid and electric drives on the world’s roads. In order to further expand this field of business, Bosch is now launching a new division. From 2018 onward, the Powertrain Solutions division will be the home of all drivetrain-related technologies at Bosch. In addition to the new e-mobility unit, Bosch Gasoline Systems and Bosch Diesel Systems will be integrated into the new division.

 

 

A look at the European Union’s CO2 targets shows that powertrain electrification is needed to reduce the average emissions of new vehicles to 95 g/km. Bosch supports this plan and invests some 400 million euros each year to contribute to an e-mobility breakthrough. At the same time, the company has kept up its efforts to further develop the internal combustion engine. In fact, Bosch aims to make current gasoline and diesel engines up to 20 percent more efficient.

In strategic terms, Powertrain Solutions has three core segments: internal combustion engines, hybrid drive systems, and electric vehicles. “Whether fuel or electricity, Bosch will also be bringing energy to drive systems in the future,” says Dr. Rolf Bulander, president of the Mobility Solutions business sector at Robert Bosch GmbH. “Since it isn’t clear today which drive system or which combination of drive types will prevail and when, we have taken a two-pronged approach and are further expanding our expertise both with regard to e-mobility and the internal combustion engine.”
