Worldwide the automotive industry is challenged to make dramatic improvements in vehicle fuel economy, some already legislated and in some cases by new regulations. In Europe there are CO2 emissions penalties prorated by the degree at which vehicles miss mandated CO2 levels. In the U.S., vehicle fuel economy targets first set by the U.S. Congress in 2007 for 20% fuel economy improvement by 2020 are now being accelerated by the Obama administration to an overall passenger car plus light truck mandate of 35.5mpg by 2016. Taking effect in 2012 the new rules set more aggressive fuel economy measures that will require making significant gains in engine and driveline efficiency, better performance cabin climate control and the introduction of electric hybridization. This 2nd edition of Propulsion Systems for Hybrid Vehicles addresses the electrification innovations that will be required ranging from low end brake energy recuperators, idle-stop systems, mild hybrids on to strong hybrids of the power split architecture in both single mode and two mode and introducing new topics in plug-in hybrid and battery electrics.The Institution of Engineering and Technology is one of the world's leading professional societies for the engineering and technology community.
