The climate changes predicted at a global level, and already happening in some parts of the world, call for a serious commitment to reducing the emissions produced by human activities. The transport industry contributes significantly to the production of gases that generate the so-called “greenhouse effect”.
Among the numerous structural interventions aimed at reducing emissions in the short term, the electrification of means of transport is becoming increasingly important.
For example, the energy efficiency and CO2 reduction targets set for 2025 in Europe for passenger cars already require the use of a “hybrid” traction system (combustion engine + electric motor). And from 2035 vehicles equipped with internal combustion engines will be banned.
For the automotive industry, therefore, scenarios of profound change are expected. The first major evolution will be gradually replacing internal combustion engines with electric motors.
UTIL has embraced this wind of change and has developed innovative solutions to apply its deep expertise in fine-blanking technology to produce components adopted by manufacturers of systems for hybrid and electric vehicles.
The EV Report spoke with Ugo Ansaldi, Global Program Manager at UTIL, to get his view about future trends for the automotive sector and the steps his company is taking to play a primary role in the transition of powertrain systems from fossil fuels to more sustainable sources.
