The global auto business is already exceptionally competitive, resulting in lower growth and returns on capital compared to other industries.
Projecting the current regulations forward sets the industry on a path of doubling fuel economy performance by 2040, with a vast majority of that reduction occurring in the United States, Europe and China.
The strategies used to meet regulatory targets will differ by region and OEM. At the same time, vehicle platforms are going global, relying on regional variation to meet competitive needs.
And OEMs are not alone; profit pressure pushes greater responsibility for subsystems down into the supply chain.
