Light duty vehicles with 3.5 liter engines are estimated to be the largest market in North America
Engine capacity helps in determining engine output such as power, torque, and mileage.The 3.5-liter engine segment, which is used in SUVs, sports cars and high end luxury cars, holds the largest market share mainly due to preference for powerful vehicles in the region.
The 1.5 to 1.8 liter engine segment gives moderate mileage in petrol vehicles and is generally used in mid-size cars and small wagons.
Automatic transmission is projected to hold the largest market share in the North American light duty vehicle market
The North American market is inclined towards automatic transmission owing to customer’s preference for automatic transmission systems and stringent emission norms. As a manual transmission’s fuel efficiency depends on driver proficiency, the automatic transmission’s performance results in a better fuel efficiency and lower emissions.
Stringent fuel efficiency norms, namely the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards, have increased the demand for fuel efficient transmission systems like CVT.
