In the present year, financial crisis has come to an end. This duration can be considered as a good time for looking at the future and starting to think about certain other issues as well. The coming fifteen years can be considered as being a rough time for the automobile industries across the globe that is the duration of two or three life cycles. It is important to known what phase will approach in the automobile industry that will result in significant changes (Shamus, 2009). It is important to know what factors will affect negatively and positively the winners by 2025. These can include political factors, but significantly will involve technological factors and environmental factors as well.
This essay will be discussing the design of engine that will take United States of America to 2025.
Engine Design for 2025
In the United States of America, new rules have been set for doubling the average economy of fuel amongst new cars and trucks by the year 2025. In context with these standards, it can be stated that there must be an engine design having the average economy of fuel at 54.5 miles for every gallon for the model year of 2025 (Tokieda, 2004). This will result in increasing the pressure over organizations in automobile industry for taking a step ahead in developing the electrified vehicle. This will also need sharp improvement in mileage of the models in mass market by techniques such as more sustainable and efficient engines along with lighter bodies of cars.
Hence, it is important to have an engine design that will contribute in saving fuel and would easily be exceeding the estimated cost of 2000 to 3000 dollars. This will cost more for customers buying highly efficient vehicles (Frizelle, 2010). However, if improved technology is involved in the engine design, then the amount of price will end up going up.
