More than 10 million Honeywell turbochargers have been sold in China since the beginning of TS operations in China more than 20 years ago. Key launches in the past year include: the Buick Encore, Chevrolet Trax, Baojun 560/ 730, and the Chery TIGGO7. According to Honeywell's most recent Turbo Forecast, China will remain the highest growth market for turbocharged light vehicles. After a very strong fourth quarter in 2016, Honeywell has updated its forecast for China calling for a 20-point increase in turbo penetration of total sales. This means the annual sales of turbocharged light vehicles in China will increase from 10.6 million in 2016 to more than 16 million in 2021. On display in Shanghai will be Honeywell's Gasoline VNT Turbocharger, which features a variable geometry turbine stage rather than a typical wastegate valve to help achieve better fuel economy. Designed to work in tandem with a combustion phasing technology known as the Miller cycle, this turbo takes on more work and allows greater thermal efficiency in the engine. This results in improved fuel economy and reduced CO2 emissions at nearly all engine speeds. Honeywell has applied the performance-enhancing VNT technology to nearly 70 million turbos used with diesel engines during the past three decades. It is an industry first to apply VNT technology for the higher-temperature gasoline engine environment – suitable for high-production volume passenger vehicles – without resorting to expensive exotic materials. Honeywell Transportation Systems developed its latest VNT turbocharger for the Volkswagen Group's 1.5L gasoline engine to be used in various VW and Audi models. In its most recent benchmarking study, industry analyst FEV Group GmbH determined that the carbon dioxide emissions (108g/km) for a 1,250 kg vehicle with Honeywell's technology represents best-in-class performance for the industry in 2017. Honeywell is bringing a look into the future to its display, with three examples of electric boosting products that can help provide additional benefits for automakers to use in improving performance and meeting regulatory targets. These include: Honeywell expects these solutions will continue to grow in demand as electric and hybrid vehicles are expected to grow globally from a total of 3 million vehicles sold in 2016 to a total of 16 million sold annually by 2021. Within the electrified category, mild hybrids are expected to account for 46 percent of the mix, full hybrids will account for 40 percent; and pure electric vehicles will be most of the remaining 14 percent. Honeywell estimates 70 percent of all mild hybrid vehicles will have a turbo or multiple turbo systems (mechanical and electric). Honeywell will also offer a demo of three software initiatives aimed at diagnostics and prognostics of vehicle condition, automotive cyber security and calibration of vehicle powertrains. In addition to Honeywell's powertrain related technologies, Honeywell will showcase a new automotive refrigerant that achieves a 99.9 percent greenhouse gas emission reduction compared with previous generation refrigerants with the same or better cooling performance. Honeywell will also present a series of Reddot Award winning products including an indoor air purifier and indoor air quality meter. Honeywell is working with automakers on extending these air quality and environmentally friendly technologies to future vehicle cabin designs. "We pay great attention to the Chinese market and have formulated a long-term strategic plan in China," said Honeywell China President Stephen Shang. "Honeywell's goal is to be the best operating global company in China with best products, best quality, best value and fastest speed for our customers. Our turbocharging business is one of the best examples of how Honeywell is applying global innovations and experience to create a tailored local technology solution with fully local end-to-end capacity." "Our unique Honeywell automotive, aerospace and automation expertise allows us to innovate, bringing differentiated turbo technologies for conventional powertrains as well as electric boosting and Automotive Software solutions," said Charles Jin, Honeywell Transportation Systems Vice President and General Manager of High Growth Regions, China and India. "Moreover, we'll bring to the automotive world, innovative technologies that help make vehicles safer, more connected, more energy efficient and environmentally friendly." Honeywell Transportation Systems will be displaying its automotive solutions and conducting demos, tours and contests at Hall 4.2 booth #4B H001 during Auto Shanghai. Honeywell (www.honeywell.com) is a Fortune 100 software-industrial company that delivers industry specific solutions that include aerospace and automotive products and services; control technologies for buildings, homes, and industry; and performance materials globally. Our technologies help everything from aircraft, cars, homes and buildings, manufacturing plants, supply chains, and workers become more connected to make our world smarter, safer, and more sustainable. For more news and information on Honeywell, please visit www.honeywell.com/newsroom.

Dublin, May 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Range Extenders for Electric Vehicles Land, Water & Air 2017-2027" report to their offering. Over nine million hybrid cars will be made in 2027, each with a range extender, the additional power source that distinguishes them from pure electric cars. Add to that significant money spent on the same devices in buses, military vehicles, boats and so on and a major new market emerges. This unique report is about range extenders for all these purposes - their evolving technology and market size. Whereas today's range extenders usually consist of little more than off the shelf internal combustion engines, these are rapidly being replaced by second generation range extenders consisting of piston engines designed from scratch for fairly constant load in series hybrids. There are some wild cards like Wankel engines and rotary combustion engines or free piston engines both with integral electricity generation. However, a more radical departure is the third generation micro turbines and fuel cells that work at constant load. The report compares all these. It forecasts the lower power needed over the years given assistance from fast charging and energy harvesting innovations ahead. Every aspect of the new range extenders is covered. This report profiles key developers, manufactures and integrators of range extenders for land, water and airborne electric vehicles. It gives ten year forecasts of the different types of electric vehicle and of range extenders by number, unit value and market value. Market drivers and the changing requirements for power output are analysed. Will shaftless range extenders with no separate electricity generator take over and when will that be? What fuels will be used and when? What are the pros and cons of each option and who are the leaders? It is all here. Key Topics Covered: 1. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS 1.1.
