The long-used 12V automobile electrical system is going to be no more used. Infact 48V technology would allow the implementation of technologies which are not practical in 12V systems, (e.g. micro-hybrid and micro-hybrid) that would reduce the fuel consumption an CO2 emissions.

While eVehicles and hybrid technology switched development into the fast lane, the development of so-called “micro hybrid” and “mild hybrid systems” based on 48V power also shifted into high gear. As a result, the long-used 12V automobile electrical system is reaching the end of the road.
