The 2019 HILDA (Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia) survey found that the average Australian

The 2019 HILDA (Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia) survey found that the average Australian was spending around 4.5 hours per week commuting to and from work: 27 minutes each way, Monday to Friday. If that sounds like you, and you drive to and from work each day, then this 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV might just be the perfect electric vehicle for you. Why? Because half an hour behind the wheel means you’re probably travelling around 25km or less. That means this Outlander plug-in hybrid electric vehicle will ostensibly be a fully electric vehicle. According to NEDC testing, the Outlander can cover 54km before needing to burn any dinosaur bones. The Outlander PHEV came out in 2013, breaking ground as the first of its breed in SUV format. It’s been tweaked up for 2020, with a new driveline, specifications and pricing. Prices start from $50,990 drive-away for the ES model, and top out at $59,990 drive-away for the Exceed specification. It’s an enticing combination: full electric power for your short-haul trips around town, but longer trips are entirely possible without worrying about charging stations, plug types, recharge times or good old-fashioned range anxie...

Automotive Starter Motor Market Inclinations & Development Status Highlighted for the Forecast Period Between 2018 and 2026

An automotive starter motor is a device which converts the electrical energy stored in the battery into mechanical energy in order to crank or start the engine. The starter motor delivers the mechanical energy necessary to rotate the crankshaft for a given number of cycles. When the crankshaft starts rotating, the engine begins the process of combustion. The starter is able to disengage once the engine begins to run on its own power. Rising demand for vehicles in recent years is expected to drive the automotive starter motor market during the forecast period. The mergers and acquisitions of several key manufacturers of automotive starter motors are anticipated to further fuel the automotive starter motor market in the near future. Increasing efforts being taken by vehicle manufacturers to develop advanced technologies such as integrated starter generator in order to abide by the rules and regulations concerning improvements in fuel efficiency by reducing fuel emissions are likely to hamper the automotive starter motor market during the forecast period. The integrated starter generator helps the vehicle to start and stop automatically. In the automatic start-stop function, the sy...
