Our future auto portfolio.

The Energy Information Agency takes a stab at predicting  what the breakdown will be in future automobile engines:


The biggest increase looks to be from "mild hybrid," defined thus:

"Vehicles that use a gasoline engine with a larger battery and electrically-powered auxiliary systems that allow the engine to be turned off when the vehicle is coasting or idle and then be quickly restarted. These vehicles are recharged using regenerative braking but do not provide electric traction to support motive power to the vehicle."
