I.C.E. mpgs keep improving; EV batteries are lasting longer; And even fuel cells are still in the mix. If all this is true, then why are companies like Delphi banking on something called a 48-volt, mild hybrid as the next big thing to power your car? Well one reason could be because experts see sales of over 12-million of these mild hybrids in consumer cars by 2025.  But why guess at all this when we can hear it straight from a modern day Oracle of Delphi in the AFTER HOURS studio.

SPECIAL GUEST: Mary Gustanski, Vice President, Engineering, Delphi
