  1. The requirements for electronics on the new energy vehicles are higher than that on traditional vehicles.
  2. The requirements for electronics in the new energy vehicles are higher than that in traditional vehicles.

If I want to express that electronics on/in the new energy vehicles are more demanding in performance requirements, which one should I opt for?

    It's not really a clear-cut choice. Probably in is more likely than on for your exact context. But for, of, or with (and probably other prepositions) would also be "valid". – FumbleFingers Oct 4 '18 at 13:47
  • Note that there are two different implications here, which aren't clarified by anything in your question text - (1) the electronics are more demanding (they need more electrical power, for example), and (2) designers and/or drivers demand more (performance) from the electronics (to manage / lie about exhaust emissions, for example! :) – FumbleFingers Oct 4 '18 at 13:52
  • @FumbleFingers, another question: the wording of the entire sentence [The requirements for electronics on the new energy vehicles are higher than that on traditional vehicles.]is okay, right? – Mike Philip Oct 4 '18 at 13:52
  • I'd say the same ambiguity is still present in your rephrasing in that comment. – FumbleFingers Oct 4 '18 at 13:54
