Technology Research


CAR’s technology research analyzes the merging of technologies that create the products that we see on the road today and will see in the future. From intelligent transportation systems, especially connected and automated vehicle technology and mobility, to all aspects of vehicle propulsion, including; policy (emissions, fuel economy, GHG) and energy infrastructure, as well as the evolving material technologies and manufacturing systems.

Our technology research focuses on critical drivers of change to help you better understand the challenges and opportunities in the North American and global vehicle technology landscape.
