The Center for Automotive Research (CAR) produces industry-driven research and analyses; develops forecasts; fosters dialogue and convenes forums; and publicly disseminates our research through conferences, events, and the media. Our mission is to educate, inform and advise industry stakeholders, policy makers, and the general public on critical issues facing the automotive industry and its impact on the U.S. economy and society.
As an independent, non-profit, research organization with a multi-disciplinary approach, CAR engages with leaders in the global automotive industry to support technology advancements and improve the competitiveness of the U.S. automotive industry. We succeed through close collaboration and strong relationships with automakers, suppliers, industry associations, government, non-profits, labor organizations, and educational institutions.
