Powertrain technology and regulation are rapidly evolving—yet powertrain suppliers do not necessarily have the resources to adequately monitor this changing landscape. CAR facilitates open discussion via regular roundtables focused on non-proprietary and non-competitive topics as they pertain to understanding fuel economy and emissions regulations, identifying gaps and opportunities in the future of Powertrain Technologies, Alternative Fuels, Policy (emissions, fuel economy, GHG), and better understanding how customers will react to current and future regulations.
