IHS Automotive and Auto Care Association Partner on Industry Analysis Webinar Series

Michael Robinet, managing director of automotive advisory services, IHS Automotive, will discuss vehicle lightweighting and what is driving OEMs and suppliers to strive for increased vehicle efficiency.

auto-care-association-logoThe Auto Care Association and IHS Automotive have partnered to present a new Industry Analysis Webinar Series featuring experts on key issues currently facing the industry. Each webinar will be presented by an IHS Automotive industry expert. The first webinar will be presented by Michael Robinet, managing director of automotive advisory services, IHS Automotive, on Tuesday, June 28th, at 2 p.m. ET.

Robinet will be presenting, “A Decade of Change – Lightweighting the Key to Compliance.” Emissions standards in the U.S. (i.e., U.S. CAFE Fuel Economy and GHG standards) and around the world are driving OEMs and suppliers to strive for increased vehicle efficiency in the form of more efficient powertrains, reduced mass and increased aerodynamics through the use of lighter materials and electrification. In this webinar, Robinet will discuss the challenges facing both the OE and aftermarket industries and the various solutions OEMs and suppliers are implementing.

The Industry Analysis Webinar Series will include six webinars, scheduled from June through December 2016. Future webinar topics include information on consumers and the connected car, global forecasting and strategic planning, and auto care industry trends including powertrain and commercial vehicle.

There is no fee to attend, but attendees are encouraged to register early due to limited availability. The webinars are open to Auto Care Association members. For more information, visit www.autocare.org/industry-analysis-webinars or contact Sue Kalish at (240) 333-1047 or [email protected].
