In a troubled 2020 where electric is the future and zero emission electric motors are truly underway
the industry needs to consider “green” thinking of consumers as it will play a major role for the
future car architectures. In this panel discussion you will be able to get insights on:
• Requirements for design and innovation that lead to key success
• Does sharing know-how through platforms work? Facilities and technical resources?
• Balance on achieving efficient electrical performance and acceleration
