SEMA's Powertrain Forum is a must-attend session for members involved with current and future powertrain technologies, OEM strategies for meeting fuel-economy and emissions standards and the impact on their products, revenue streams and business plans.
Powertrain technology advancements will continue at an unprecedented level for the next decade as OEMs strive to meet aggressive 2025 fuel-economy targets that are driven by new regulations. These changes will create new challenges and opportunities for performance aftermarket companies. Advanced powertrain technologies will significantly increase vehicle complexity, making it harder, more costly and more time consuming for SEMA-member manufacturers that must comply with the latest emissions requirements.
SEMA's Powertrain Forum—scheduled for Tuesday, November 4, from 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m., in rooms N258–N260 of the Las Vegas Convention Center—is a must-attend session for members interested in current and future powertrain technologies, OEM strategies for meeting fuel-economy and emissions standards, and the impact on their products, revenue streams and business plans.
Attendance is free but registration is required.
The Forum will include an overview of the SEMA-Clemson Vehicle Emissions Projects and SEMA’s Emissions Lab and Executive Order (EO) Program for vehicle compliance, as well as baseline vehicle information to help members predict the impact of aftermarket powertrain modifications on vehicle emissions.
