Full Description:

This report, supported by the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, measures the technological nature of today’s auto industry and compares it to other sectors of the economy often viewed as technologically advanced. Products manufactured by the automotive industry are among the most technologically sophisticated available to the general public. The vehicles American consumers drive off dealership lots across the country are the end result of a long series of high-tech stages encompassing education, research, testing, and manufacturing – leading to machines that typically operate for a decade or more and travel hundreds of thousands of miles in all types of weather and over all kinds of roads.
