The automotive (and small truck) market segment faces many challenges today and in the future as a result of ever tightening CO2 emission regulations. Electrification of vehicles and also transport limitations in congested areas will drive those changes in both vehicle construction and transmission. These changes imply the use of lighter and better performing material and components like our fiber reinforced thermoplastic tubes for shafts, frames and passenger safety structures.
