Rising demand for electric vehicles (EVs) places a lot of responsibilities on the shoulders of automakers and their engineering partners to deliver the best within the budget. While high cost, range anxiety and lack of charging infrastructure are some of the well-known hindrances in the wide-scale adoption of electric mobility, there are also challenges related to designing and manufacturing of EVs. The ‘Cover Story’ explores feasible solutions to some of these lingering issues. With the rise in speed limits, the requirement for advanced braking system has also increased, as India ranks among the top countries in road accidents. "Special Feature" focuses on trends in braking system industry as the demand for anti-lock braking system (ABS) is all set for a robust growth. "Market Watch" focuses on the automotive lubricants market as manufacturers gear up to tap the market by expanding geographically, rolling out new products and developing brand-specific lubricants. Also read "Tech Drive" to know how IoT will become increasingly significant in transportation and logistics over the next few years.
