Cars and light trucks

The shift toward greater energy efficiency


Driven by increasing environmental awareness and increasingly stringent emissions legislation, the automotive industry is going through a period of unprecedented change. Computer technology is moving into control and monitoring arrangements for many vehicle systems. New materials, such as light alloys, are moving from specialist cars to mainstream production and new technologies are enabling even further emission reductions.

For those involved in engineering vehicles and vehicle systems, these and other changes present promising possibilities and difficult challenges. Backed by more than a century of application expertise in the automotive industry, SKF can help.
