Automotive Innovation – DealerPinch Blog

Cars have no doubt been changing with the times. It’s a rather amazing process, if you think about it. The simple fact is, the automobile industry strives for innovation. As the next best, latest, greatest change comes along, it always leads to a advancement in the industry.

Over the years we’ve gone from front bench seats to buckets seats with head-rests, high-beams toggled from a pedal on the floor to daytime running lights that automatically turn on and hard to turn large vehicles to power steering. Automobiles have come a very long way.

I’m not sure if you remember, but there were cars that didn’t have seat belts, and now we have airbag systems that protect the driver’s head from bumping the passenger’s. There are intricate computer systems that allow us to alter the sequence of shifting, setting us from sport mode with agile handling to economic fuel reserving modes.

The advancements that this multi trillion dollar industry has brought us are all quite interesting and it only gets better.

We have advanced breaking systems, as well as drive systems that calculate the grip of each tire, thus distributing a sliding scale of traction to each tire. There are even auto-correcting features in some models that take control when we’ve spun around and redirect the car in the original direction it was traveling.

As we explore the edges of the earth for sustainable energy sources that leave the lightest footprint on earth, we’ve come to embrace electric motors and hybrid systems that wean us off of the fossil fuels – something we as a people have become rather dependent on.

There are still so many choices out there. The prices range from note-worthy pint-sized money savers to expansively luxurious expenses that only a few people can currently afford to take advantage of.

In fact, today’s automobiles represent the most technologically sophisticated objects that consumers own.

According to www.autoalliance.org:

“A recent report by The Boston Consulting Group (BCG), a global management consulting firm operating in 43 countries, found that almost half of the world’s top 20 “Most Innovative Companies” are automakers.

In fact, for the first time this year’s top 20 list included more automobile manufacturers than technology companies. Fourteen automakers are included in BCG’s top 50 innovative companies — only four years ago, BCG put eight auto firms on its list.”

auto.howstuffworks.com embraces these changes with:

“Many new car technologies are either specifically built for safety or at least have some sort of safety focus to them. Some of the latest car innovations we’ve found are some truly exciting technologies that could revolutionize not just the automotive industry but human transportation in general.

So what’s in store for future cars? Well, we don’t know for sure, but based on what’s currently being tested and what’s on the road today, we have an idea of some new technology that will most likely make it into production. Some of it will help keep us safe, some will give us information like never before and some will let us kick back and just enjoy the ride.”

If you’ve never owned a new car with modern advancements, now is the time to step out into the world and experience what a change cars and trucks of today have become.
