             Welcome to Automotive Design magazine, a collaborative
             project between SAE International and Findlay Media.

             The design and engineering element within the automotive
             industry has never been more important, with a large part of its
             resurgence depending on the successful development of new,
             efficient and cost effective cars.

             Automotive Design provides its 20,000 audience of Europe wide
             design engineers a cross section of technology based case
             studies and features. The emphasis is on a combination of
             practical application technology transfer and raising awareness
             of forthcoming technologies, outlining the potential benefits and

             Automotive Design fulfills the need for a strong design
             engineering title within the European automotive industry, from
             the OEM downwards through the supply chain. In harness, SAE
             International’s peerless knowledge base and Findlay’s heritage
             within the European automotive sector makes Automotive Design
             the perfect brand to meet that need.

             We hope to make your experience of working with us a
             rewarding and successful one.

A new partnership
The challenges facing the automotive sector have never been
sterner: emissions, efficiency and safety are just a few of the key
issues the industry must face up to and meet. These are the
challenges that the men and women in the industry relish, that
spur them on to develop fresh, creative solutions.

Working with SAE International, it is our intention to report on the
latest developments throughout the European sector, with input
from Europe’s leading automotive writers.

Within each, issue we allow for a significant focus on a single
vertical area. This could be concentrating on the use of light
weight materials, or powertrain developments, drive trains,
electronics and more. This means that readers get a broad
scope of relevant content in each magazine, as well as in-depth
coverage on a specific area in each issue. With this content, the
product is much more likely to be archived by its readers.

Every issue will include interviews with leading OEM and supplier
engineers providing valuable insight into technology challenges,
individual model designs and even OEM platform strategies.

The magazine is supported by a website containing many web
2.0 features including blogs, reader comments on any and all
stories, videos, downloadable white papers and more.

I am very excited about leading the editorial team and look
forward to working with you in the future. If you have any feature
or news ideas then please contact me.
