Automotive Features and Technology Benchmarking

Unprecedented ability to compare automotive technologies and specifications

Which specifications are required to succeed in a market?

Which OEM is expected to have the offerings with the right technology choices to meet shifts in market demands?

With hundreds of features across numerous components, it can be difficult to accurately benchmark how one vehicle stacks up against another. And that’s just today. It becomes near impossible when considering future vehicles and new technologies that haven’t even deployed yet. In the last six years, 75 new brands with cutting edge technology bundles have entered the light vehicle segment. How many will launch in the next six years and what features will they contain? More importantly, how will you keep track of it all and see how your vehicles compare? Features and Technology Benchmarking covers over 1000 technology types from 10 different domains:

  • Autonomous
  • Chassis
  • E-Mobility
  • Electric/Electronic
  • Infotainment
  • Interior Comfort and Passive Safety
  • Lighting
  • Powertrain
  • Thermal
  • User Interface/User Experience

What’s included

IHS Markit helps OEMs and suppliers understand current and future OEM technology bias and competitive positioning, along with emerging technology trends. Our new Features and Technology Benchmarking (FTB) solutions help you identify which vehicle segments will adopt which technologies and provide insight into gaps in specific markets.
