The new roadmap, Automotive Plastics and Polymer Composites: A Roadmap for Future Mobility, calls for a series of industry-wide, collaborative activities to capture opportunities in each area of the ACCESS framework—Autonomy, Connectivity, Circularity, Electrification, Shared Mobility, and Sustainability.

To develop the roadmap, ACC’s Plastics Division, which represents America's Plastic Makers®, worked closely with the automotive industry, government agencies, federal labs and research community. “The future of personal mobility is not possible without plastics and polymer composites,” said Gina Oliver, of ACC’s Automotive Team, which developed the roadmap. “This roadmap provides our industry with a guide for coordinated, cross-sector action that will ensure automakers can create the breakthrough innovations needed to achieve safe, modern mobility solutions.”

Learn how: 

•    Plastics and composites enable seamless integration of sensors, electronics, and
      batteries without adding extra weight

•    Plastics can improve wear and tear in shared vehicles and enable
      multi-configurable interiors in autonomous vehicles

•    Composites can reduce the weight of heavy autonomous and electric vehicle
      components by 50 to 75 percent
