New SAE International Book Offers Engineering Trends of 2014 Concept Cars and 2015 New Passenger Cars

WARRENDALE, Pa., March 6, 2015 -

A new book from SAE International provides snapshots of the latest and greatest technologies introduced by the automotive industry in 2014 concept cars and 2015 new passenger cars.

Every year global automakers introduce new or significantly re-engineered passenger vehicles with increasingly advanced technology intended to exceed consumer expectations and satisfy increasingly stringent government regulations. Some of these technologies are firsts-of-their-kind and start trends that other automakers soon follow—with the innovations becoming adopted across the board.

The “2015 Passenger Car and 2014 Concept Car Yearbook” comprises articles from the pages of SAE International’s Automotive Engineering magazine. Readers will have, in one publication, a complete overview of the key advances that took place over the course of the year from around the world. Each new model is profiled in its own chapter and features novel engineering aspects of the vehicle, with exclusive interviews of key engineers and product developers.

This book is published for the most technically-minded enthusiasts who are interested in new car technologies, as well as practicing automotive engineers who are interested in new engineering trends. The “2015 Passenger Car and 2014 Concept Car Yearbook”:

·         Provides a single source for information on the key engineering trends of the year from both automaker and supplier perspectives.

·         Allows the reader to skip to chapters that cover specific car models that interest them, or read about all models from beginning to end.
