Our approach

A2MAC1 analyzes more than 100 new best-in-class vehicles every year, launched by innovative start-ups, technology leaders and cost challengers worldwide. We are identifying design, technology, and performance highlights for the full vehicle on domain-level (e.g. powertrain) down to the level of individual parts. We connect technology, performance, and supply chain insights with a detailed evaluation of cost and sustainability implications. This way, we reveal the secrets behind specific features and discover areas of optimization potential which will give you a head start on your competitors and emerging market trends.

How we impact your business

Our data and profound insights are tailored for engineers and executives alike. With more than 25 years of global expertise, we developed an open and flexible mindset that enables us to address all your clients’ areas of interest across all domains of the vehicle, such as the battery, the electric powertrain, and ADAS systems. A2MAC1´s experts can have the ability to derive actionable insights for improvement and turn them into tangible optimization measures for your current and future developments, from technical, performance and cost perspectives.
