The Automotive & Transportation group at Frost & Sullivan is pleased to announce its exclusive 2007 quarterly interactive webinar on Wednesday, July 18, 2007 at 1:00 p.m. EDT titled "Fuel-efficient and clean hybrid-electric powertrains: are they moving toward the mainstream in North American light vehicle markets?"

In an era of chronic high fuel prices and tightening environmental pressures, the hybrid gasoline-electric powertrain with a strong "green image" is gaining more attention and traction in the marketplace. Still, this premium-priced powertrain option has questionable economic paybacks for most prospective buyers.

Highlights of the briefing include a review of light hybrid market drivers/restraints, key types of hybrids (micro, mild, full, plug-in) and related technologies, vehicle market outlook by OE brand, key subsystem market outlook and key players. This briefing will benefit hybrid vehicle assemblers (OEMs) and their component/subsystem manufacturers, as well as other powertrain observers, by discussing emerging trends and providing forward projections for the North American light hybrid-electric vehicle market.
