The Automotive Design & Production Production Zone consists of the hardware—tools, machining centers, grinders, etc.—that is used in automotive manufacturing.
The design and engineering capabilities of Mazda are remarkable. Realize that according to Autodata, in 2014 Mazda’s share of the U.S. market was 1.9%—and the share of the Ford Fusion alone was 1.9%. Yet the CX-3 subcompact crossover and the MX-5 roadster are vehicles that few other vehicle manufacturers can match.
ZF (zf.com) is working to develop technologies that will contribute to safer, more-efficient, and, yes, even automated driving. And we had the chance to literally take these for a drive.
Scion has always been a bit, well, quirky. And perhaps in keeping with that off-beat approach to the industry, it is launching two entirely different vehicles—a sedan and a hatch—at the same time.

Wind tunnel testing is absolutely essential for creating cars and trucks that are sufficiently slippery to cut through the air with efficiency for improved fuel efficiency.
