02/08/2011

Frost & Sullivan will hold a complimentary web conference, entitled Micro Cars – Mega Promises, taking place on Wednesday, 16th February 2011, at 2 p.m. BST.

Online PR News – 08-February-2011 – – Stakeholders are expecting high future growth rates in the European micro car market comprising quadricycles and a new class of sub-A vehicles. Tighter emission norms, increased safety while driving and in many cases even qualifying vehicle crash tests have turned micro cars from a protected niche product into a highly competitive segment in the automotive industry. The market will be driven by greener agendas and public subsidies which meet the necessary standards of European regulations.

Frost & Sullivan will hold a complimentary web conference, entitled Micro Cars – Mega Promises, taking place on Wednesday, 16th February 2011, at 2 p.m. BST. Industry Analyst, Vishwas Shankar, will provide an overview of the European micro car market and its size; the key participants in the market and their announced vehicle offerings. The web conference will draw top level comparisons of micro car features and prices and highlight the conventional European micro car manufacturer’s perspectives and future outlook.

You may also register to receive a recorded version of the briefing at anytime by submitting the aforementioned contact details.

“The rise of Carsharing, the corresponding decline in car ownership and an expanding EV recharging infrastructure have increased popularity of micro cars in Europe,” observes Vishwas. “35-40 micro car manufacturers have announced the imminent launch of 60-65 base models in Europe before 2017. The Paris Motor Show 2010 gave a clear indication in this direction with numerous micro cars on display”, he says.

This web conference will primarily benefit European component manufacturers, distributors, vehicle manufacturers, technology partners and those planning to penetrate the European region. In an era of evolving mega cities and changing mobility patterns, the web conference will help conventional manufacturers to prepare for intense competition in the micro cars segment.

Distributors and component manufacturers will gather information to justify investments in the right places in order to achieve accelerated increased turnover. The web conference, which presents a consolidated picture of the niche and protected micro car segment, will also help technology partners to promote the right technology that would drive the vehicles of tomorrow.
