Developing next-generation automotive powertrain technology is a complex challenge. Design engineers need to translate global demands into cost-effective, pioneering solutions and stay ahead of competitors. 

Today´s move to e-mobility brings new challenges, such as increased power density and performance, thermal management, and reduced cost of manufacture in high-voltage electric motors. With its PEEK-based insulation Victrex says it is providing a viable solution that can help address these challenges.

Automotive Industries (AI) asked Andy Walton, Global Director for Automotive, Victrex what he sees as the future for high-performance plastics in cars.
