Are you at the forefront of automotive technology, developing tomorrow’s cutting-edge products today?

SMMT is calling on all automotive innovators to finalise their entries for this year’s Award for Automotive Innovation, as there are just five weeks remaining before the entry deadline closes at midnight on 24 August 2011.

Sponsored by GKN Driveline, the Award recognises excellence in automotive design, engineering and technology, highlighting achievements in innovation and acknowledging ideas that have already benefitted, or have the potential to deliver, automotive excellence. The Award is free to enter and open to any individual or organisation wishing to highlight their contribution to the UK automotive industry.

Last year’s Award was presented to Gordon Murray Design for the iStream©, which wowed judges with its innovative approach to manufacturing. It uses disruptive technology for large-scale vehicle production, reducing costs and its environmental impact and has since gone on to form the basis of the T.25 and a prototype electric vehicle, the T.27, which was unveiled earlier this year.

Shortlisted entries receive industry recognition within one of the UK’s most diverse and exciting industries and the winner will be presented with the Award at SMMT’s 95th Annual Dinner on 22 November 2011.
