Many automakers have unveiled plans to release a significant number of electric vehicle (EV) models over the coming years, with many set to debut more affordable models in the next 5–10 years. Consumer demand together with more stringent environmental regulations are driving automotive OEMs to expand offerings to cover their entire portfolios—including SUVs and pickup trucks. Join this webinar to learn from automotive experts how additive manufacturing can address the need for shorter product development cycles, lighter-weight components and class A finished final parts.

This webinar is part of a multi-part series about 3D printing for EVs. To learn more and to view the other sessions as they are announced, please check out the full series.
