Types Of Automotive Components

There are multiple components in an automobile. But every car needs these four components to function properly. 

  • The Chassis.
  • The Engine.
  • The Transmission System.
  • The Body.

In addition to these four primary components, an automotive component manufacturer also has a variety of controls and optional extras.

Automotive components include the suspension system, wheels, and tires. As part of the vehicle’s control system, learning about the car’s brakes and steering is equally crucial.

The controls’ intended function is to direct the vehicle’s motion. The auxiliaries are optional extras that can improve the driving experience.

Economic Impact of Automotive Component Manufacturing

Automotive component manufacturing is a major economic driver. For example, in the USA, it has contributed between 3 and 3.5 percent to GDP. More than 1.7 million people are directly employed in the automotive sector, all of whom work on various aspects of car development, production, and distribution.

Raw materials, construction, manufacturing, legal, computers and semi-conductors, financial, advertising, healthcare, and so on are all heavily consumed by the industry. Annually, the car industry invests between $16 and $18 billion in R&D, most coming from within the sector itself. So, it’s hard to picture American manufacturing thriving without the auto industry.

Explore Automotive Components Manufacturing Applications

Improvements in vehicle handling, efficiency, safety, and performance have been a persistent focus for automakers for well over a century. 

Recent years have seen improvements in stopping systems, traction control, and even accident avoidance due to the widespread usage of microprocessors, fast communications, and sensor technologies. Some modern vehicles use electric motors or hybrid designs to cut down on their dependency on traditional engine fuels, and electronic ignition systems have also been shown to boost performance and efficiency. 

Every automotive component manufacturer continues to subject their products to battery testing and inspections to assure consistent quality and, more importantly, continued emphasis on safety. Robotics has found widespread application in industry to improve efficiency, cut costs, and eradicate error-prone human intervention.

Frequently Asked Questions

The automobile and the automotive industries are closely linked. Therefore, the two terms are sometimes used interchangeably. The noun “automobile” is commonly used to refer to a specific type of four-wheeled automobile built for passenger transportation, whereas the adjective “automotive” describes a broader category of motor vehicles.

Some of the different automotive systems are:

  •  Intake System
  •  Exhaust System
  •  Fuel System
  •  Valve Train
  • Engine Electrical



Backed by decades of expertise in design, development, manufacturing and supply of progressive metal stamping tools and components.
