On July 4, 1894, in Kokomo, Ind., Elwood Haynes road-tested his “Pioneer,” one of the earliest motor vehicles in America, and launched Indiana’s reputation for automotive innovation. Today Indiana’s prowess as an automotive manufacturing haven is undeniable. More than 500,000 Hoosiers are employed in more than 630 companies, contributing upwards of $9 billion to the state’s economy, and ranking it second in the nation among automotive producers.

Since 2011, the Indiana Automotive Council (IAC) has brought together executives representing Indiana’s industry to work with higher education and government, ensuring Indiana’s automotive assets continue to place the state among global giants in automotive innovation, technology, public policy and workforce development.

Indiana companies represented on the IAC are located throughout Indiana and are shown on the map below:
