2022 PACE Award winners


Has your innovation been sold to an OEM? Is your innovation commercialized? The Automotive News PACE Award is the program for you. With more than a quarter century of history recognizing innovations driven by automotive suppliers, the PACE Award is recognized in the global automotive industry for identifying and celebrating the latest game-changing innovation from the plant floor to the product to the showroom floor.

Do you have an early-stage innovation not yet sold to an OEM customer? PACEpilot is the program for you. PACEpilot enters its third year in 2022. It is designed to recognize post-pilot pre-commercial innovations in the automotive and future mobility space. These represent product, software/IT system or process and idea incubators that have the potential to revolutionize an automaker’s business and products.
