Experiences Per Mile Advisory Council

Industry wide collaboration that changing value chains in automotive being driven by the connected movement
Experiences Per Mile Advisory Council

From RPM to “EPM”

The way consumers measure a car’s worth is shifting as they explore new ways to connect with their vehicles. Buyers now pay more attention to how many new connected experiences are possible with the technology available in their car, rather than the engine’s horsepower, cornering abilities, or brand name. As this transformation from Revolutions per Minute (RPM) to Experience per Mile (EPM) continues, the automotive industry must find new ways to adapt—if we don’t, we’ll suffer the risk of being left behind.
The Experiences Per Mile Advisory Council was formed by HARMAN and SBD Automotive to encourage collaboration among an exclusive group of automotive executives, analysts and industry insiders regarding the changing value chains in automotive being driven by the connected movement. The purpose of the Advisory Council is to uncover best practices and foster cross-industry innovation to define and improve the in-vehicle experience for consumers.

The Experiences Per Mile Advisory Council participants are “C” level executives from OEMs, Tier-one suppliers, third-party providers, and more. This council is an exclusive, “invitation only” group where creativity is encouraged, and an open dialogue takes place.


Active discussions will center on how intelligent technology and recent consumer trends are reshaping the experience inside the vehicle, and what this will mean for automakers and consumers alike. Discuss Experiences per Mile positioning and measurement, both in the industry and for your specific company. The group may form industrywide processes related to the value of the in-vehicle experience for consumers as it relates to automotive OEMs, Suppliers, Shared Mobility Companies, Technology Providers, Telecommunications providers, Government Regulators, and other relevant stakeholders.


Automotive and non-automotive companies have an urgent need to offer the optimum connected vehicle experiences to their ever-changing base of customers. Consumers are demanding personalized experiences and the industry must meet those needs. The most forward-thinking industry members must get involved now to make significant changes.


​Council members will serve as active participants in conversations that directly impact the direction of our industry. The commitment is:

  • Attend quarterly council meetings over a 2-year period (through December 2021)
  • Actively participate in the discussions during each meeting 
  • Participate in ongoing communication between each event
