As we approach the two-year anniversary of the formation of the EPM Advisory Council—an organization formed by HARMAN and SBD Automotive in 2019 to fuel meaningful consumer innovation through cross-industry collaboration. We recently interviewed three founding members of the Council and spoke about what “Experiences Per Mile” means to them, why their organization chose to join the initiative, and much more.

Intended for automotive technology professionals and mobility enthusiasts alike, the HARMAN Experiences Per Mile podcast explores consumer-centric mobility experiences and the technologies driving them. In this special series, we hear from executives at Ford, Hyundai, and TomTom.
