The McMaster Automotive Resource Centre is one of Canada’s leading research facilities in electric and hybrid vehicles where researchers, students and industry professionals are working to resolve the issues facing the automotive industry. Together, these teams of engineers, scientists, social scientists and their students are developing sustainable solutions for the industry including the development of hybrid and electric powertrains, building highly efficient and cost-effective powertrain components and identifying light materials to make cars more fuel efficient.

The MARC building was developed in 2013 within an existing building at 200 Longwood Rd. South. The $26-million facility occupies approximately 90,000 square feet on two floors and is one of very few in the world located in an academic setting allowing both private and public sectors to work together to develop, design, and test hybrid technology. The redeveloped space includes state-of-the-art commercial garage space with multiple bays ready to receive cars for experiments and testing.
