The automotive industry’s strive for low emissions and high energy efficiency brought up a large diversity in the field of (vehicle) propulsion systems. Driven by changing market demands and increasingly strict regulations the challenge remains for OEMs and suppliers as well as for academia to improve technical solutions while coping with the wide spectrum of powertrain types and vehicle models, in a most cost-efficient way.

  • Will diversity be the appropriate solution, offering the most efficient propulsion system for each of the different requirements?
  • Will diversity increase or decrease in the near future?
  • How can diversity be handled – as challenge for R&D and manufacturing?
  • Which powertrain technologies will serve future mobility needs best?
  • What will be the impacts of resources on the further development, now and up to 2050?
    Will potential shortages eliminate some powertrain solutions?

The full range of propulsion systems will be on the conference agenda. Eco-Mobility 2019 will discuss the impacts of different propulsion system solutions and provide in-depth information on latest developments and innovative strategies.
Leading representatives from industry, R&D and technology policy will report on the activities and strategies for the successful development and market introduction of advanced propulsion systems and fuels.
