Hydrogen storage as an enabler for sustainable mobility Hardly any other technology brings engineers and environmentalists together faster than hydrogen/fuel cell propulsion. After all, the vision of emission-free energy generation and use seems obvious: Theoretically, hydrogen can be produced by electrolysis with renewable energies without […]
To date, polymer-based additively manufactured structures have failed to gain a foothold in vehicle bodies due to inadequate mechanical characteristics. Now, Audi and CIKONI have presented an approach combining additive manufacturing with carbon fiber reinforcement based on a concept study. You can either review the […]
Obviously, Geely’s acquisition of Volvo has not detracted the company from its innovativeness. On the contrary: From 2019 on, only electrified vehicles will be on offer. In addition to the drive technology, the company also relies on innovative lightweight design – at least in the […]
