At the IMS, various projects dealing with the subject of electromobility are investigated, which should contribute to the implementation of ecologically sustainable mobility that is cost-effective and suitable for everyday use. Here, purely electric drive systems but also plug-in hybrid and range extender concepts are considered.
In research at the IMS, emphasis is placed on optimizing the powertrain on the one hand, and on the other hand, not looking at the “vehicle” system in isolation but in the overall context with energy generation and user behavior. For example, the potentials are being explored by linking the transport and energy generation sectors to improve the overall environmental performance. Other projects focus on the implementation of innovative, efficient and high-performance powertrain concepts.
