Our holistic approach to e-mobility services to ensure the safety and quality of electric vehicles

What is e-mobility and what kind of services are related?

Climate change and global warming are creating a need for radical changes in the way we consume energy. Government regulations to reduce carbon emissions are driving the need for alternative fuel vehicles. Powered by batteries or fuel cells, electric vehicles are the future of road transport.
To date, the electric drivetrain marks the most advanced road transportation technology and is ready to become the global future of transport. The term e-mobility represents this important change in the automotive industry.

These new vehicle energy models translate into the exploration of new territories in electric powertrain technology as well as interconnectivity and interdependency of various automotive components. Due to this, the automotive industry needs strong technical support to ensure that their products, systems and components perform correctly, are safe, meet international regulatory standards, and meets the highest quality. Electric car services support you in component and system testing and certification, full-vehicle homologation and compliance, as well as benchmarking, and various training services.
