Conference

Drivetrain Solutions for Commercial Vehicles 2019

  • Only event of its kind in Europe with a focus on drivetrain solutions for commercial vehicles
  • International Networking
  • Free admission to some 80 expert lectures being held at the "Dritev"
Drivetrain Solutions for Commercial Vehicles 2019 | VDI Wissensforum

In light of CO2 regulations getting more and more stringent, commercial vehicle manufacturers are faced with the development of alternatives to replace the conventional powertrain. Although a battery-powered solution is particularly attractive for city traffic, it does not seem to be doable for heavy commercial traffic due to capacity and weight-saving reasons – at least in the medium term. Therefore hybrid concepts and synthetic fuels are of crucial interest.

Various Approaches to reduce Emissions

At the 6th International Conference "Drivetrain Solutions for Commercial Vehicles" (previously "Transmissions in Commercial Vehicles") major players in the commercial vehicle sector will give an insight into the latest developments of powertrain solutions that solely run on battery power as well as concepts based on hybrid and conventional solutions.

Main topics

  •           Synthetic fuels: Varieties, costs, general conditions
  •           Electrification Concepts for light and medium duty vehicles
  •           Potentials of commercial vehicles run on natural gas
  •           Hydrogen mobility for the heavy freight segment 
  •           Advanced simulation methods for developers
