Changing drive systems – The future is electric

Record number of delegates at the 10th E-MOTIVE expert forum for electric vehicle drives



The Moving Power of Engine and Turbomachinery Research (FVV)

Passion for research on engines and turbomachinery

Studying the future-oriented field of energy storage

The introduction of new technologies is often accompanied by high development costs and expensive initial investments

A sign of change – or how electromobility is changing the German industrial landscape

Trends and technologies in the development of electrical vehicle drives were in the spotlight at the ninth E-MOTIVE expert forum. VDMA has conducted a study called “Antrieb im Wandel” (“Drives are Changing”), the aim of which is to provide orientation for the mechanical engineering sector during the transformation process.


The E-MOTIVE Board comprises decision-makers from the industry and pools expert knowledge from the different sectors relevant to electromobility, including the automotive industry, electrical engineering, mobile machines and suppliers.

Forschungsvereinigung Antriebstechnik e.V. - Research Association for Drive Technology (FVA)

Cooperative industrial research enables expertise to be shared profitably. The German Research Association for Drive Technology FVA (Forschungsvereinigung Antriebstechnik e. V.) has been proving this for the past 50 years.


In the Speed2E project, industry and scientific experts are working together to develop an innovative high-speed drive train for use in electric cars.
