Your energy boost for electric mobility-related services
We find answers to electric mobility questions for insurance companies, car manufacturers, fleet operators and mobility service providers, and help with the development of safe, intelligent products and services.
3 reasons why you should talk to us about electric mobility
From our electric mobility portfolio
Electric vehicle benchmarking
The MTC team uses the latest methods to compare electric vehicles under real-life conditions and in simulated usage scenarios. We make well-founded statements about range, consumption, charging behavior, thermal management and much more, thus helping you to increase customer acceptance of your product and its perception in the market.
We use the latest methods and technologies to assess the risks of electric mobility
The risk assessment of electric vehicles is currently based on limited data. One key question, for example, is about comparability with conventional forms of mobility – how do the warranty risks of electric powertrains differ from those associated with internal combustion engines? Using tests that go far beyond the “New European Driving Cycle” (NEDC) test bench measurement and the World Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) lab test, the MTC can draw a more realistic picture of your electric vehicle’s performance. The MTC team assesses, compares and gives advice on optimization.
We determine an individual battery score (state of health, diagnosis and prognosis) for your electric vehicle, thus enabling timely statements about the health and future ageing behavior of the vehicle’s battery. Using simulations, digital twins, test bench applications and test chambers, our experts develop detailed degradation models for the powertrain batteries of electric vehicles. This allows us to compare vehicles with each other down to the model level.
With the battery score, we help to develop warranty models, increase residual values, and make the remarketing of electric vehicles more attractive. Real-time monitoring enables you to take battery-saving measures at an early stage.

From our toolbox
Battery test chambers
We carry out the latest durability tests under controlled environmental conditions, using standardized but realistic load profiles. With continuously developed ageing simulations, we offer the highest standards and efficiency:
- Planning, automation, performance and analysis of battery cell and module tests
- System tests for battery management systems (BMS)
Test benches for electric vehicles and powertrains
We use state-of-the-art facilities to carry out comprehensive endurance and peak load tests on electric vehicles. For this, we rely not only on established usage scenarios (WLTP, NEDC) but also on methods that we have developed ourselves.
We measure important criteria for electric vehicles, including power consumption, charging capacity, battery and cell temperatures, on a full vehicle test bench designed for speeds of up to 250 kilometers per hour. Together with our realistic testing conditions, we therefore can precisely examine all the components that are important for electric powertrain.
Tests for charging components and e-motors
We test and assess chargers, charging systems and charging infrastructures for you.
- Basic and full testing of charging infrastructures, AC, DC, high voltage chargers, high-voltage robustness
- Basic and full vehicle testing and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing
- Test for communication standard such as PLC or IEC 61851
- Further development of test cases and test bench applications
- Test bench for electric motors up to 1,000 volts
