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.

In the age of climate change, electric mobility is the great hope for safe and sustainable mobility for all. However the new technologies associated with it also bring new uncertainties that stand in the way of the rapid market penetration of electric vehicles. The Mobility Technology Center helps to assess new risks arising from the use and application of electric mobility. We support you in assessing the performance of electric vehicles and help to determine, predict and optimize the condition and ageing of high-voltage batteries. This creates certainty and increases acceptance among your customers!

3 reasons why you should talk to us about electric mobility

Greater transparency
We create transparency as regards the performance and health of electric vehicles and high-voltage batteries.
More sustainability
We support you with resource-efficient use and maximization of the service life of electric vehicles and high-voltage batteries.
Higher residual value
We help to increase the residual value and value creation of electric vehicles and fleets and reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO).

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.

We advise you on the development and use of electric vehicles and high-voltage components. Our focus is on safety, risk optimization and sustainability. We assess your products based on these criteria and provide the necessary data.

From our toolbox

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)

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.
