Using electricity for automotive vehicle powertrains provides great opportunities and challenges in the areas of driver assistance, powertrains, energy storage, air conditioning, driving resistance, acoustics, infrastructure, charging technology and communications. 

Together with its partners, the FKFS is strongly dedicated to the different areas of electromobility and is conducting various research projects. The institute focuses on a holistic approach to electromobility. In addition to electrically driven powertrains, it is engaged in working on systems associated with electromobility, such as infrastructure, usage patterns, thermal simulation and driver assistance, all of which are applicable to this new approach to mobility. 

With its outstanding infrastructure, a versatile fleet of electric vehicles and special test facilities, the FKFS is extremely well-equipped to meet the challenges for research on sustainable vehicle and mobility concepts.
