Tackling the most important issues in the Automotive industry
Improving vehicle performance and enhancing driving experiences, while maximizing production efficiency is challenging. Trelleborg’s engineered polymer solutions use innovative technologies to meet today’s automotive requirements.
E-mobility: The next generation is already here
Steps are being taken to move away from fossil fuel use in cars and develop fully electric, hybrid electric and hydrogen fuel cell powered vehicles. One of the keys to the growth of electric cars is that components are available that allow vehicles to operate effectively. In addition, car drivers want the independence they are used to from traditionally fueled vehicles and overcoming “range anxiety” is critical to mass adoption of electric vehicles.
The intelligent car, once the stuff of science fiction, is now becoming a reality rather than a fantasy. Though the self-driving car may still be far off, features such as active safety and driver assist are on the near horizon or already in series production on premium cars. New technologies from Trelleborg combine to improve safety systems and the driving experience of passengers.
The quest for an electric car that will be adopted in volume has intensified as manufacturers seek to lower CO2 emissions and retain vehicle access in some of the world’s most crammed cities. An increasing number of vehicles is running on environmentally friendly fuels. However, vehicles need to be adapted to be able to use these fuels.
