The upcoming Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo in Detroit, Michigan, looks like it will be an awesome event. It bills itself as “the premier showcase for electric and hybrid vehicle technology and innovation.”
Notably, the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo is particularly focused on the manufacturing and engineering side of things. The website for the event states that it “will be attended by leading automotive and off-highway vehicle engineers, business leaders, technical experts, consultants and R&D professionals, all looking for greater efficiency and safety, while reducing the overall cost of e-mobility.”
Furthermore, the expo will be aptly co-located with “The Battery Show,” which of course zeroes in on the hearts of electric vehicles.
Confirmed exhibitors at the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo include: A123 Systems, AllCell Technologies, Argonne National Laboratory, Bloomy Energy Systems, Drive Oregon, EnerDel, EnerSys, Envision Solar, Manz USA, Maxwell Technologies, MIRA, Mission Motor Company, Siemens, Sony, and many others.
The first Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo was just in 2013. This year’s event will focus in on some specific markets of interest: commercial trucks and buses, off-highway and passenger vehicles.
Following a very popular Stop-Start session in 2013 (230 attendees), the event organizers have planned more in-depth Stop-Start content.
Here are a few more notes about last year’s show and an infographic about it:
Exhibiting companies such as Bosch Engineering, Kostal, Nidec, Zytek, TM4, dSpace, Ricardo, ATS Automation, Linamar and Dewetron showcased technological advancements across the powertrain and a wide range of vehicles from passenger and commercial to off-highway industrial vehicles. Running alongside the expo, a dedicated Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Conference hosted a high caliber and diversity of speakers from key passenger car, bus and off-highway OEMs including Chrysler, Volkswagen, GM, Hyundai, Wrightbus, Caterpillar and Raymond, as well as OEM consortium USABC.
