Aachen/Rehau, December 5, 2017 - Cars should become more environmentally friendly and efficient, the market for e-vehicles should finally be gaining momentum. EU commissioners are pushing for stricter regulations on CO2 limits, higher fines and an investment into the Europe-wide charging infrastructure. The creative minds headed by Günther Schuh, professor for machine construction in Aachen and founder of e.GO, are getting on with it: With the e.GO Life they have put a dynamic, attractive and affordable electric vehicle on the road which has caused quite a stir. REHAU, a worldwide successful development partner of the major in-dustry players, is now also a cooperation partner in this forward-looking project.
Electromobility is familiar territory for the experienced automotive supplier headquartered in Rehau/Upper Franconia, as is the RWTH Aachen Campus. "For many years already we have had a very constructive and mutually beneficial partnership," said Dr. Stefan Girschik, Deputy CEO of the REHAU Group. The creative energy and the urge to shape progress is literally palpable at the RWTH Aachen campus. "This fits in perfectly with our self-image of actively helping to shape the future of mobility as an experienced material specialist and innovative technology expert," emphasizes Girschik. E-mobility, autonomous driving, security, individualization and design as well as Industry 4.0 are all topics and trends that are currently being dealt with.
