The stuff that change is made of.

EDAG Light Cocoon - possible paradigm shift for future mobility.

It has always been difficult to assess the long-term significance of inventions. When Nikolaus August Otto invented the four-stroke engine in 1862, many people failed to realise that this milestone was about to change the world. Whether or not this flash of inspiration was the decisive factor in the triumph of the automobile is still not clear. But nevertheless, it was important.

4-in-1 Truck.

How a dissertation student at EDAG helps to shape the future of the commercial vehicle industry.

More and more goods are being transported on the motorways, and there seems to be an ever-increasing number of heavy goods vehicles on the road.

Putting ideas into practice - worldwide.

Global enthusiasm for a joint theme.

Say what you like about globalisation, one thing is certain: it helps the world to cross economic and cultural boundaries and move closer together.   This is not necessarily due only to the rapid evolution of the Internet, but also to mobility: because the reputation of a good auto brand applies worldwide. In Asia, America or Europe, people everywhere want to feel the same kind of enthusiasm for a new car. Enthusiasm for the automobile is something that we all share - it connects us, no matter where we live.

Pedestrian protection doesn't only happen on the road.

When pedestrian protection standards go beyond legal provisions.

Sporty design is  trendy! Young, dynamic and expressive – values that you often find in modern-day vehicles from premium manufacturers. They shape a design language that can be found everywhere in vehicles: a flat design and low front. What sounds exceedingly positive at first proves not to be an advantage in all aspects when you take a closer look.

Sunlight in the tank

How agile development methods help to overcome fears concerning the range of electric cars.

Solar cells on roofs have become a common sight. The sunlight absorbed is converted into electrical power, and is thus able to supply an entire house with electricity. The advantages of this form of renewable energy are obvious – no annoying price fluctuations imposed by electricity suppliers, lower CO2 emissions and the sun is an inexhaustible resource.
