E-mobility Testing

Testing and certification for e-mobility solutions

  • Safe is where reliable power meets clean mobility

    The electrification of the automotive industry is happening at a dizzying pace. It's expected that by 2021, there willl be five times more electric vehicles on the road than today. Though nothing new to key automotive players, EV technology has evolved significantly and will continue to evolve in the coming years, offering a viable and competitive alternative to combustion engines. The hybrid electric vehicle, plug-in hybrid and battery electric vehicle markets are continuing to grow and change, as well as the energy grid and charging infrastructures.  

    Regulations are a driving force behind the electrification of the automotive powertrain as well. With rules for CO2 emissions tightening, zero emission zones coming into effect and tax exemptions for clean modes of transport, cost of ownership will soon favor electric mobility. Europe, China and the United States are preparing for a future in which the electric powertrain will take up an increasingly larger share of the automotive fleet. DEKRA's e-mobility services are part of an international test network for connected, automated and electric driving.
