The 67th IAA Commercial Vehicles 2018 is now well and truly underway. The focus of the this year’s event are subjects close to our heart: digitization; connectivity; autonomous driving and electric mobility.
In the IAA’s opening press conference, Bernhard Mattes, VDA President (the event organizers), says: “Here at the IAA the drive for innovation in this key industry is visible to everybody. Yes, it is true that electric mobility and digitization were already central topics at the IAA 2016. But there is a crucial difference: then it was mostly concept vehicles and studies that were on display. This year Hannover is highlighting the new e-vehicles in large numbers that are now going into series production.”
This year, Auto Futures is there in force. From MAN and Ford through to Volvo and Goodyear, our production team has been busy interviewing a host of senior industry executives. To download interviews and footage from IAA please click on this link. https://bit.ly/2pmH81j
