MUNICH — The mobility and transportation industry is asking commercial vehicle manufacturers and fleet operators for new strategies, concepts and products that meet the demand for e-mobility. Knorr-Bremse, a global market leader for braking systems and other rail and commercial vehicle systems, is providing commercial vehicle manufacturers with steady support as they make the transition. Knorr-Bremse will be presenting its strategy and product portfolio for the e-mobility transformation at IAA TRANSPORTATION 2022 in Hanover on Sept. 20-25 (Hall 12, Booth C21).
Electric mobility will fundamentally change the architecture of commercial vehicles, as well as the system requirements it must fulfil. Bernd Spies, Member of the Executive Board of Knorr-Bremse AG and responsible for the Commercial Vehicle Systems division, sees Knorr-Bremse as a reliable partner for navigating this systemic transformation – a partner already deeply embedded in the commercial vehicle industry:
“We’ve focused our mindset, business processes and product portfolio on e-mobility – and this includes taking responsibility for cutting energy consumption and carbon emissions,” said Spies. “By leveraging our vast experience, we aim to adapt our existing product portfolio while simultaneously expanding our activities into new areas of business. We intend to pursue joint project opportunities with our customers by anticipating the system solutions and business models they’ll need in the future.”
Knorr-Bremse’s Commercial Vehicle Systems division is already developing many new products that meet the requirements for electric commercial vehicles and contribute to achieving the “Zero Emissions” mission espoused by vehicle manufacturers and Knorr-Bremse alike.
E-mobility solutions: safe, reliable, quiet and energy-efficient
Knorr-Bremse wants to make e-mobility sustainable – by supplying safe, reliable systems
that support vehicle manufacturers’ electrification roadmaps while minimizing carbon, noise
and brake-dust emissions. Making rail and commercial vehicle operations safe and reliable is part of Knorr-Bremse’s DNA. Knorr-Bremse has the expertise to ensure that systems comply with the highest safety standards, whether supplying power (redundant Power Management System), braking, or recovering energy (Electric Vehicle Motion Control).
