AMI 2014 - Congress


The Vdik congress contributes to an informed discussion both in politics and among the public. It addresses automobile manufacturers and importers, workshops, people responsible for vehicle drive technologies at different ministries and institutions and interested trade fair visitors, students studying the subject, and members of the press.


The intriguing question of what will drive us tomorrow still remains unanswered. We cannot expect to see the development of a universal automotive drive. A number of different drive configurations will hit the market over the next decade to meet a variety of specific mobility requirements. These new products will range from optimized internal combustion engines that use alternative fuels and different hybrid systems to purely electric engines and the fuel cell. Electric mobility is being heavily discussed by the public. It remains to be seen whether and when electric mobility will be able to hold its own against other alternative drive systems.

The VDIK congress „Alternative Propulsion“ will focus on the following topics:

  • Electric mobility, also in consideration of light-weight design
  • Fuel cells and hybrids with presentation of the different hybrid concepts
  • Alternative fuels with an assessment of the potential of using natural gas (CNG, LNG) and liquid gas (LPG) in passenger cars and heavy-duty commercial vehicles

Renowned experts from the worlds of politics and industry will present the drive configurations of the future. The guest speakers will also attend a round table to conclude the congress, where they will discuss various topics with congress participants.
