Regensburg joint stand at the new IAA Mobility.
Munich/Regensburg, September 20th, 2021 – For the first time, the Mobility & Logistics cluster was represented at the International Motor Show in Munich from September 6th to 12th. The joint stand with the city of Regensburg and nine other co-exhibitors was visited by Bavaria’s Minister of the Interior Joachim Hermann, State Secretary Roland Weigert and Regensburg’s Lord Mayor Gertrud Maltz-Schwarzfischer, among others. An eye-catcher at the stand was Regensburg’s electric bus EMIL.
Regensburg was the first city in Bavaria to launch its own electric bus line in 2017, making it a pioneer in emission-free public transport. The Emil presented at the IAA Mobility serves member companies of the Regensburg E-Mobility Cluster (now Cluster Mobility & Logistics) as an innovation platform to develop and improve drive forms of the future. One of the companies involved is development service provider AVL, which integrated components for high-performance e-motors, power electronics and control software into the bus.
“The new IAA MOBILITY sees itself as a driving force for mobility solutions of the future, for people to experience and have their say,” said Alexander Rupprecht, managing director of R-Tech GmbH, which manages the cluster. “For us, it was thus the ideal platform to present our innovative projects with our members.” Maria Hirschberger, Mobility & Logistics Cluster adds, “Our members were able to make numerous contacts and initiate ideas for new projects at the IAA.”
During the course of the trade show, Bavaria’s Minister of the Interior Joachim Hermann, Saxony’s Digital Minister Ines Fröhlich, Development Minister Dr. Gerd Müller, and State Secretary Roland Weigert were also impressed by the innovative mobility concepts from Regensburg. On September 8th, Regensburg’s mayor Gertrud Maltz-Schwarzfischer also visited the joint stand for a Bavarian breakfast and learned about products and projects related to the Emil innovation bus from co-exhibitors and project partners AVL, Bertrandt, Stadtwerk Regensburg, TriOptoTec and OTH Regensburg. There was also a lively exchange with Bayern Innovativ, a subsidiary of LfA Förderbank Bayern, and the Holland High-Tech Mobility Pavilion.
