Electromobility is a research focus of Bochum University of Applied Sciences. Through the Institute for Electromobility, the university has

positioned itself as a competent contact for research and development on the topic of electromobility. Our activities focus on the development, construction and testing of electric vehicles and components as well as sustainable, digital and networked mobility and energy solutions.

The vehicles designed and manufactured at the institute in research and industrial projects serve a wide range of vehicle classes and

application scenarios. For example, in addition to solar-powered racing vehicles (SolarCar project), an electric quad (Karo), a small electric transporter with wheel hub drive (BOmobil) and an electric trailer for inner-city freight transport (ZemiSec) have already been developed. The focus of development is on the design and construction of the electric drive train and component development.
