EAWD Congress 2017 - A look back
Under the motto "Revolution or Evolution", around 350 all-wheel specialists from automobile manufacturers, suppliers and universities met at the European All-Wheel Drive Congress in Graz and Spielberg in April 2017. Innovative all-wheel solutions, electric mobility and a look into the future of all-wheel drive were the main topics of the conference.
We spent two inspiring and varied days at two venues that could not have been more different.
The first day of the congress and the accompanying exhibition in the venerable Graz Congress as well as the evening event in the Old University of Graz offered the participants an excellent environment for professional exchange and networking.
On the second day, the entire congress took place on the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg. In addition to exciting lectures, the Ride & Drive sessions on the on and off-road track were a special highlight. Here, the all-wheel innovations in different vehicle types could be experienced and tested live. The stars of the test drives were the Magna Powertrain e1 eDrive Demonstrator, packed with the latest developments for electrification, as well as the Mercedes AMG Bolide or the Puch Pinzgauer.
We are already looking forward to our next Electrification & All-Wheel Drive Congress in May 2019.
Have a look at the impressions of two eventful days.
