E-Mobility has arrived in many countries. It is estimated that nearly 11 million e-cars were already on the world`s roads in 2020. And the trend is steeply upwards. It seems that the great era of e-mobility is beginning. For DEKRA, e-mobility is a mission with a perspective: to be sustainable, environmentally friendly, and, above all, safe. The current issue of DEKRA solutions therefore looks at the most important issues surrounding e-mobility.

Driving requires energy – and that applies to electric cars just as much as it does to combustion engines. However, different rules apply at the electric charging station than at the diesel or gasoline pump. What does “filling up” actually mean with regards to an electric car? Does it use alternating current or direct current? And when is the best time to pull the plug? We asked DEKRA experts.

Range is the holy grail of electromobility. It determines whether an electric car is perceived as a fully-fledged vehicle. In the competition for best energy source, the lithium-ion battery currently holds the best cards. Speaking in favor of this battery type is its good ratio between weight and range.


Electric Car: Efficient under the Hood

If it were just a matter of aesthetics, an e-motor could hardly compete against the elegance of a six-cylinder. Since it’s basically comprised of compact housing, magnets, copper wire, and a shaft – the potential for a grand spectacle is rather limited. E-motors have to impress with their inner values. And they have plenty of those.


Electric Car: Mission with Good Prospects

In spring, it’s time for a thorough car wash. This requires the right care products, cleaning equipment, and a good washing area. However, it’s not a good idea to tackle the paintwork using household remedies. We asked DEKRA expert Thilo Kunst how to successfully spring clean a car.


Clean Air for the World

17.03.2021 Clean Air Kommentare geschlossen

Breathing clean air can’t be taken for granted. In many parts of the world, people breathe polluted air. Our health is at stake if, for example, particulate matter or nitrogen dioxide enters our lungs. A need for action exists in many places.
