Electric car visits Continental on its round-the-world trip

The first round-the-world trip with an electric car is coming to a successful end: After 30,000 km, Nina and Hjalte Tin from Denmark are soon to reach their destination – the Danish capital of Copenhagen. Their car, an electrically powered Nissan Quasquai, was fitted with Continental tires for the round-the-world trip. As a lower rolling resistance is particularly important for cars with an electric drive – due to the lower rolling resistance increasing the range – the car was fitted with the ContiPremiumContact 2 tires.

RESCAR 2.0 Enhances the Robustness of Electronic Automotive Components

Whether in the powertrain, in central control units or in body and convenience electronics – there is a constant increase in the proportion of electronic components used in the car. This trend is accompanied by growing complexity of the systems installed, meaning that designers are forever faced with new challenges in the fine tuning. Six partners from all levels of the development chain have now joined forces in a quest to come up with overarching solutions. The members of the RESCAR 2.0 research project (RESCAR being the German acronym for the robust design of new electronic components for applications in the field of electromobility) seek to enhance the reliability and robustness of electronic automotive components. The project is receiving support from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) to the tune of approximately Euro 6.5 million as part of the funding program known as “STROM” (German acronym signifying key technologies for electromobility). Together with the partners, the joint research investment volume is planned at about Euro 13.3 million over the coming three years.
