Core Expertise

We offer an unsurpassed breadth and depth of services that undergo continuous enhancement day by day. We are world-class experts not just in the individual disciplines.

Special quality often emerges in perfect interaction between the individual core competencies and special disciplines offered like no other by IAV as full-service, one-stop-shop provider. Time and again, this lets us deal successfully with even the most difficult problems and large-scale projects. Our workforce of more than 8,000 employees has recourse to IAV’s own test facilities, tools and labs that are tailor-made for the specific task and thus only available in our company. We also have another unique selling point in our engineering methods where we tap into the potential of AI and big data as well as virtualization and automation. But all that is nothing without the personal contact to our experts. We look forward to receiving your enquiries.

Powertrain Development

By 2050, the plan is for mobility to become carbon-neutral. To achieve this goal, the course must be set here and now. IAV is not only in full command of all drive systems but also understands the entire vehicle. The result are optimum technical solutions that are also sustainable.

Mobility needs to become more sustainable and play a greater part in protecting our climate. IAV has been working on electric and hybrid drive systems for over 20 years. We always keep a clear focus on the overall "e-mobility" system from the vehicle and charging infrastructure to integration into the smart power grid. With this in mind, we are developing technical solutions and are actively involved in defining new standards.

AI & Big Data

Data volumes in vehicles have been growing for years, and automated driving will increase them further. This is why IAV uses big data methods and artificial intelligence in development work, for fleet analysis, for new driving functions and in after-sales. We have access to a network of internal experts and renowned cooperation partners.
