Sustainable mobility is one of the grand societal challenges and thus a key topic for the automotive industry, which believes in the on-going demand for individual mobility. In order to meet increasingly strict emission targets and growing traffic in urban areas, electro mobility is a promising way. The aim of the ELVA project was to bring in line technology options and customer expectations for the third generation of electric vehicles. We developed innovative vehicle architectures that are fully exploiting the freedoms in design resulting from the electric drivetrain. After two and a half years, the project has ended in May 2013.
