A network for future innovations

Electric drives are tested under real conditions on the electric motor test bench in Fellbach/Germany.

Operational research and development work is currently driven forward at 11 major development locations around the world as well as numerous regional competence centers.

They are located directly in the globally strategic markets. Their main tasks relate to core topics such as fuel efficiency, clean air for emissions and in the cabin, and durability. Solutions are also found for local customers that are tailored to the specific requirements of the market. Exchange takes place regularly between the MAHLE development locations. New research results and findings are discussed jointly and efficient technology transfer is ensured for internal projects.

MAHLE also cooperates with numerous external research associations, societies, and universities around the world.

The transfer of knowledge between industry and science, as well as research activities that extend beyond the borders of the group help to unlock additional potential for developing more efficient vehicle technologies. MAHLE concentrates on the optimization of not only passenger cars but also heavy-duty commercial vehicles and large engines.
