Munich in September: More than 130 years after the invention of the combustion engine the course is now set for future drive concepts: According to a current study, one out of ten newly sold vehicles will be equipped with an electric or hybrid drive by 2020. Until then around eight million electric and hybrid vehicles will be found on European roads and approximately 1.5 million on German roads. For manufacturers, the electric mobility trend is turning into a several billion dollar market. In Germany alone, cumulated sales of electric vehicles will increase from 20 to 74 billion Euros according to estimates. Energy providers will also benefit considerably from this promising development.

According to Martin Zeil, Bavarian State Minister for Economy, Infrastructure, Transport and Technology, "The automotive, electric and mechanical engineering industries are pillars of the Bavarian economy. The Federal Government and the Free State of Bavaria have therefore implemented a number of programs to acquire key competence in electric mobility. One important step to test the marketability of electrically driven vehicles is, for example, the promotion of a model region; a project that has already been launched in Munich and in the Allgaeu region. To speed up developments in electric mobility, the State Government will again grant the eCarTec Award 2011, the Bavarian state prize for electric mobility. The participants at this competition will go up against other international competitors and can use this award as an opportunity to present themselves to potential clients. Moreover, by competing for the eCarTec Award, participants can highlight their innovative competence, thus supporting the market position of their products and technologies."

Innovative ideas have driven the 60 entries for the eCarTec Award 2011. The fact that numerous international participants have contributed their ideas is proof of the great interest in the competition, which was held for the second time. On 12 September 2011, a high-ranking jury selected the most interesting entries and nominated three submissions per category.

About eCarTec
The leading trade fair for electric mobility provides an excellent opportunity to acquaint yourself in detail with the cross-sectional project of e-mobility. The trade fair will take place from 18 to 20 October, 2011 at the New Munich Trade Fair Center and will present electric vehicles, storage technology, drive and engine technology. It also covers topics of energy, infrastructure and financing. An additional training area where end consumers can test the latest electric vehicles and familiarize themselves with this technology is also available. This trade fair focuses on developers, construction engineers, designers, managers, traders, car fleet managers, private car buyers and decision makers from politics and public authorities. A specialist conference on electric mobility will round off the event. The trade fair for material applications, MATERIALICA – 14th international trade fair for material applications, surfaces and product engineering – will take place alongside eCarTec as well as sMove360° – 1st international trade fair for smart car communications. The large number of representatives from the automotive industry is sure to promote a synergy effect between both trade fairs. MATERIALICA considers itself a link between the engineering and supply industry.
