eCarTec Paris 2012 is getting prominent support:

Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, Minister for Ecology, Sustainable Development, Transport and Housing


Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, French minister for Ecology, Sustainable Development, Transport and Housing will become the patron of eCarTec Paris 2012, together with her colleague Eric Besson, Minister of Industry, Energy and Digital Economics.


After two successful years, eCarTec Paris is expanding its position as an international trade fair for electric mobility with a corresponding conference. For the first time, the trade fair will take place at Porte de Versailles, April 3 to 5, 2012. A total of 6,000 square meters of exhibition space will be available to corporations for the presentation of innovations and visions for the future of electric mobility to a large audience.


Trade fair focus and eCarLiveDrive

The trade fair focuses on electric vehicles, storage technologies, energy and infrastructure, drive and engine technology, engineering, supply, and finance. Experts from the fields of economy, science, and politics will talk about the current developments and fields of applications for electric mobility at the 3rd international eCarTec Paris conference, which will take place alongside the trade fair. Visitors to eCarTec Paris can also test-drive electric vehicles at eCarLiveDrive, which is the trade fair’s own test track.


"Electric mobility is on the rise. France and Germany are the leading countries in the race for the best position on the market. With our trade fair we would like to prove that future mobility is not limited and offers a flexibility comparable to today's technology", says Robert Metzger, Managing Director at MunichExpo GmbH and organizer of eCarTec in Paris and Munich. Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet and Eric Besson will now become patrons of eCarTec Paris. "We are very happy about this prominent support. This will ensure that the topic receives the attention in Paris it really deserves".


"The prevalence of electric cars is a huge economic and ecological chance for France. We have already taken first steps towards the development of electric vehicles, several others will follow. This, however, requires the cooperation of all players such as construction engineers, suppliers, installers, and local authorities. These target groups will meet at eCarTec Paris 2012 for an exchange and discussion. I am proud to be the patron of this trade fair", says Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, Minister for Ecology, Sustainable Development, Transport and Housing.


"With electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles, a new generation of cars is hitting the markets. And even now it has become clear that the government has achieved its industrial, technological and economic goals", adds Eric Besson, Minister of Industry, Energy and Digital Economics. "The French car manufacturers will benefit from this revolution. Future investments and the car allowance rebate system will also contribute to this successful approach. eCarTec Paris is a must for everyone interested in the topic of electric mobility. I am delighted to become the patron of this top event".
