AVERE at Eurobike 2015

For the second time, AVERE LEV-TF participates at the Eurobike Show, which takes place from 26 till 28 August in Friedrichshafen (D).

AVERE has a booth on the first floor of the West Entrance (number FW-OG103). The booth is meant to be a tranquil place where members and other visitors can escape for a while from the hectic show for a meeting or for a cup of coffee.

AVERE LEV-TF is sharing the booth with the Light Electric Vehicle Association (LEVA).

On Thursday 27 August as of 12.30 p.m. in meeting room Schweiz (Foyer West), AVERE will be welcoming LEV-TF members, members of the press as well as anybody  interested in the AVERE LEV-TF for an information meeting.

Over a light lunch, participants will be informed on the activities of the AVERE light electric vehicle task force. They will learn more about, among other things, the new type-approval procedure for electric bicycles. Belgian PHD student Bram Rotthier will explain his research on fast pedelecs and will clarify further activities of his university KUL (B), in the field of electric bicycles.

EU-Live project: modular solutions for Efficient Urban Light Vehicles

A European consortium of leading automakers, suppliers and research institutions is developing a comprehensive solution to the next generation of electrified, cost-efficient and energy-efficient light vehicles.

EU-LIVE (Efficient Urban Light Vehicles) stands out due to its modular development approach which is intended as an economic and simple solution for realizing a wide range of different powertrains, bodies and designs. Unprecedented in the field of light vehicles, the project focuses on the consistent modularity of fully and partly electrified powertrains including wheel hub motors as well as vehicle bodies for various applications.

The EU-LIVE project is coordinated by the Graz-based VIRTUAL VEHICLE Research Center and brings together the know-how of twelve partners from six countries, including two major European automakers (PSA Peugeot Citroën, Peugeot Scooters) as well as numerous key suppliers and prestigious research institutions.
