Bosch is involved in many electromobility projects
Baden-Württemberg is one of four German “Schaufenster Elektromobilität” (electromobility showcases). In this context, Bosch is involved in many projects to research and develop the electromobile future. For example, LivingLab BW is studying electromobility in everyday life in more than 40 individual projects. Its aim is to test the technologies that are already available and to develop viable business models. The “Get eReady” project is examining how vehicle fleets can be operated economically. As part of this project, it is planned to have 750 hybrid and all-electric vehicles on the roads in the Stuttgart region by 2015. In addition, Bosch is an active member of the Cluster Elektromobilität Süd-West (electromobility cluster southwest).

The company is working on challenges of electromobility that go far beyond classic product business. It annual investments in this field come to roughly 400 million euros.
