From September 21st to 24th, we concluded our trade fair season for this year at NUFAM in Karlsruhe. Here, we not only showcased our powertrain but also introduced our concept vehicle, a converted 3.5.ton Mercedes Sprinter. 

As NUFAM is a commercial vehicle trade fair, the Sprinter particularly captured the attention of visitors, allowing us to engage in discussions with a wide range of attendees, including both private individuals and businesses. This helped raise awareness for hydrogen transport vehicles. 

We used NUFAM 2023 in Karlsruhe as an opportunity to present our concept vehicle for the first time and to further raise awareness about hydrogen in transportation, even among end consumers.

IAA Mobility 2023


From September 3rd to 8th, we exhibited our powertrain at the IAA Mobility in Munich. The trade fair provided us with the opportunity to establish crucial contacts and engage in discussions with potential suppliers and customers.  

Furthermore, the fair was well-attended, particularly by industry professionals, and it also drew important political figures such as Anna Lena Baerbock, Markus Söder and Chancellor Olaf Scholz.  

We were able to hold numerous conversations with various investment initiatives, including those in the United States, Canada and Mexico, to gather information on potential expansion opportunities. 

One of our personal highlights was the visit from Minister Daniela Schmitt, who, on behalf of our sponsoring partner, the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, came to our booth to witness our progress and discuss potential future hydrogen projects in Rhineland-Palatinate. 

In summary, this years IAA Mobility in Munich was an exiting and successful experience for us, and we look forward to the possibility of exhibiting at the IAA Transportation in Hannover next year.
