Our lightweighting concepts help to reduce the overall weight of vehicles. As a result, vehicles powered by diesel or gasoline engines consume less fuel and emit less CO2 , while electric trucks and cars benefit from an extended range. Developing cutting-edge battery and fuel cell technology as well as electric drive units, we were among the frontrunners when it came to positioning ourselves as a specialist in the field of e-mobility.

At the same time, we are committed to evolving our sealing technology for a wide range of applications. Our shielding systems are designed to ensure high-end temperature and acoustics management throughout the vehicle. Dynamic precision parts developed by ElringKlinger can be used in all types of drive system.

Additionally, the Group's portfolio includes engineering services, tooling technology, and products made of high-performance plastics, which are also marketed to industries beyond the automotive sector. Battery and fuel cell systems engineered by ElringKlinger are also used in non-automotive applications.
