The City of Karlsruhe and the Regierungspräsidum of Karlsruhe support the arrival of electric vehicles. The Pôle Véhicule du Futur, automobile cluster of Alsace and Franche-Comté, works closely with Automotive Engineering Network (AEN). Indeed, the Upper Rhine (France-Germany-Switzerland) is a strategic area because of the weight of the automotive industry. The actors of tomorrow's mobility in these countries meet regularly in order to identify opportunities to build partnerships and collaborative projects. The announcement by Mr Sarkozy and
Ms Merkel of the first cross-border demonstration project on a global scale in the region between Strasbourg and Stuttgart / Mannheim / Karlsruhe around the electric vehicle demonstrates the potential of the project "e-mobility". This event is an opportunity to take stock of the projects underway.
