7 Impressions from IAA Transportation

By Julius

5th October 2022

There’s a first time for everything – also for participating at IAA Transportation in Hanover. At the world's most important exhibition for commercial vehicles, we presented various solar solutions that further advance our mission of ‘solar on every vehicle.’

Alongside the debut of the new Solar Bus Kit, we exhibited four semi-trailers already equipped with our solar technology in collaboration with our partners CHEREAU, Kögel, Mitsubishi and Winglinger.

We and our partners vividly demonstrated at IAA Transportation the ways in which solar technology can revolutionize the transportation of tomorrow. We can save fuel, reduce costs and, above all, cut CO2 emissions. 

Naturally, we wanted to pass on some impressions to you, so we've put together a small selection.

We were able to achieve about 90 % of our goal of building a trade show booth that generates no waste. This means we can reuse almost everything we set up at the show for our own showroom, office or elsewhere.
