From class leading hydrogen fuel cells through to ground-breaking electric superchargers, hybrid powertrains and automated eCall systems, a host of innovative, UK-developed technologies will be on display later this week at Japan’s largest and most important automotive technology event.
With vehicle manufacturers continuing to look for increasingly ingenious solutions to tomorrow’s transport challenges, the technologies on show will help them overcome these obstacles by creating lighter vehicles, reducing emissions, accelerating development times and slashing development costs.
“The UK Pavilion at this year’s JSAE will be the largest we have ever assembled and demonstrates the strength of the research, development and innovation taking place across the UK,” comments Ian Constance, CEO, Advanced Propulsion Centre. “The ongoing pursuit of low carbon propulsion technologies requires an environment where innovation and new-thinking thrive and we’ve successfully created such an ecosystem in the UK. The companies taking part at JSAE personify this ethos and spirit of innovation, and demonstrate why Britain remains a great place to do business.”
In total 21 companies will participate on the UK pavilion, the largest ever delegation amassed for an international event by the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC). Among the pioneering technologies on display will be:
In addition to the technologies on display, visitors to the congress will be able to hear technical presentations from 13 UK companies who are taking part of the UK automotive Forum covering a wide range of subjects such as the development of new 48V battery design, the development of a manufacturing process for large format solid state cells, how hydrogen fuel cells can integrated into heavy duty vehicles and how data driven decisions can support fleet and infrastructure operators in an uncertain world.
