IAA Mobility 2023 Showcases Cutting-Edge EV Technologies

Automakers from across the world showcased innovative and cutting-edge electric vehicle technologies during the recently concluded IAA Mobility 2023 in Munich. The largest mobility festival in the world, IAA Mobility 2023 ran Sept. 5–10, 2023, and attracted multitudes of carmakers from nations such as Germany and China.

Rather than exhibit their efforts at transforming existing vehicle lines into electric vehicles, carmakers displayed next-generation technologies for EVs of the future. This included extensive display screens, augmented reality, 3D printing capabilities for modern EVs for urban regions and novel types of steering wheels.

Some of the next-gen electric cars showcased at the festival featured innovative interior designs that provided drivers and passengers with a lot more room while maximizing comfort and visual appeal. As the electric vehicle age draws nearer, the basic criteria for vehicles may evolve from simply transmission type, performance and aesthetics to encompass other factors.

High-tech display screens may be one such factor. Although automakers have been equipping vehicles with display screens in recent years, they often have low-quality graphics and can be difficult to use. During the recent mobility festival, however, automakers exhibited EVs that projected driving information in extended displays.

BMW’s Vision Neue Klasse projects entertainment and driving information onto the windshield while the Audi Q6 e-tron uses augmented reality to create a display for the driver on the front windshield. The AR technology hones in on the driver’s eye and projects information along the eye’s focus, creating the illusion of high-quality graphics floating roughly 200 meters ahead of the driver.

Mercedez Benz’s CLA Class concept leverages real-time graphics, augmented reality and high-quality screens to provide drivers with the means to easily access information they need. Other electric cars at the festival also had display features such as door-to-door display screens and showcased a general departure from the manual displays of old.

Artificial intelligence (AI) also made a major appearance at the festival as car brands combined AI and in-house software to create borderline sentient voice assistants. The voice assistants can learn the driver’s routines and behaviors and eventually start carrying out certain actions on behalf of the driver. For example, the assistants can decide the best path to take to get home or remind drivers to carry out actions such as opening windows as soon as they enter their vehicles during hot seasons.

Some carmakers also leveraged 3D printing technology to create lighter EVs with higher structural performance. The CUPRA Dark Rebel was developed using 3D printing, with engineers using the technology to mold metal to the EV’s central cabin spine and cover the roomy seats and headrests with 3D knitting fabric. The EV also featured a next-generation steering wheel with crescent-shaped handles adjacent to a display projecting the CUPRA Dark Rebel’s speed.

Electric cars have been at the forefront of innovation in the automobile industry, and automakers are just getting started. As the industry matures, more of these innovative EV technologies will be available to regular drivers.

While the glitzy in-car technologies such as futuristic display screens may have captured people’s attention at the IAA Mobility 2023 event, it is likely that the decisive impact on EV adoption could come from the work being done by companies such as QuantumScape Corp. (NYSE: QS) to revolutionize battery chemistry to address EV range anxiety once and for all.
