High-Tech for the Global Market

Mag. Gerlinde Gahleitner

Whether front wheel drive, the first Porsche vehicle off the assembly line or alternative drive systems, Austria's history as a highly qualified driving force behind automotive developments and innovative mobility concepts is long. In its role as an automotive powerhouse, the Alpine Republic features a high level of attractiveness for international automotive companies thanks to its top-notch quality as a business location and optimally trained skilled employees.

The inventiveness of the Austrian automobile sector

800 startups and companies, including university and non-university research facilities, research clusters and networks, are making decisive contributions in Austria to the mobility of the future. Europe’s most diverse testing environment for autonomous driving, the world’s lightest and most efficient high-performance batteries for electromobility and the promotion of the use of artificial intelligence are among the focal points in Austria in the field of mobility. More than 1,600 patents were registered in the automotive sector in the period 2011 – 2015. Because of their ingenuity and productivity, Austria’s automotive component suppliers have gained reputation as reliable partners. Hardly any vehicles in the world today leave the assembly lines without components “Made in Austria”.
