1. Learn from your peers at IFMI

2. Test the cars you'll be driving tomorrow

Once you go electric, you don't go back. It's a saying most EV drivers agree on, but the challenge is to get people behind the wheel of an electric car...

5. Meet start-ups before they hit the big time

The Smart Mobility Area is a part of the Fleet Europe Village dedicated to new and innovative mobility solutions and services.
