Involving our customers from the start
The best way to better understand our product and technologies is to see our latest automotive innovations in action. At Ride & Drive events, customers test drive our latest technologies on a private track, using specially equipped demo vehicles. This is how we involve automakers from the start, showcasing our research and development work at the pre-project stage.
