Carl F. W. Borgward quickly and automatically shifted gear

After the Second World War, it was the US automobile industry that led the way in comfort-related features. Carl F. W. Borgward kept a keen eye on developments across the Atlantic. In particular, he had a strong hunch that the automatic transmission would prove popular with German customers, just as it already had with US motorists. In 1956, he was able to try out a Citroen DS with semiautomatic transmission. His prophecy was perhaps a little too optimistic: “Within 20 years, two-thirds of all cars in Germany will be fitted with automatic transmission.” More ...

New Seating Technologies: The Future of Lightweight Engineering

Frankfurt, Germany – September 16, 2015. It’s a battle for every gram: by 2020, the CO2 emissions limit for new vehicles in the EU will be 95 grams per kilometer (152.9 g/mile), which amounts to around four liters of fuel consumption per 100 km (58.8 MPG). This target is to be achieved through both alternative drive systems and lighter vehicles. Even in hybrid and electric vehicles, every gram of weight saved helps conserve resources and increase range. As the global leader in automotive seating, Johnson Controls was quick to identify the task at hand, and has for years made lightweight construction a priority in its research and development. In Frankfurt, the company will be demonstrating how it intends to actively help shape the future of automotive seating. More ...

Ahead of the UN special summit: industrialized nations are at risk of missing the new Sustainable Development Goals

Berlin, September 8, 2015 – Most industrialized countries in the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) are not yet ready for the international community’s new sustainability pledge. Many are nowhere near achieving the global policy objectives that are to be adopted by the heads of state or government at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit this month. Indeed, there is the danger that the targets for many indicators will be missed entirely. The greatest deficits of the industrialized nations lie in their less-than-sustainable production and consumption behavior. In addition, in many cases their economic systems also exacerbate the trend toward social inequality.

This is the result of a comparative study of all 34 OECD states conducted by Germany’s Bertelsmann Foundation on the basis of 34 indicators for the 17 future Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2030. The study is the first one in the world to systematically investigate the present status of each of these countries, both individually and in comparison with one another. This snapshot additionally identifies countries that can serve as role models with regard to particular Sustainable Development Goals, while also pointing out where substantial deficits still exist. Thus the study provides a blueprint for the attainment of the SDGs in the next 15 years. More ...

Pioneering Innovations: Aerodynamics in Focus: BORGWARDs Experiments With Wind Tunnels and Woollen Threads

Aerodynamics is certainly one of the most complex issues the automotive industry has to deal with today. Still, in the 21st century, experts can use high-performance computers the size of refrigerators that spend days unravelling the mysteries of air flows. Carl F. W. BORGWARD, who became interested in airplanes, and later helicopters, at a very early age, realised back in the 1930s that aerodynamic principles could be applied to automobiles much in the same way they were used in aircraft construction. On the one hand, this would reduce fuel consumption. On the other, it would enable increases in top speed and acceleration to levels previously undreamed of. More ...
