DEUTZ AG is inviting customers, investors, the media and representatives from politics to an exclusive ELECTRIP week in Cologne from 15 to 21 September. Guests can experience the evolution of fully electric and hybrid drive systems on land and on water at the new DEUTZ Innovation Centre and the Rheinauhafen harbour in Cologne. Here, the fully functioning prototypes will showcase DEUTZ’s electric drive systems expertise in live demonstrations.

The Company has taken an important step with its E-DEUTZ strategy and is complementing its low-emission combustion engines with electric and hybrid drive systems. The acquisition of Torqeedo GmbH, a systems solutions specialist and world leader in integrated electric and hybrid motors for boats, in September 2017 has provided the initial spark for the electrification of DEUTZ’s product portfolio. Torqeedo’s extensive know-how forms the basis for future developments in DEUTZ’s core off-highway business. The ELECTRIP project delivers visuals, information and an experience that bring all this to life, while the videos at showcase the evolution of the E-DEUTZ strategy.

The week of events offers direct insights into the future of DEUTZ AG. Michael Wellenzohn, member of the DEUTZ AG Board of Management responsible for Sales, Service & Marketing: “We are taking our customers, investors and the media on an exciting trip – an ELECTRIP. In September, we will be offering live action on land and on water in Cologne under the banner ‘Get electrified!’. We are looking forward to presenting our progress in the electrification of our off-highway business at this major event.”

At the 2018 DEUTZ Capital Markets Day on 18 September, DEUTZ AG will provide analysts and investors with an update on the corporate strategy and specific projects. Journalists from around the world will receive the latest information and news first-hand at the 2018 DEUTZ Media Day on 19 September.
