German engineering giant Bosch will strengthen its electromobility R&D and production activities in Hungary. “Our goal is to make Budapest a center in central and eastern Europe for the development of electric and hybrid drivetrains as well other technical solutions,” the top Bosch official in Hungary, István Szászi points out.
As reported by the Hungarian state news agency MTI, the Bosch group already produces electric drivetrains and e-mobility parts at three plants in NE Hungary, in Miskolc, Maklár and Hatvan. It employs about 3,000 people in Budapest working on future automotive industry technologies, including several hundred engineers tasked with electromobility developments.
Bosch expects that a new campus it is building in Hungary will open its doors in the second half of 2022. It is expected to undertake research and development tasks in electromobility and autonomous vehicles.
In Hungary, Bosch continues its development in active cooperation with industry and academia, closely linking applied research in universities and industrial development. In 2021, the Group worked on several important development projects related to electromobility. A joint project between Robert Bosch Energy and Body Systems Ltd. in Miskolc and the University of Miskolc has resulted in a new manufacturing process and component that represents a major step forward in the creation of the vehicles of the future, they said.
In addition to its R&D activities, the company's automotive site in Miskolc is also an important production center for Bosch's electromobility efforts. New-generation products from Robert Bosch Energy and Body Systems Ltd., such as the brake assist motor and the traction stabilizer, are essential components for hybrid and electrically powered vehicles. In addition to automotive components, another important product of the factory is the electric drive for eBikes, for which the batteries are developed and manufactured by Robert Bosch Power Tool Ltd.
