Comprehensive know-how

Piemonte’s automotive & transportation production comprises the entire supply chain from the upstream phases to the final products, offering business and know-how from the concept of the
vehicle till its delivery: project planning, prototyping, styling, robotics and automation, components and mass production, industrialisation of the product and driving test.

The new challenges of the sector

Companies are indeed developing more and more distinctive technologies and solutions in the fields of electrification, connectivity, autonomous driving, sustainable and sharing mobility, Big Data and software-designed vehicles, projecting the whole territory towards new challenges and new consumer markets.

It is possible to find in Piemonte the necessary know-how for electric vehicle development, integration, production and all the solutions and services needed for full electrical mobility, including energy storage and distribution.

In addition Piemonte companies are working on innovative smart mobility concepts integrating vehicles and infrastructure through the application of advanced digital technology.

When dealing with mobility experimentation, Torino offers exceptional possibilities. Torino is in fact one of the first cities in Italy allowing the testing of connected and autonomous vehicles on its public roads and not only in areas closed to traffic.  The city offers, at simplified conditions, 35 kms of dedicated roads and telematics infrastructures for the testing of innovative solutions for urban living in real contexts.
