The mission of STARTUP AUTOBAHN is to bring the world’s best start-ups to Stuttgart.
The program focuses on the enhancement of technologies to prepare for project maturity. Start-ups that have made a convincing presentation on "Selection Day" will work on pilot projects with company project teams. The start-ups also receive special coaching from mentors and partner companies for three months, including focus weeks and monthly network meetings. During this time, the start-ups will have access to the coworking space and the hardware lab in Arena2036. They also get access to the Plug and Play global network. The aim is to inspire potential investors at the final Expo Day. Initial funding depends on the start-up’s degree of maturity.
One example of the successful cooperation between start-ups and companies is the open-innovation platform developed together with the start-up HighMobility – the
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO2 emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
