AVL opens new technology center in Stuttgart

Testing firm AVL has opened a new technology center near Stuttgart in Germany following 15 months of construction.

The new center features nine test beds for the development and testing of engines, powertrains and vehicles. A modular design leaves potential for 16 more test beds.

“By opening this center, we have established a further important milestone in the industrial location of Germany.”
