22-24 October 2013 Bad Nauheim, Germany
15th Global Car Body Benchmarking Conference
EuroCarBody 2013 - the review
From 22ndto 24th October, EuroCarBody 2013, the 15th Global Car Body Benchmarking Conference, again gathered over 540 car body engineers from 26 countries in Bad Nauheim, Germany, to discuss and evaluate the car bodies of 11 new series vehicles from the current model year, presented in detail by their OEM developers. The attendees also had the opportunity to physically inspect the body-in-whites as well as the corresponding complete vehicles on site.
Each of the car bodies presented was evaluated in the five technical categories
- A: Efficient development and construction concepts
- B: Effective material developments and applications
- C: Production efficiency
- D: Customer benefit conveyed by the bodywork
- E: Completeness and engineering orientation of the presentation
by the entire conference auditorium on the one hand and by a jury comprising the international OEM Advisory Board to the conference on the other. The winners of this year’s EuroCarBody Awards – the world’s highest accolade in car body engineering – were then determined by the ranking resulting from this combined evaluation.
