19th Global Car Body Benchmarking Conference

 

EuroCarBody 2017



From 17 to 19 October, EuroCarBody 2017, 19th Global Car Body Benchmarking Conference, gathered over 550 car body engineers from all over the world in Bad Nauheim, Germany, to discuss and evaluate the car bodies of new series vehicles, presented in detail by their OEM developers. Further to the technical presentations, all attendees had the opportunity to inspect the car bodies as well as the corresponding complete vehicles on site.

For the first time this year, the car bodies presented took part in one of two separate competitions, namely for the "EuroCarBody Award – Volume Segment", comprising car bodies that were developed for vehicles in a predominantly cost-oriented, volume-production segment, and for the "EuroCarBody Award – Premium Segment", comprising car bodies developed for predominantly technology-oriented premium vehicles. In both competitions, the first- and second-ranking car bodies were honoured with EuroCarBody Awards.

After their presentation, the car bodies were evaluated in four technical categories as well as in the quality of the presentation by the entire conference auditorium and by a jury comprising the international OEM Advisory Board to the conference. The winners of this year’s EuroCarBody Awards – the world’s highest accolade in car body engineering, annually awarded during this conference since 2002 – were determined by the ranking resulting from this evaluation.
