Engineers from Jalisco and Querétaro develop vehicles of the future 


More than 2,400 engineers, in the three Research and Development centers that the German Continental has in Mexico, develop the new technologies for the mobility of the future. 

 By 2030, most fleets in developed countries will be electric vehicles, and in the next 10 years, by 2033, we may see “mass adoption of fully autonomous vehicles”; that is, those who will move without a driver. 

This was stated by the director of the Research and Development Centers in Guadalajara, of the German company Continental, Edú López San Vicente, noting that a high percentage of new mobility technologies are developed by engineers from Jalisco. 

Within the framework of the XXVIII Congress of the High Technology Industry that is taking place in this city, the Continental executive stressed, however, that in Mexico the adoption of these technologies requires, in addition to investment, the development of public policies aimed at implementing the new mobility models. 

“In Mexico we could begin to see the massive adoption of electrification as new vehicles pass a certain time of life, and begin to be sold in the second-hand market,” explained López San Vicente. 

Interviewed after his conference on “Mobility of the future, megatrends, technologies and challenges”, the Continental executive highlighted that the three Research and Development Centers that this company has in Mexico (two in Jalisco and one in Querétaro), are specifically focused on the subject of mobility. 

“We have more than 2,400 engineers working hard on technology solutions not only for the North American region but also globally. These engineers are innovating every day and are creating solutions for clients, in this case the assemblers, to put all this technology into practice”, he pointed out.
