AVL Renames North American Division to Reflect Mobility Leadership

Newly named AVL Mobility Technologies, Inc. to continue driving development from the virtual to real world.


Plymouth, MI, February 1, 2022: AVL, the world's largest independent company for development, simulation, and testing in the automotive industry and beyond, has reconfirmed its leadership in the mobility space with a division renaming. Going forward, the company’s North American Powertrain Engineering division will be known as “AVL Mobility Technologies, Inc.”

“As a company, we have moved well past traditional powertrains and now our name reflects our strength in new technologies,” said Stephan Tarnutzer, President of AVL Mobility Technologies, Inc. “At AVL, we create a better world by driving the trends of tomorrow through our technology leadership in sustainable mobility solutions.” The division renaming also kicks off an initiative for the company to bring further awareness to the shift in mobility trends.

As evidenced by its “Reimagining Motion” theme at CES earlier this year, AVL is highlighting the company’s pioneering spirit and commitment to technology leadership in the mobility space. Day in and day out, the AVL’s 11,000+ employees worldwide are forging new ideas, creating exciting breakthroughs, and providing solutions for e-mobility, fuel cell, battery, ADAS/AD, data intelligence, and embedded systems for all types of vehicles.

AVL continues to lead the way with ADAS/AD technologies including the AVL Ajunic® compute platform, AVL DRIVINGCUBE™ vehicle-in-the-loop system, and Big Data and Analytics Platform. Additional products like the AVL Flexible Energy Storage System, High Voltage Junction Box, and comprehensive scenario-based and virtual validation tools have helped redefine and elevate customers’ goals. These technologies serve as the backbone of many projects and partnerships AVL has formed with leading mobility companies. With its rich history of inventions and patents, AVL has truly been “Reimagining Motion” since 1948.
