Our thinking and our actions are centered on personal and connected mobility
… as such mobility means freedom and self-determination. We intend to create scope, with a product that puts the focus on the human being and the human experience: for a new form of locomotion and means of transportation that not only feels good and is fun, but is emission-free and contemporary as well. In pursuing these objectives, we believe in a mix of technology and design that has been carefully thought out in every single detail.
We rethink and change mobility to make the cities and streets of tomorrow a tangible experience.
We break ground and bridge gaps: as a source of creative impulse and a trailblazer on the road toward a digitally networked world. In the pursuit of this endeavor, we rely on the effect that is inherent in any movement – a personal as well as a collective one – and the power that results from taking a stance. These are the principles to which we are committed in designing our products.
How everything began.

The global automotive and industrial supplier makes a decisive contribution to mobility of tomorrow with its numerous innovations. As a pioneer in the field of electric mobility Schaeffler presented the Bio‑Hybrid vehicle category in 2016 as a vision for personal transportation in urban areas. This vision is now becoming reality. Schaeffler Bio‑Hybrid GmbH has the mission to develop the Bio‑Hybrid to production level and to launch the vehicle on the market. In pursuing this objective, the company operates with the flexibility of a startup while having access to the entire technical expertise of the Schaeffler Group.
