    This year` gala edition of the leading driving event for sustainable mobility in Germany was invited to start directly from Frankfurt Motorshow for the 1 st time. So 45 most innovative vehicles with almost 100 international participants - incl. multiple CEO`s - joined at 13.09.23013 for their journey along Bertha Benz ` traces ! It became another huge succes without any incidents or technical troubles despite rainy conditions on saturday morning and the various prototypes participating.

    Highlights were the Rimac One, Protoscar Lampo 3, Suncar - Evora Hybrid from ETH Zürich, but also Mahle` Audi A1 RE ( 45g Co2 /100 km ), the Twike XP4 and the biiista boys from Austria. Everywhere the e-bikers showed up they became the epicenter of interest.
    And all participants were very enthousiastic about the visit of the Dr. Carl Benz museum, where 125 years automobile development is displayed LIVE with real objects like the genuine Patent Motor Car No. 3. It is the world oldest car in original condition !
    But also the rest of the programm offered more than enough content, variation and time for valuable discussions and acquisition of new contacts. And of course the laps on the Hockenheimring were an electrifying experience again for all, especially since the track was quite slippery and the safety car ´speed was not that slow .....

    This video says more than 1000 words, so have a look at three days in 12 minutes :

    In 2014 Bertha Benz Challenge will start again Frankfurt , then from Automechanika trade fair, which will have a dedicated hall for e-mobility for the 1st time. Ideas to enhance the event further are already being discussed, more info will be released in near future !

    Of course we look forward to welcome more participants from abroad again next year ! All cars with valid license and insurance for german public roads, thus also prototypes, can be registered.

    The Countdown is running.....

    Tomorrow the 4th Automobilclub von Deutschland Bertha Benz Challenge will start in Frankfurt. In the spirit of Bertha Benz all participating innovative cars, partly prototypes (!), will be driving along the world` oldest automobile road, the Bertha Benz Memorial Route. More about this unique route you ll find here :

    Bertha Benz Memorial Route


    With 194 Km it is no challenge to a Model S, but it can become quite challenging if you also drive the laps on the Hockenheimring racecircuit ! Here a nice impression of last year from our swiss competitor, Protoscar, with their Lampo3 :

    More information can be found on the AvD Bertha Benz Challenge website, which (sorry) still lacks an UK text:

    The 4th AvD Bertha Benz Challenge became another succesfull e-mobility promotour in Germany. At the Automechanika Messe in Frankfurt the newest vehicles, such as Tesla Model S, Nissan NV- 200 e and BMW i3, attracted a huge interest and lot of interesting chats were held continuiously with a growing number of visitors. Also the Autobild readers challenge was a great succes

    Partner Metropolregion created a nice video, 3 days in 15 minutes:

    Next year again, with new ideas, new vehicles and of course new participants.


    Stay charged !
