Green energy, smart vehicles meet personal expectations
Sustainable mobility is taking off
Global population growth, urbanization and climate change are making us rethink mobility. Transportation must be environmentally friendly and safe, at the same time allowing people to mix and match the most convenient means of transportation at any time. Together, decarbonization and digitalization will prove to be the best solution to transforming the increasing amount of worldwide traffic and making mobility climate neutral.
Microelectronics based on energy-efficient, dependable semiconductors and system solutions help all vehicle types and transport infrastructures use less energy without making sacrifices. We at Infineon are already thinking about the mobility concepts of tomorrow today – facilitating green, smart, and personal mobility solutions at all levels. And we can do it! We have the technological excellence, the innovative power and the team spirit to break new ground and enable the seamless mobility experience people want.
The power of semiconductors
We enable solutions that promote the transformation towards green, smart and personal mobility across all means, including high-speed trains, autonomous and electric cars and trucks as well as electric vehicles such as e-bikes and cargo e-bikes. With 40 years of experience we shape mobility with dependable electronics.
Discover the impact of Infineon
We are accelerating the transition to green, smart and personal mobility as a thought leader and the number one provider of highly efficient power semiconductors for a wide-ranging application landscape.
Cars are the essence of mobility regardless of whether people live in rural or in urban areas. Now, 150 years after the invention of the combustion engine, decarbonization and digitalization are fundamentally transforming the car and how we use it.
While cars will stay on the road in urban areas that lack infrastructure, alternatives to ownership are on the rise. Sharing responds to the growing desire for greater sustainability and accommodates the increasing lack of space in our cities.
Think of personal mobility, that reflects our individual preferences. Light electric vehicles such as e-scooters allow users to move around according to their needs. Their small size is helpful to ease traffic congestion and parking problems.
Infineon is at the core of all types of vehicles and infrastructure systems. Almost any type of vehicle moving us is built on our technological excellence and innovation. From sensing the inside and outside to computing control signals and converting them into concrete actions, we bring together the essential building blocks to advance all types of private, public and commercial mobility.

How far will it go? Range anxiety deters many buyers considering an electric vehicle. To demonstrate the range of their electric cars, Volkswagen America organized the longest ever marathon to be held in a single country.
Road traffic is loud, putting people living and working in cities under enormous stress. To counter noise pollution, public transport operators are searching for ways to reduce the noise levels of their vehicles.
Green hydrogen has the potential to decarbonize public transport. To leverage this opportunity and deliver sustainable mobility choices to its citizens, Austria’s biggest bus operator is adding up to 40 hydrogen buses to its Carinthia fleet.
The Japanese system is advanced compared with other countries, with high-speed trains linking major cities, commuter trains and buses connecting urban areas, and sophisticated systems managing public transit within cities.
Israeli e-mobility startup Ree Automotive, headquartered in Tel Aviv, surprised the 2021 electric car market with an outright innovation.
The company developed a space-saving architecture for electric cars that is designed to give car designers more freedom to layout the vehicle's interior. The concept is based on the idea of housing all the components needed for motion, such as steering, brakes and the electric motor, in the wheel and wheel housing.
The completely flat platform is reminiscent of a skateboard in terms of shape and is made possible primarily by the integration of Infineon AURIX™ microcontrollers in REEcorner™ and REEcenter™ control units.
