The Auto Shanghai motor show takes place April 21-28 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC) in Shanghai, China. Rheinmetall AG will be on hand in Hall 1.2 at booth 1.2 5BJ152.

In addition to cast parts used in electrically powered vehicles, also on show will be components for battery cooling, for electric drive units, and pumps used in electromotors.
On display too is an electrical air conditioning compressor that serves among other things as a component in the air conditioning system of electrically powered vehicles.
