【DE】Automechanika Innovation Award 2022 announced its winners – this year’s trends: sustainable and digital solutions

The coveted Innovation Awards were presented to the winners at the ceremony on the first day of the Automechanika Frankfurt trade fair. In addition to these eight awards, which were presented in categories such as E-Mobility, Workshop & Service Solutions and Data & Connectivity, a Green Award was given to the product judged to be especially sustainable.


The winners of the Innovation Awards were chosen from a total of 133 candidates. The products and solutions submitted were evaluated by an international panel of 14 experts. They examined various criteria, including the degree of innovation, cost effectiveness, user-friendliness, functionality, relevance to the aftermarket, safety and quality, as well as contributions to environmental protection and sustainability.


As Stephan Kurzawski, Senior Vice President of Messe Frankfurt, put it at the award ceremony: “Innovations are the focal point of Automechanika. Over the next few days, more than 2,800 exhibitors will be presenting their latest products and services – many of which are world firsts. In recent years, new products and smart solutions have been developed at a staggering rate. This once again highlights the wealth of innovation on offer in the international automotive aftermarket.”


This year’s award-winning products revealed a clear focus on digitalisation, new mobility and sustainability. Winners included smart solutions for workshops and automotive technology, including an app that allows spare parts to be found and ordered quickly and reliably, online-supported systems for damage diagnostics, and a Bluetooth colour scanner that can identify colours and use a datable to supply the correct formula for matching paint in a matter of seconds. A recovery system for damaged e-cars, a rapid charging station with a maximum output power of 240 kW, and a system for reducing braking torque were also among the award winners.


This was the third time that the panel presented the Green Award to honour the most ecologically sustainable innovation among the submitted products. This year’s Green Award went to GelKoh for ‘LiBa®Rescue’, a recovery system for e-cars that helps to conserve resources. This innovation also won the Innovation Award in the Workshop & Service Solutions category.


Companies from the automotive aftermarket were able to submit their innovations in the following categories: E-Mobility, Data & Connectivity, Workshop & Service Solutions, Parts & Technology Solutions, Body & Paint, Car Wash & Care, Accessories & Customizing, and Commercial Vehicles.


The winners and finalists will also be featured in a special area located in the new Innovation4Mobility showcase in Hall 3.0.
