Felix von Borck

CO-FOUNDER

Felix von Borck has been developing battery/electric drive solutions since working in the university-based research association Akasol e.V. in 1993, which he transformed into an independent development centre for forward-looking forms of vehicle technology in 1998. He realized that developing and producing traction batteries in line with vehicle standards was the greatest challenge. He thus put his 15 years of experience to work by co-founding AKASOL AG in 2008 with three other specialists to pursue this mission.
