Nowadays, energy economy is one of the most important topics in all areas of technical research, especially in the automotive sector. Dwindling oil supplies and fossil fuels rising prices force automobile manufactures to develop less energy consuming vehicles. Furthermore, proceeding urbanization and a changing in young people's user behavior require new mobility concepts. Notes like car sharing concepts, smart grid, advanced driver assistance systems or the interactive vehicle are talked of a lot. Independent of which trends will prevail, it is obvious that future mobility will become increasingly manifold, complex and electric.

All this will bear huge challenges to the engineers. Future vehicles complexity will demand for high interdisciplinarity and enhanced teamwork in all stages of product development. To master these challenges universities education plays a major role to teach relevant skills.

This report presents a student project at the Institute for Internal Combustion Engines and Automotive Engineering (IVK) at the University of Stuttgart in which a commercial compact car vehicle with combustion engine was converted to an electric vehicle. The whole process of conversion including planning and specifying the requirements onto to electric vehicle, electric components selection, E/E-architecture design, control software design as well as implementation of hardware and software was done by students of the University of Stuttgart under the supervision of the Research Institute of Automotive Engineering and Vehicle Engines Stuttgart (FKFS) which is in tight cooperation with the IVK.
