Abstract: We announce the optimal $C^{1+\alpha }$ regularity of the gradient of weak solutions to a class of quasilinear degenerate elliptic equations in nilpotent stratified Lie groups of step two. As a consequence we also prove a Liouville type theorem for $1$-quasiconformal mappings between domains of the Heisenberg group $\mathbb {H}^{n}$.
