The Challenge

With resources increasingly tied up with electrification and autonomous driving, vehicle manufacturers sometimes need reliable external development partners for the serial development of lead and derivative powertrains to support them. These partners need to truly understand the challenges of
  • Meeting the technical goals - emissions, fuel economy, performance, etc. - and in parallel ensure that other issues affecting industrialization and production are considered
  • Full quality management according to APQP is guaranteed
