Drive your brand DNA



Objective Assessment of Vehicle Attributes

AVL-DRIVE 4™ - The tool for objective driveability assessment and development extends the capability of objective driveability evaluation from road to rig, to lab and to office. Ideal for defining the brand DNA, setting targets and monitoring the evolution of development within existing company processes up until final acceptance.


The Challenge

Balancing CO2 regulations and driving pleasure

  • How to manage trade-offs between affordable CO2 measures and positive driving experience?
  • How to target market- and brand-specific driveability expectations?

Maintaining brand-specific vehicle characteristics with electrified vehicles

  • How to keep the vehicle attributes recognizable in hybrid vehicles?
  • How to achieve an attractive cost-effectiveness with technologies of the future?

Keeping the quality during the complete development progress

  • How to track the quality and progress of the development?
  • How to define development targets and the own brand DNA?
