Vehicle Manufacturing & Engineering

Vehicle & Manufacturing Engineering in the same proposition. From pre-development to after-sales, and through the complete development process: we offer an integrated approach.

We develop components and systems as well as complete vehicles. Our Manufacturing Engineering team ensures effective Body in White and Assembly planning while enabling the complete production infrastructure including logistics and ramp-up management. Our proven ability to deliver this combination enables us to shorten development time, increase overall quality and reduce costs.

Body in white development

Body structure, doors and hatches

We can deliver both modular and comprehensive vehicle development taking into account the needs of the manufacturing and production processes.

  • Pre-development / concept definition
  • Styling feasibility
  • Series design using an efficient and quality driven template-based design method
  • Production Ramp-Up and ongoing refinement / series-life development
  • Template-based design of components, modules and entire body shells
  • Modular concept development applicable to all vehicles
  • Expertise in lightweight construction (material and joining methods, aluminum, intelligent steel, magnesium, CFK, multi-material mix)
  • Intensive know-how for e-drive body in white concepts (battery & fuel cell)
