Consumer concerns about global warming drive automakers to shift propulsion strategies to electric motors with innovative battery systems. When new markets develop and consumer preferences change, time-to-market for new products becomes the battleground for all automakers—established and start-ups. Fortunately, the advances in Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) for electrical powertrain systems development keep development cycles competitive.
Check out this commentary from CIMdata on how Siemens e-Powertrain solutions can accelerate product development and how Tesla, GM, and Stellantis are using Siemens’ solution to challenge the electrified vehicle development status quo.
Innovative EV batteries and motors are needed for vehicle electrification
New electrical drive units, batteries, and power electronics are dependent on new, high-volume mass production processes while making production refinements as they are learned. Because of this, new vehicle electrification subsystems will need broad systems thinking and simulation from the start of development to produce an optimized product.
Leverage a generative digital twin to develop and verify top value electrified vehicles
Leveraging a generative digital twin to develop and virtually verify secure, reliable, and energy-efficient electric vehicles is a huge advantage. An executable digital twin helps prevent waiting for the construction of a physical prototype and test cycle, exposes design weaknesses, and encourages integrated product development.
Rapidly develop and deliver electric vehicles with Siemens’ e-Powertrain capabilities
Siemens’ e-Powertrain solutions integrate mechanical and electronic design and simulation tools and shorten product development time. These solutions have been designed to keep engineers collaborating—improving decision-making across the lifecycle by keeping the right information available to all parties creating new motors, batteries, and the electronics that control them.
