A demonstrator shows your future product for the first time in hardware form – be it an entire vehicle, an engine or a high-voltage battery. You get an initial impression at an early stage in the development process of the later result and can compare different options. On top of this, changes – such as to cable routing – are easier and quicker on the real-life object than they are in the virtual world with CAD programs.
In our workshop, our experienced team of engineers and technicians can construct vehicles and components and provide you with support right across the development process – through to the start of production and beyond. Thanks to our well-rehearsed processes and close cooperation with other IAV departments (such as for electronics, engines and calibration), we can offer you the full package starting with development support and ending with a roadworthy and approved demonstration vehicle. Our service portfolio also includes providing support in purchasing or modifying components.
Broad experience with hybrid and electric vehicles
Over recent years, we have gathered a wealth of expertise in numerous projects in the field of hybrid and electric vehicles and benefit from well-founded knowledge of the challenges posed by high-voltage safety. And we can also find the answers to unusual assignments, as can be seen from our long list of references – these also include demonstrators for combined heat-and-power plants and thermoelectric components.
