Benteler and Bosch and have formed a development coalition to merge the expertise in system integration for the chassis that was used as the basis for battery electric vehicles.
In this collaboration, Benteler offers information on the requirements imposed by a chassis on the automotive industry’s products and systems, while Bosch offers its facts of electrical and electronic components, steering and braking systems for subsystems, comprising software integration and systems as well as services.
The purpose of this development alliance is to unite the competence of rolling chassis as a base for electric vehicles powered by batteries. First, partners will have to better understand the requirements of a mobile chassis concept in products and systems. Second, this development alliance will allow both companies to continue to develop products and systems for their relevant use.
In addition, to create the two system integration features of the two companies, the development alliance is also designed to help Bosch carry out an accurate analysis of the chassis market. Customers will benefit from new customized, attractive, and modular e-mobility solutions that will save time and speed up growth. Other advantages are fewer interfaces and less production and development intricacy.
Benteler is a leading global partner in the automotive industry and has more than 140 Years of technical expertise in metal processing skills and excellent manufacturing. The company’s product portfolio comprises components and modules for chassis, white housing, engine and exhaust applications. All this technological expertise is illustrated by Benteler’s modular solutions for electronic mobility systems.
In 2017, it launched the first prototype of an electric vehicle with rolling frames, Benteler electric drive system. As part of the development alliance with Bosch, the partner will rely more on this experience of systems integration. The company brings its expertise, for example, in integrated collision management, chassis solutions, and scalable battery storage systems, to electrified axles.
