Plug-in safety, speed and style. That’s betterThe future is electric, and car manufacturers are developing innovative hybrid and electric vehicles. This Sweden-based automaker pioneered a new approach when it created a luxury plug-in hybrid sports car based on aluminum fibre and we were in the driving seat to help it engineer the entire vehicle leveraging its turn-key product development capabilities.
When this Swedish automotive business set out to produce its first plug-in hybrid sports car, there was no question of compromising on the quality and luxury the brand is known for.
We took on full ownership for vehicle engineering, design and development, including full system integration and network validation.
There were many unknowns. This was a new brand, our first time building a vehicle in aluminium fibre and our first time collaborating with a partner in Sweden.
It was a truly international project; while most of the production took place in Europe manufacturing happened in China. Our presence across multiple territories and prior experience managing complex projects ensured we could go above and beyond at every stage, from concept to launch.
The client set extremely high performance targets inside and out, including ENCAP 5*, NAS legal and consumer tests, and exacting crash targets. We achieved them all, even while compressing the timing plan by up to 15%.
We’re proud to have delivered the safest premium sports car on the road, an achievement celebrated by the Euro Body awards for the car’s innovative structure.
