Developing Electric Vehicles that Go the Distance

The future of mobility and its many trends – connected, autonomous, shared and electric vehicles – is posing a unique challenge for OEMs as aim to reach the best range possible to enable mass market adoption. From designing the lightest vehicle possible while including batteries, to optimizing the energy management strategy of the vehicle – there are many strategies to design the highest performing EVs.

With rigid timeframes, virtual prototypes are key to helping engineers hit their targets, innovating, while ensuring a cost-efficient design.

Join our upcoming webinar to learn how to test & design your vehicle virtually, efficiently allowing you to develop the best strategy for optimal range while reducing the amount of test needed.

This webinar is an exclusive view of what we will be showcasing at CES 2020 !

In case you don't see the form or can't register please follow this link.


In this webinar you’ll learn how to:

  • Design and certify lightweight cars including battery packs (battery versus structure weight)
  • Reduce cabin energy consumption while keeping comfort expectation (thermal comfort/management)
  • Develop an Optimal Energy management Strategy for EV cars (at the system level)

With customer examples:

ESI Virtual Performance Solution saves us time and money. We are able to validate the performance of our innovative composite vehicle virtually before even manufacturing the first real prototype.
