Electrified mobility possesses significant potential to create short-term disruption in the automotive industry. Sales of electric vehicles (EV) are rapidly and steadily increasing, driven by improving battery technology, regulatory pressure, intense investment, and expanding charging infrastructure. As demand increases, established and startup automotive manufacturers need to quickly ramp-up EV production and reduce manufacturing costs to take advantage. EV manufacturing, however, presents unique challenges to automotive companies. By leveraging comprehensive digital twins of the product and production lines, manufacturers can design and validate assembly processes and entire facilities virtually, improving quality and accelerating production ramp.
