Architecture & Design

Leverage our experience

stepvan_EDI-01aEDI's engineers have developed generations of advanced PHEV/HEV/EV solutions across a wide range of applications, demonstrating them in numerous separate vehicle platforms. Vehicle manufacturers face a wide array of complex issues including: drivetrain architectural decisions, component selection and specification, developing controls for hybrid/multi-energy drivetrain systems, integrating power transmission devices, and working with new battery modules and management systems. Our experience and know-how with these complexities enable us to provide our customers with the most efficient and quickest time-to-market solutions, with optimized vehicle functionality.

The advanced conceptual and pioneering work that has been completed by EDI technologists provide us with a unique perspective and broad expertise with numerous vehicle architectures. This enables us to offer you the best solution for your vehicle and market requirements.

What we can do for you:

  • Evaluate vehicle design and architectural trade-offs (parallel, series, electrical vehicles) and complete computer simulations of various options which can be used to determine the best design direction
  • Provide optimized specifications for all drivetrain components and systems facilitating the development of a cost and performance optimized vehicle
  • Provide innovative products, control software and controllers, and other key components required to manufacture and test prototype and production drivetrain designs

A wide array of variables must be considered for your products architecture:

  • Cost
  • Weight
  • Size
  • All electric range
  • Fuel economy targets
  • Power
  • Battery system requirements
  • Motors
  • Generators
