Automotive development in:

  • Interior

The customer's comfort plays a central role in the development of interior systems and components. The vehicle needs to feel right as soon as the customer gets into it for the first time. A feeling that is typical for that particular brand of car and clearly distinguishes it from other brands. At EDAG, we know what to do to ensure that the first, decisive impression is positive.

  • Exterior

What applies for the interior applies equally for the exterior: the outward appearance presented by a car must conform with the values typical of the brand. The same also applies to the development of the add-on parts. For spoilers, panels, windows, glass roof systems or complete modules, e.g. bumper systems, we are the engineering specialists for add-on parts. In addition, working within a network of OEMs, suppliers and tool makers, we also guarantee active and passive safety requirements, for instance for passenger and pedestrian protection.

•  Body in white

New materials, new steel qualities, design amendments – in the course of time, a great many different challenges and technologies have had their effect on a vehicle's body in white.
The aim is always the same: optimum product properties at minimum cost and weight. Our task is to ensure that no conflicting aims arise between these new requirements and quality standards. And, of course, bearing the subsequent production in mind. We call this production-optimized development.

  • Powertrain & Chassis

It is no longer enough today to develop new types of powertrains and chassis concepts. The key lies rather in the intelligent integration in the overall concept or complete vehicle. We accept responsibility for the functional integration of the powertrain and chassis systems in the vehicle. Our range of services extends from feasibility studies and concepts for series development to approval recommendation and sample testing of the systems at the suppliers' premises and customers' works.
