Your industry is going 100% electric. Let us help you get there quicker.
Electrification is the biggest disruption to the automotive industry in decades. It is challenging industry norms from consumer demand through to manufacturing operations and even sales models. New players are taking advantage of lower barriers to entry and gaining advantage from agile development techniques and emerging technologies. Just as electric vehicles (EVs) reimagine the concept of a vehicle, so the industry must reimagine the way it operates to remain relevant in the electric world.
The shift to EVs is an opportunity to break away from traditional volume-based approaches and embrace the benefits of smart manufacturing. Research from Wards Intelligence suggests that smart manufacturing, not scale, may be the key to success in the electric vehicle pivot. Download your copy of the report here to learn more.
100%EV is powering toward a new EV future
EVs are predicted to represent a third of the automotive market by 2025 and 51% by 2030. But we believe the automotive industry can make this shift even faster, and we want to support your efforts to do so. This is why Hexagon has created 100%EV – to help accelerate electrification.
Meet tomorrow's EV demands today
With consumer awareness of sustainability and environmental issues rising, and fast-moving technology culture fuelling anticipation of the digitally-connected cars of the future, interest in EVs has never been higher.
At the same time, environmental targets are driving dynamic regulatory change in the automotive industry. Seventy-three countries have announced 100% net-zero CO2 targets by 2050, but globally shared targets are a long way off. Many OEMs also have their own EV targets in place – all increasing the demands on designers working to meet the needs of each local market.
Manufacturers understand that to offer consumers the choice, technology, quality and comfort they desire, there will need to be a greater variety of electric vehicles. They also recognise the potential of EVs to simplify vehicle technology and are targeting the creation of multiple new modular platforms that maximise the benefits of removing some of the physical constraints of conventional vehicles.
