SpeedE: Vehicle concept and research platform

The vehicle concept SpeedE transforms e-mobility into e-motion. It was developed in close cooperation with our research partner ika. The development process included the requirements definition of the overall concept, the component and occupant package, the design-technology convergence and the function and component development as well as the virtual validation up to the construction and testing of the prototype including user studies.

It is designed to take full advantage of an electric drivetrain and create a completely new and inspiring driving experience.

Exciting concept features are:

  • powerful torque vectoring drive at the rear axle
  • lateral control (vehicle guidance) via side sticks (joysticks)
  • wheel individual steer-by-wire system with wheel steering angles of up to 90 degree for innovative driving dynamics functionalities and an excellent maneuverability (allowing rotations around the inner back wheel)
  • central driver seat for an improved all-round visibility and spacious feeling in the cockpit
  • new entry concept including gullwing doors for an entry in an upright position
  • futuristic exterior design with an unconventional shape and innovative body structures

SpeedE is successfully used as a research platform to develop and evaluate new technologies, components and methods.
