Whatever you need, whether it’s an electric axle module, a complete platform or a rolling chassis: we guarantee the perfect interaction between the components and systems.
Platform and rolling chassis
Electric vehicles have a completely different architecture to cars with combustion engines. This is because of the complex e-powertrain, which must be integrated into the vehicle for maximum functionality and efficiency. Our solution is the BENTELER Electric Drive System (BEDS). It is an open platform, which we have successfully launched globally. The platform combines our e-mobility systems such as Integrated E-Chassis Modules and our modular battery pack. Together with our partners Bosch, Vibracoustic and Pininfarina, we have optimized the interfaces to the e-powertrain, EE and body. On the basis of the platform we also offer you - together with our partners - a rolling chassis. Here, all modules are mechanically and functionally integrated into a functional "skateboard".
Full modular battery pack
BENTELER is one of the leading suppliers of battery trays. Combined with our competence in cooling systems, we have designed a full modular battery pack ready for integration into the vehicle body. This includes the aluminum tray, cooling, battery modules, fittings and the high-voltage wiring and connections.
The integration of an electric powertrain into the chassis brings with it a significant increase in engineering complexity. BENTELER, with its Integrated E-Chassis Module (IEM), offers you chassis system solutions for several vehicle platforms from B up to E segment for front and rear suspension. Besides the integration of the e-motor, the new IEM also contains the driveshafts, the brake foundation and the steering system. The key is scalability and modularity of the chassis.
What makes BENTELER a specialist in e-Mobility?
We have significant expertise in system solutions for electric vehicles. We combine it with our competence in engineering and manufacturing of chassis systems and with the know-how of crash and thermal management. Together with our partners, we offer you the full vehicle competence. Plus, we provide system solutions for front and rear Integrated E-Chassis Modules, as well as battery packs and platform solutions for electric vehicles.
What innovative e-mobility solutions does BENTELER offer in the chassis area?
We have developed an Integrated E-Chassis Module - for front and rear. It contains the classic chassis components like subframe, link arms and knuckles. It also includes the e-motor, the steering and the dampers.
