Ensure your alternative energy vehicles are type approved
Hybrid electric vehicles, battery electric vehicles and fuel cell cars have a new and additional layer in the type approval process. In addition to all conventional component approvals that are relevant for homologation, all electric installations need to fulfill full compliance to the specific technical regulations. Functional safety becomes a very relevant issue as mechanical and electronic devices need to inter-operate. Typical failure analysis falls short if mechanical testing and electronic failure simulation are not harmonised.
TÜV SÜD is at the forefront of these developments. We are working with other industry partners to create specifications and processes that comply with existing and emerging governmental regulations around the world.
Our homologation-oriented support covers initial design to final application for whole vehicle type-approval. This comprehensive framework ensures your designs are realised within the regulatory requirement framework for all target markets. Saving you both time and money.
Electric vehicle design requires specialised know-how and expertise. We can support you with our vast experience in this field.
Our e-homologation services are applicable for:
- All types of electric vehicles from two-wheelers, quads, passenger cars to heavy commercial vehicles
- Certification of individual approvals and small batches, up to homologation for full-production run
