Benteler and Bosch are to start a collaboration with Pininfarina.
“Jointly we now cover the entire development process for electric vehicles until start of production,” noted the companies. “Car manufacturers save costs and benefit from a faster market entry.
“The collaboration with Pininfarina adds a partner with outstanding capabilities. Pininfarina, with its 90 years of expertise in the automotive industry, will provide top hat, style and engineering, successfully integrating the upper body structure with the chassis.
“Thanks to its expertise as vehicle integrator, Pininfarina owns the know-how for successfully integrating the single components into the car. As a result, Benteler, Bosch and Pininfarina can cover the development process for an electric vehicle, all the way to the start of production, including the building of prototypes.
“The advantage for electric-vehicle manufacturers is their ability to quickly implement their prototypes in many different variations and designs, saving them both time and money.”
