Location: 1800 Opdyke Court Auburn Hills, Michigan

FEV Vehicle Benchmarking has a long history and deep know-how within powertrain benchmarking.  Starting from conventional powertrain testing on combustion engines and transmissions, FEV established development and benchmarking capabilities on electrified drivetrains and fuel cell systems. A wide range of HV batteries, electric drive units, power electronics, and fuel cells has been analyzed. The deep technical results of our benchmark studies help FEV and its clients develop cutting-edge future powertrain solutions. Teardown and cost studies show details on the product design and cost structure. During workshops with our customers, we identify new design and cost-reduction ideas and look for new product opportunities.
