Aiming to solve the problems for the companies that enter the electric vehicle business, GLM – the Japanese EV company behind the platform for the ZZ sports car – is taking the next steps towards mass production.
Growing demand for its expertise and its own technical platform of electric vehicle development solutions – including chassis, power systems, and vehicle control units – means it is moving its design and engineering capabilities to the ‘Electro Mobility Accelerator’ industry solution from Dassault Systèmes.
GLM will be able to integrate design and development processes, improve efficiency, leverage its knowledge and know-how to expand its range of products and services, and accelerate their delivery to OEMs, suppliers, and other companies involved in electric vehicle development.
“For us, abundant creativity and fast execution are critical, not only for developing our original electric vehicle model but also for providing our customers with electric vehicle development solutions,” said GLM COO Tomohisa Tanaka.
“Dassault Systèmes’ 3DExperience platform is widely used by companies in various industries. With it, we expect to reinforce our current partnerships and to expand the range of prospective ones to sectors such as high-tech and materials development.”
Olivier Sappin, VP of Dassault’s transport sector, added that electric vehicle innovators need to make a ‘strategic move toward sustainable growth’. “After all,” he said, “Japan has a tremendous legacy in efficient approaches to automotive development. GLM can become part of this legacy.”
