As the industry converges toward Connected, Autonomous, Shared, and Electric (CASE), there is an increasing need to reconsider OEMs’ platform strategies. Most OEMs have worked on re-engineering or modifying their conventional platforms to accommodate electric vehicle (EV) components such as batteries and motors. Since these platforms were not designed for EVs, any platform changes will be a stop-gap solution. Eventually, all OEMs will develop an EV platform from the ground up or rely on suppliers to offer new connectivity and automation functionality. The modular electric vehicle platforms will be flexible and multifaceted, with various vehicle types and shapes being built on the same platform. This approach will save OEMs the time, effort, and money required to launch new models.
