Electric vehicle

In 2002, Applus+ IDIADA began the process of developing hybrid and electric vehicles with a focus on passive safety and durability. Over the last 10 years, Applus+ IDIADA has been involved in the development and homologation of more than 20 electric/hybrid vehicles, contributing our knowledge in the fields of passive safety, active safety, high-voltage safety, powertrain, durability and homologation. Applus IDIADA has developed an end-to-end service for the manufacture of hybrids and fully electric vehicles, able to fulfill all functions for all vehicle types.
