To enable collaboration across teams and bridge the gap between design and manufacturing seamlessly, Cell Propulsion, an electric mobility startup founded by former ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) engineers in electric mobility technology, has chosen the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud of Dassault Systèmes.
Based in Bengaluru, Cell Propulsion builds and deploys high-power, high-payload electric light commercial vehicles (eLCVs) and electric heavy commercial vehicles (eHCVs) as part of their integrated solution, using SOLIDWORKS and ENOVIA applications powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. It aims to develop an integrated ecosystem to accelerate the adoption of electric commercial vehicles by logistics and transportation companies in India.
According to Dassault Systèmes, the electric mobility startup has adopted the 3DEXPERIENCE platform from battery pack, eCV design & development, planning project timeline for product designing, and 3D modelling to product assembly, to address various challenges related to product life-cycle management, improve collaboration, and visualise 3D design with real-time simulation.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform will help Cell Propulsion to collaborate and streamline the design process as per production and manufacturing requirements, thereby reducing costs, the company said.
Nakul Kukar, Co-Founder and Chief Executive, Cell Propulsion, said, “In order to meet the growing demand for EVs in India, we are developing integrated solutions to make this transition seamless. We needed a safe, scalable solution to track product development, project progress and further our goal of enabling large-scale commercial vehicle fleet electrification using smart, electric mobility technology. Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform is assisting us in turning our concepts into models using tools like SOLIDWORKS and ENOVIA, and also in planning out the project timetable and delivering the result in a much more professional and timely manner. Furthermore, the 3DEXPERIENCE community helps us connect with innovative global companies in EV space to understand, adopt and customise the best practices for EV development.”
Deepak NG, Managing Director, India, Dassault Systèmes, said, “Electric vehicles are ushering in a new era of mobility that is efficient, affordable, clean and sustainable. Bringing this new generation of vehicles onto the road requires new innovators, suppliers and the ecosystem to rethink the way they design, engineer, procure and manufacture. To meet the growing demand, this change needs to happen quickly.”
