Development of vehicle chassis

With a extensive range of expertise and capabilities, we provide a holistic approach to vehicle chassis development.

We support you at all stages of your product's development and evolution.

Full chassis development and design

We offer design and engineering from the first draft through all phases of concept development and prototype construction to series introduction and support.

This includes the entire spectrum of chassis development. Individually tailored to your needs, the various development phases are supervised by the RLE chassis team. The project scope ranges from component level to system development and complete platform responsibility.

From concept to vehicle study to production-ready product. Shape the future of mobility with RLE! We support you with:

  • Benchmark analyses
  • Concept & Design
  • Lightweight design through generative engineering
  • Performance Validation
  • Development of electric vehicles
  • Testing and Tuning
RLE Mobility, Technical Unit Leader Chassis, Marc Gierlich

Thanks to proven state-of-the-art technologies and our many years of experience in chassis technology, we are able to offer our customers innovative and efficient eMobility solutions.

The chassis system, with its components such as wheels and dampers, is the direct link between the driver and the road – without a good connection, driving is only half the fun!
