Auto-tech company uses NX CAD for new M1-S electric motorbike | ION Mobility

By Mollie Gladden

Today, Siemens Digital Industries Software announced that ION Mobility has used the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of software and services to bring its breakthrough IONM1-S electric motorbike to market, which will help accelerate the electrification of mobility in Southeast Asia.

The IONM1-S was designed with Siemens’ NX™ software for styling, mechanical engineering and electric battery back development. The multi-disciplinary CAD/CAM/CAE solution accelerates the product development process and is an end-to-end solution that allows teams to move from concept through engineering and into manufacturing readiness. With integration across the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of products, ION Mobility also utilized Siemens’ Teamcenter® software for Product Lifecycle Management and Capital™ software for wire harness design and manufacturing.

ION Mobility is an auto-tech company on a mission to create and deliver affordable, desirable, and sustainable mobility for everyone. The state-of-the-art design and precision engineered M1-S motorbike is the culmination of three years of rigorous effort, from a dedicated team of designers, engineers, and technologists across four countries to provide a sustainable urban solution, despite the challenges posed by the pandemic. It offers 150 km range, 4.3 kWh capacity with a less than 3-hours recharge time and a top speed of 105 km/h – all with 26 liters of under the seat storage and the compact agility that is demanded for a city bike.

Our design team has been working around the clock and across the globe to get the M1-S ready for production. The combination of Siemens’ NX, Teamcenter and Capital will allow us to bring together the disciplines of styling, mechanical engineering and wire harness design and to work cohesively as a team to ensure our products not only look amazing but perform as needed by our demanding target customers. All accomplished amidst the global pandemic.”
