Driving Innovation: EEVAM and Siemens Revolutionize Electric Vehicle Design

By Susann Kunz

In the ever-evolving landscape of automotive design, the journey towards an electric future is well underway. Spanish design firm EEVAM stands at the forefront, ready to shape the next generation of electric vehicles (EVs) and smart mobility solutions. With a continued commitment to innovation and sustainability, EEVAM leverages the power of Siemens software to drive progress in the automotive industry.

The Road to Electric Mobility

The transition towards electric vehicles has been gaining momentum in recent years, driven by environmental concerns and technological advancements. EEVAM, short for Engineering Electric Vehicles and Advanced Mobility, embraces this shift with the core of its business. Led by visionary CEO Jesús Salazar Avís, EEVAM aims to revolutionize the automotive sector by promoting the design, development, and production of EVs.

“In order to fulfill our mission, we have assembled a multidisciplinary team capable of collaborating with OEMs every step of the way, from concept to production,” says Avís. This collaborative approach ensures that EEVAM remains at the forefront of emerging EV technologies, focusing on tailored powertrain solutions, chassis-powertrain integration, and cutting-edge electronics implementation.

Powered by Partnership: Siemens and EEVAM

EEVAM’s journey is supported by a strategic partnership with Pixel Sistemas, a Smart Expert Partner of Siemens Digital Industries Software. Through the Solid Edge Start-up program, EEVAM has gained access to invaluable support, including free software packages, implementation, training, and ongoing technical assistance. This partnership has empowered EEVAM to optimize its processes, enhance efficiency, and achieve its business objectives effectively.

Building Tomorrow’s Vehicles Today

Established in 2018, EEVAM was born out of recognition of the growing demand for advanced electric vehicle manufacturing capabilities. Despite the regulatory and infrastructural challenges inherent in this emerging market, EEVAM remains consistent in its mission. “The transition to electric vehicles presents a unique opportunity for Spain’s economy,” explains Jonathan Garcia Eguidazu, project manager at Pixel Sistemas. “It has the potential to drive job creation, attract investment, and reduce carbon emissions, contributing positively to Spain’s transition to a low-carbon future.”

One of EEVAM’s core principles is agility – an essential trait in navigating the rapidly evolving automotive landscape. Avís notes, “An agile start-up-like mentality is required to adapt to this new situation, but for a project to be successful, it needs to be backed by a well-established industrial group with sufficient resources.” By bridging the gap between nimble startups and established manufacturers, EEVAM offers a unique opportunity for OEMs to accelerate their EV projects with the expertise of industry experts.

Innovative Solutions for Sustainable Mobility

EEVAM’s approach to electric vehicle development is comprehensive, spanning the entire design lifecycle. From concept ideation to prototyping and production, the company’s multidisciplinary team is equipped to handle every stage of the process. EEVAM’s Unique Selling Proposition (USP) lies in its innovative approach to design consultancy, particularly in the realm of sustainable and environmentally conscious solutions.

“Elevating the electric vehicle design paradigm requires creativity and forward-thinking,” says Eguidazu. “EEVAM stands out for its ability to pioneer new methods and techniques to achieve optimal results.” Siemens’ Solid Edge software serves as the cornerstone of EEVAM’s design process, offering advanced shape creation and manipulation capabilities essential for conceptualizing unique products.

Empowered by Siemens Software

Solid Edge serves as EEVAM’s multi-purpose engineering tool, facilitating CAD modeling, packaging, layout verification, and component integration. Avís emphasizes the software’s role in visualizing products and optimizing component placement, particularly in the context of EVs where space optimization is paramount.

“Designing and verifying something as minuscule as cable lengths is essential for optimizing the internal space of a vehicle,” explains Avís. “The integration between the 3D CAD and the wiring environments of Solid Edge is a key tool in our workflow, allowing us to visualize all elements and make real-time adjustments.”

Looking Ahead: Shaping the Future of Transportation

As the automotive industry evolves, EEVAM remains committed to driving innovation in electric vehicle design. Avís envisions a future where connectivity and smart features play a central role in vehicle development. While the company explores niche applications like fuel cell energy storage, its primary focus remains on lithium-based solutions for now.

With electric vehicles poised to dominate the roads of tomorrow, EEVAM’s expertise and Siemens’ software solutions are paving the way for sustainable mobility. As the automotive industry embraces the electric revolution, EEVAM’s innovative approach will continue to shape the future of transportation.
