Vehicle engineering

Prototypes and demonstrator vehicles

In test vehicles, new powertrain components and systems are “put through their paces” and optimised. The AVL SCHRICK team supports you throughout the entire development process, from the design and implementation to vehicle testing. We take responsibility for the mechanical, thermal, electrical and functional integration of vehicle powertrains, including all steps required for adapting the powertrain to the vehicle body. As a technology leader, we offer you the entire spectrum of powertrain systems, from conventional powertrains to hybrid and purely electric powertrains. In close consultation with customers, our specialists manage the entire measurement- instrumentation process; if necessary, we can also take full responsibility for the organisation of test campaigns, including data evaluation, e.g. in fleet testing.

In addition to integration and vehicle testing, AVL SCHRICK offers you customised service concepts, including maintenance, hotlines and the fast delivery of spare parts.

We not only build prototypes and test vehicles for the development process, but also, as a second area of focus, produce highly professional demonstrator vehicles for trade fairs and presentations. In this area, we guarantee maximum confidentiality, using separate or screened-off work areas with limited access. We offer you the highest level of flexibility and involve you in all on-site work processes, as desired.

Our USP’s in the area of vehicle integration

Speed and Flexibility

With an extensive background in motorsport, we supply high-quality products and services, completing all work to the agreed deadlines – no ifs, ands or buts. The expertise of our highly motivated employees in the vehicle-integration team covers all required areas (mechanics, electrical systems, software, measurement engineering and calibration). This in-house expertise is complemented by the proximity to the AVL SCHRICK Manufacturing Centre.

Customised Solutions

Through our high-value-added services – which include the production of prototype parts and the use of state-of-the-art development tools – we are able to implement customised solutions quickly and cost effectively. For the implementation of new powertrain functionalities, we have access to the software library of the AVL Group.

Technological Leadership

With our own concept vehicles, we are constantly exploring the boundaries of what is possible. We also maintain close contacts to leading component and system suppliers, as well as to other experts in the AVL Group’s global network. This technological leadership is demonstrated by our numerous successful projects in the passenger-car and commercial-vehicle industry.
