Strategies of Global OEMs for Electric Light Commercial Vehicle Platforms: All Major Automakers to Launch at Least One Dedicated Electric Platform by 2025 –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Added “Global OEMs’ Strategies for Electric Light Commercial Vehicle Platforms” report ResearchAndMarkets.coms offer.

Currently, OEMs are building electric light commercial vehicles (eLCVs) on a variety of platforms, including converting/customizing internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, using flexible multi-energy platforms, and starting from scratch on dedicated electric vehicle (EV) skateboarding platforms . ICE-based platforms may be more suitable for quickly converting an existing LCV into an eLCV model with minimal investment, but they lack the design flexibility and higher efficiency of pure electric platforms. Cost reduction, increase in addressable market, faster development and easy parts procurement are some of the factors driving platformization.

Platform development is no longer limited to OEMs. Multiple startups are building skateboarding platforms for OEMs or developers to license. Although the initial investment required is high, these platforms are flexible and scalable with a high level of efficiency and performance. For certain models, OEMs prefer to use proven platforms from other OEMs and then reuse them to reduce development costs and time to market.

Every major OEM is likely to have a pure electric platform by 2025, with Stellantis, VW and GM ahead of others. Select OEMs have already announced a relevant specification range, bodystyles, expected models and applications that their electric platforms can serve. Key eLCV platforms to look out for from major OEMs include STLA from Stellantis, MEB and SSP from Volkswagen, EVP and VAN.EA from Daimler, Ultium from GM, TE1 and GE2 from Ford, and LCV-EV from Renault- Nissan Mitsubishi.
