Choose a one-stop partner for e-Mobility vehicle services
An electric vehicle isn’t just another vehicle type. It’s a fundamental system change. It represents a technology and vehicle safety challenges for OEMs and automotive suppliers.
TÜV SÜD’s multidisciplinary expertise in both automotive and high-voltage electrical safety helps you meet these requirements. Our experts have designed, tested and verified a host of test solutions. These are not only in line with emerging market regulations but also with evolving consumer trends. Working in partnership, we accelerate your development processes while ensuring your product complies to national and international safety standards.
Our test solutions cover all aspects of design and development. From the functional and mechanical safety of the powertrain to the electrical safety of the high-voltage systems to the chemical safety of energy devices such as batteries. We also look at critical areas like failure safety, accidental electric shock protection and power availability.
Beyond test services, our experts can help your organisation streamline its electric vehicle development processes. We have developed a complete suite of analysis methods that can help your team through the design, development and verification of safety concepts. Our suite of vehicle services even extends to developing systems to address workplace hazards and the handling of electrical storage systems.

Benchmarking and performance testing
|The TÜV SÜD e-Car Cycle (TSECC) puts an additional dimension to the conventional evaluation range (different climate conditions). In the TSECC, electric vehicles have to run at different temperature conditions ranging from 7°C to 35°C (19°F to 95°F). At this extreme condition the vehicle needs additional energy for heating and cooling. The TSECC provides evidence that the electric vehicles also perform well under harsh conditions.|
