UK-headquartered engineering consulting company Ricardo has announced its role in the launch of the US-made Winnebago eRV2 prototype.
According to Ricardo, Winnebago selected the company for its track record in diverse product development cycles, launch management and expertise in electric vehicle integration.
Ricardo was responsible for delivery of the project, from clean sheet design to vehicle launch in a one-year time frame. Project support included engineering, manufacturing, quality, procurement and supply chain management. Ricardo was also responsible for integration of a 48-volt electrical system, including electrical engineering architecture and wire harness.
“The project enabled the Ricardo team to demonstrate our expertise in the design and integration of software and electrical engineering solutions within a challenging time frame,” said Scott St. Clair, VP of Ricardo’s Strategic Consulting team.
