Electrified propulsion systems will play a significant role in helping OEMs meet fleet CO2 reduction targets for 2025 and beyond.

In this free, 60-minute webinar, experts from FEV discuss a host of EV-specific NVH considerations, ranging from occupant comfort to pedestrian safety across a full complement of on-road vehicles.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • The NVH characteristics of EDUs are significantly different from their ICE counterparts, requiring novel methods of development and validation
  • The lack of “masking noise” traditionally offered by ICE-based powertrains creates additional EV-specific NVH challenges
  • NVH development for electric vehicles includes optimization of the interior noise behaviour as well as exterior noise for pedestrian safety
  • Advanced simulation and test-based methodologies are needed to optimize the NVH behaviour of drive units as well as electric vehicles
