Rimac Automobili accelerates its next electric supercar with Dassault Systèmes’ product lifecycle management platform

Rimac Automobili, a maker of electric supercars, has selected Dassault Systèmes to provide the product lifecycle management platform for the company’s expansion. 

Rimac Automobili wants to scale its business from European startup to major supplier to the global automotive industry as market demands for electric vehicles increase.

Rimac Automobili is using Dassault Systèmes’ Electro Mobility Accelerator to design and develop high-performance electric vehicles, drivetrains and battery systems, including the next generation of its Concept One fully electric super sports car. 

More and more consumers are looking to buy electric cars worldwide, without sacrificing the sleek aesthetics and fast, powerful performance of the traditional sports car.

Rimac Automobili recognized the market potential for electric vehicles and its own role as an integral supplier to major automobile manufacturers.

Based on Dassault Systèmes’ 3DExperience platform, Electro Mobility Accelerator provides Rimac Automobili with digital applications to industrialize its operations, expand its production capacity and connect its workforce in 11 countries.

Its teams have access to real-time information for full visibility on projects, changes and product data throughout the development phases.

They can detect and resolve issues earlier, reuse data, and organize and prepare complex production processes.

Rimac Automobili can accelerate its full vehicle development business and deliver on programs for customers.

Mate Rimac, founder and CEO, Rimac Automobili, says: “The Electro Mobility Accelerator industry solution experience enables quicker design, simulation and collaboration that will improve our productivity and satisfy customer requirements.

“We’ve long used SolidWorks for specific projects and looked to Dassault Systèmes to accompany us as we scale up our business. With a digital platform we can align our resources and capabilities to fully carry out any kind of electric vehicle program in-house.”

Olivier Sappin, vice president, transportation and mobility industry, Dassault Systèmes, says: “The automotive landscape is evolving every day. Today’s electric car startup is working to create tomorrow’s autonomous car sharing vehicle.

“Collaborative, intelligent and intuitive digital environments are the innovation labs for creating new experiences in this sector. The 3DExperience platform is a scalable and adaptable tool for companies to accelerate their evolution from startups to the next generation of car makers.”

Zlatko Simunec, CEO, CADCAM Group, says: “The complex automotive development cycle is requiring greater collaboration and integration across the industry, and this can be supported only by a single source of information.

“The result is innovative and reliable products, based on faster decision-making, the reuse of existing models, know-how and comprehensive requirements management.

“We are working with Rimac Automobili to provide them with consulting and implementation services related to the 3DExperience platform that will support them across multiple business processes.”
