Module development

With our extensive engineering expertise, we take over responsibility for developing modules. We integrate components and systems functionally and set ourselves the challenge of increasing quality demands. From preliminary development and series development to series support after the start of production of individual parts, modules and the development of complete vehicles, we combine expert knowledge with the latest lightweight construction material technology trends.

One-stop extensive development

"The backbone of a vehicle"

Body & HV battery housing

Function fulfilment and cost efficiency are the challenge, lightweight construction and hybrid technologies are our tools.

We take responsibility for the development of complete bodies and act as a system integrator at all relevant interfaces.
Our goal: production-optimised development with optimum product features at minimum cost and weight.

"Moving modules"

Doors, flaps & lids

We are in control of the design methodology and have knowledge of materials, component features and function integration.

We set ourselves the challenge of developing complex module functions and using sustainable material concepts.

    • Innovative and flexible development tailored to your requirements
    • Challenging module development connected by kinematic systems
    • Function validation by means of simulation and testing
    • Supplier integration and management

„A space for passion“


Perceived value and quality play a significant role. The balance between optics, texture, usability, function and cost is the main theme of the development of the interior.

Included in the early project phase of concept selection and material definition, we work to achieve an optimum in goal conflict with regard to quality and cost.

    • Styling convergence, concept and serial development
    • Function integration & protection – ambient lighting, functional surfaces
    • Passenger safety, comfort and usability
    • New mobility adaption and autonomous driving (HMI)
    • International project setting within EDAG own processes and systems adapted into OEMs infrastructure
    • Product validation and homologation (ECE, FMVSS, CCC,…)
    • Support of prototype build and serial production



Nowadays, a good seat is no longer only characterized by the ergonomics and driving safety.
The quality of the seat also has to be right, and this can often only be assessed while driving.

In addition to the know-how of various suitable materials such as foams, covers, linings and much more, the EDAG competence team offers besides CAE calculation also testing of the manufacturability of individual features as well as feasibility tests in its own accredited test centers.

    • Development of complete seats (shock-absorbing, rotary, folding or special seats)
    • Project management, complete environment management: package, layout, DMU, data management
    • CAE calculation for seats, including add-on parts
    • Complete takeover of the drafting of product specifications and enquiry documents
    • Supplier and sub-supplier management, including derivatives management
    • Creation of 3D and 2D CAD data (CATIA, NX)
    • Producibility and feasibility studies

"See and be seen."


The understanding of emotional design as well as the development expertise of adaptive systems in the vehicle exterior allow us to implement an OEM-brand DNA.

The external appearance of the vehicle must be in line with the signature values of the brand. The same also applies to the development of the add-on parts. Whether it's spoilers, panels, windows, glass roof systems or complete modules, e.g. bumper systems  – we are the engineering specialists for add-on parts.

    • Styling convergence, concept and serial development
    • Function integration & protection – Aerodynamic and aeroacoustic optimization
    • Development of pedestrian protection, insurance class classification
    • Adaptation to new mobility concepts and autonomous driving (ADAS)
    • Lightweight solutions and cinematics
    • International project setting within EDAG own processes and systems adapted into OEMs infrastructure
    • Product Validation and homologation (ECE, FMVSS, CCC,…)
    • Support of prototype build and serial production

"Turn on the light and retain the view."

Light & vision

The range of this module scope stretches from the development of glazing through to the optimum design of the lighting.

No component makes a more marked contribution to the appearance of a car than its lights. They give a vehicle character and its own unique expression. Whether they are refined, grand, friendly or even aggressive - the lights are the "eyes" of a car, and are optimised to give the desired effect.

"The wide variety counts."

Powertrain integration

New technologies with drive types present new challenges. Our expertise in overall vehicle development qualifies us as a partner in the integration of electric, hybrid, fuel cell and conventional drives in your platforms.

The future of the car is determined by different drive concepts. The key to success lies in intelligent integration in existing architectures.
Our drive experts handle this for you.

    • Geometric integration of drives and gearboxes
    • Developments of e-drive mechanics
    • Development of overall vehicle functions -  crash, firmness, NVH
    • Casing development (gearboxes)
    • Acoustic development for engines and drives

"Keep on track."

Chassis / vehicle dynamics

We accompany you through the transformation from mechanical to mechatronic chassis systems and focus on new technologies for the chassis of the future.

The chassis of the future will increasingly be more intelligent and more efficient and therefore an important component of the strategy for reducing CO2. We support you in developing new technologies that master the requirements of autonomous driving and progress networking.

    • Development and integration of vehicle concepts
    • Development of vehicle movement dynamics and comfort
    • Simulation of vehicle handling in the model of the overall vehicle
    • Concept and system development of axis and steering systems
    • Development and integration of brake systems
    • Development of active chassis systems and driver assistance systems
    • Integration of wheels and tyres
    • Development of fuel and SCR systems
    • Chassis coordination and testing
