Advanced Manufacturing Solutions for Power and Charging Technology
The journey to the mass-adoption of hybrid and electric vehicles is not a smooth ride. While advanced technology enabling partial- and full-electrification of the powertrain has existed for many years, there are many challenges to overcome before the automotive industry can deliver vehicle electrification to the mass-market. One of the biggest challenges is the ability to scale production of power and charging technology, at a cost acceptable to the end-user.
For nearly a decade, global automotive & transportation OEM’s and their strategic suppliers have trusted Jabil to support the industrialization and production of highly-complex technology for hybrid and electric vehicles, including battery management systems, inverters, converters, cables, off-board and on-board charging. The proof is more than one million strong - that’s how many electric and hybrid vehicles on the road today that have Jabil-manufactured powertrain technology.
Jabil’s industrialization and manufacturing expertise enables our customers to bring automotive-grade technology to market, at scale. Specifically, customers can accelerate time-to-market of new vehicle electrification technology by leveraging our industrialization capabilities to design first-time manufacturable products, while retaining ownership of all Intellectual Property. And with our customers bottom line in mind, we use Value Analysis & Value Engineering (VAVE) to identify cost-effective solutions that will result in optimal product profitability.
