Electric cars made to be intelligent and affordable

Developing premium yet affordable electric vehicles requires Chinese car manufacturer Neta Auto to maintain a keen focus on costs and productivity at every stage of the product development cycle – something it’s achieving with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

When Neta Auto arrived on the automotive scene in 2014, it made a bold statement to deliver intelligent electric vehicles (EVs) that are affordable for all. Almost a decade later and it has four EV models in its portfolio, including the Neta GT coupe – a luxury electric car costing around half the price of comparable vehicles on the market today.

Just like the Neta U and Neta V SUVs and the Neta S sedan, the Hozon-owned Chinese manufacturer has packed the Neta GT with innovative smart cockpit technology and premium features to create a compelling offering that combines superior performance, safety, quietness, comfort and intelligence.

To master the innate complexity that comes with developing multiple high-tech vehicles while keeping costs under control, Neta Auto continually invests in the latest digital capabilities to streamline its product development. Today, that includes managing its global design, engineering and manufacturing processes on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

One of the key reasons Neta Auto moved to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform was to speed up product development and bring innovative new vehicles to market as fast as possible.

“By creating an environment for synchronous design, development and verification, we can shorten the R&D cycle from eight to six months and accelerate our product launches,” said Dai Dali, CTO of Neta Auto.

Achieving greater synergies between mechanical and electronic design is proving crucial, as is the ability to carry out simulation analysis to improve and optimize the structural design of each vehicle. Neta also uses the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to plan and optimize the production processes across its different factories.
