Large OEMs will need a large part of their capacities to handle this complexity in the development. Subsequently, the subcontract volume will become more extensive for the development partner. But with the size of the subcontract volume the complexity will also increase here, which the partner must overcome.
The Audi Q8 shows that PSW is already in the position for this future. Together with PSW and the other partners Audi developed the Luxus-SUV, which celebrated its world premier in 2018. During the development of the Audi Q8 PSW accepted to work on another project: the new Audi electric sports car. It is the biggest project in the company’s history.
