Munro and Sabic Explain New VW ID.4 Battery Tray

Sabic and Munro Associates Innovation Workshop VW ID.4 Weight Reduction

Munro and Sabic Explain New VW ID.4 Battery Tray

In this fascinating long-format episode, Sandy along with John Waters (Technology and Innovations Leader) from Sabic begin by telling stories about the EV 1 battery tray which both of them worked on in the past.  Sandy talks about how the OEM slowed down the process and caused Delco, where John used to work, to jump through several prototype hoops which were unproductive, but eventually the Lean Design, weight-reduced and fire-retardent superior design was chosen.

Moving on, the group meets up with Dave Sullivan (Leader, Americas Automotive Marketing as Sabic) and they walk through the new project and discuss the combined efforts of the group (over 40 people total) who came together for the Munro Sabic and VW workshop as well as suppliers.

The episode then winds through the innovation workshop and highlights the findings and process that culminated in a 53% weight reduction of the battery tray.  If you are a product design engineer, you don’t want to miss this episode.  Click below to watch the full video:
