Electric vehicles will definitely contribute to realisation of the worldwide ambitious CO2 goals. In order to improve the competitive situation, to speed up time to market and to reduce the overall cost for the end-users, a standardized set of power components, modules and sub-systems for electric traction should be developed by OEMs and automotive suppliers. This will improve reliability and maturity of the systems and enable a design-to-cost strategy.
