The full-vehicle development company VELA Performance GmbH specializes in the development of high-tech products at the highest level. Our competencies in the areas of vehicle-development, lightweight design and innovative use of materials are employed in a large number of areas. We develop high-performance sports cars, utility vehicles as well as SUVs and multifunctional equipment carriers based on lightweight design principles. Our technologies are even applied in the aerospace sector.
For some time, another focus has been the development of electric vehicles. VELA both works on luxury EVs for the Silicon Valley startups as well as on autonomous city cars of the automotive future.
We unify all competencies necessary for the design of automobiles under our own roof. In particular, mechanical design, FEM/CFD, crash analysis as well as full-vehicle simulation are applied by our team members at our locations in Berlin and Kaufbeuren. This wide expertise allows the development team to realize complete vehicles – including the suspension, body structure, exterior and interior – holistically and efficiently.
This is supplemented by our in-house prototype workshop, which is equipped with 3D-scanning technology and able to provide various vehicle-focused services ranging from quality analysis to the re-engineering of components.
The VELA Performance GmbH is one of only a few companies which are internationally certified by the world motorsports authority FIA for the assessment of safety structures.
