RICARDO - INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY SINCE 1915

Aside from strategy consulting, Ricardo is a leader in product innovations, technology, engineering, prototyping and small-series production. We work for a large number of truly diverse customers, all of them with very individual re-quirements, at our state-of-the-art technology centres in Europe, the USA and Asia. Ricardo operates in various sectors, such as passenger cars, motorcycles, commercial vehicles, construction, agricultural and industrial vehicles, marine, defence, rail traffic and motor sports. Ricardo contributes its comprehensive experience in hybrid and plug-in technology, lightweight motor design and vehicle optimisation to the development of electric vehicles. Examples of this are the development of a serial range extender, integrated start-stop systems on a 48 V basis for passenger cars and numerous electric drives for a wide range of applications. Power-train engineering on a system-integrated level accomplish synergies in terms of thermal and acoustic characteristics. It boosts the efficiency of the whole system and reduces design costs as well as the cost of testing important components. This includes development projects for electric motors, power electronics, battery systems, transmissions and mechanical energy storage systems (flywheels).
