Just Auto - What will a Tesla electric truck look like?

Just what would a Tesla electric freight truck look like? It's a question that many in the auto industry have been asking after the latest visionary bulletin (Master Plan, Part Deux) from Tesla founder and talisman Elon Musk. 

Tesla CEO Elon Musk wrote in his Master Plan, Part Deux, that future electric models from Tesla will include a full-sized truck. He promised that it would "deliver a substantial reduction in the cost of cargo transport" as well as being safer and "really fun to operate".

Ales Alajbegovic, VP Ground Transportation at EXA is in a position to have some inkling of the design that may be coming down the Tesla CV line (and unveiled as early as next year). EXA already works with Tesla to reduce aerodynamic drag on its passenger vehicles, as well as truck firms and semi-trailer makers to help reduce air drag and cut down on the substantial fuel costs.

Automotive World - Simulation-driven tyre design offers 3% fuel economy gain

Using simulation tools from an early phase of vehicle design can reduce time to market and eliminate the need for costly prototyping. As a result, companies that specialise in providing the software for automotive applications believe that simulation will play an increasingly important role in vehicle design as OEMs look for competitive advantages across every aspect of development.

Engineering.com - Tier One Adds New Simulation Tools for OEM Customers

In the past, automotive parts suppliers provided their customers with what they requested, and the customer would design their product from there. This process has since evolved.

Automotive design engineers began asking their suppliers for advice on how to optimize the designs of their products according to the assembly’s strengths and weaknesses – and who would understand these qualities better than the people who manufactured the parts?

New Collaborative Partnership Between DENSO and Exa Set to Transform the Way Vehicle Manufacturers Work With Suppliers

Exa Corporation (Nasdaq:EXA), a global innovator in simulation software for product engineering, and DENSO Corporation, a leading supplier of advanced automotive technology, systems and components, have announced a new collaborative partnership that will transform the way carmakers have traditionally interacted with suppliers. The partnership enhances the product development process by moving key engineering and design work from automotive suppliers to a certified simulation-driven process that can be done much earlier in the development process, reducing the number of late-stage vehicle design changes.

Autocar - Aerodynamics: why virtual testing is better than a wind tunnel

Manufacturers are moving away from wind tunnel testing and opting to use virtual simulation techniques instead in their quest to reduce aerodynamic drag.

By switching to computer simulations, engineers can model a car’s aerodynamics without even building one.

Virtual simulation techniques are not only quicker and less costly than using a wind tunnel but also yield better results.
