Millbrook Brings EV Testing to the West Coast with New California Facility
September 3rd 2019
- New facility in California offers e-machine testing at speeds of 20,000rpm, inverter testing, Vehicle-in-the-Loop (VIL) test capabilities and battery simulation
- Established in San Francisco Bay area to serve growing number of EV developers
Millbrook has opened its second electric vehicle (EV) driveline test facility in the USA. The company brings the expertise of its three other driveline test facilities to California, alongside the cutting-edge dynamometer test systems it has designed and installed.
The facility has been created to serve the American, Asian and European automakers that are developing the next generation of EVs on the West Coast. It will enable customers to perform complex integration testing and validation of EV powertrain components, full powertrains and complete vehicles.
The opening of our Californian facility builds on Millbrook Revolutionary Engineering’s success in Michigan, and allows engineers on the West Coast to make their development cycles faster and more efficient by using a more local test facility.
Millbrook offers a wide range of EV driveline test solutions in the USA, UK and Northern Finland. These include varied outdoor and indoor test tracks, e-motor and e-axle test cells and battery test facilities. In addition, Millbrook Revolutionary Engineering designs, builds, installs, and services dynamometer test systems across the continents, with presence in the USA, Europe and Asia.
