EV Skateboard Platform: Introduction, Types & Future

A platform is the basic framework of a car, without a body, chassis, or power unit such as an engine or motor.

What is EV Skateboard Platform?

A monocoque chassis is incredibly easy to build. The car’s structure, foundation, and body are made up of all its mechanical components. 

Monocoque Chassis

Simply linked to the framework are the outer body panels, seats, suspension, engine, and gearbox.

The ladder frame is supported by two short beams and has two long, heavy beams. It is adaptable and simple to produce.

The off-roading capabilities are improved and the suspension could move farther and almost independently of the body due to its simplicity of production and ability to be moved separately from the body.

Connecting the front and rear suspension attachment points is a sturdy tubular backbone that is typically rectangular in shape.

The body panels have little to no structural value and are just used to join the suspension, engine, and body panels to a skeletal structure of tubes.
