On one hand repairability is strongly influencing the sustainability of the technology, on the other hand it is driving cost of ownership and therefore attractiveness of buying EVs.
To address those challenges the Allianz Center for Technology (AZT) has created this position paper.
Based on our claims experience, we give recommendations on how to avoid expensive damages, e.g. by better protecting the high-voltage-battery against underside damage.
Second, in case of a damage, we line out how to improve repairability, for example by adjusting the battery design or improving access to battery data.
We hope this paper starts the discussion on the topic and as a result leads to more sustainable claims repair.
