When initial manufacturing volumes are low yet aesthetics remain a high priority it can be difficult to balance the budget. The Rapid EV is a perfect example that this can be achieved.
Making the Impossible,Possible.
The challenge for Tharsus in transforming Aker Wade’s rapid EV charger from concept to reality was to take a creative designer’s automotive styling and engineer it for manufacture at low volume without the type of tooling typically required.
Many who we spoke to had said couldn’t be produced but we proved them wrong and the results speak for themselves.
A Form Vs FunctionSolution.
A tenacious approach was required to resolve a number of the EV charger’s key design elements including a fully safety certified and illuminated side panel made from curved glass complete with ventilation holes.
The development team made excellent use of 3D CAD, knowledge of materials and manufacturing methods and extensive research of the supply chain alternatives to achieve the perfect blend of form and function.
