The paradigm shift from internal combustion engine vehicles to electric vehicles has revolutionised the automotive industry. Major changes that mainly occur during the development phases are becoming increasingly brief, and because of the safety considerations regulations are continuously changing. These new challenges must be properly studied to develop solutions that help the industry to design components that meet those requirements. In some cases, they may seem excessive. However, they relate to the actual conditions to which a vehicle may be subjected during its service life.
