Most parts of the Vehicle Dynamics department are finished and despite a number of setbacks, the Body department has also made a lot of progress. Read more about their progress and that of the Strategy and Powertrain departments through the button below!
In addition to our hard-working technical departments, the Operations department has also been very busy with new partnerships, our hydrogen webpage and the car wrap! This design will be sent to the printing company at the end of this week, we can’t wait to see the result! In addition we have continued developing a communications and marketing strategy with the help of a professional marketing manager Irma Bollen.
This month we have been busy organizing the design presentation. Despite several setbacks due to the current corona measures, we are motivated and we are busy putting on a spectacular event, where we can finally show you what we have been working so hard on all these months. We are really excited and we look forward to seeing and speaking to you all on February 18th! Read more about the design presentation on the website, through the button below.
