Teardown Analysis of Inverters for Major Electric Vehicles


Teardown survey data showing detailed analyses including external dimensions, internal structure, electronic circuit boards, components’ costs, and weight of inverters of major electric vehicles. In this third round, we have added the Audi e-tron and the Tesla Model Y Front & Rear. Combined with the existing Tesla Model 3, Nissan Leaf and Jaguar I-PACE, we are now offering for sale teardown analyses of six inverters.


Data contents

  1. Executive summary
  2. Side by Side Summary
  3. Inverter views, dimensions, mounting approach, cooling strategy
  4. PCB circuit diagrams, schematics and block diagrams
  5. PCB bill of material
  6. Costed Bill of Material


Key features

The Inverter Side-by-Side Analysis does a breakdown of each inverter from the vehicle system in which it is equipped and elucidates the architecture, component configuration, electronic circuit board, and cost. Therefore, it is possible to compare the differences of each inverter from various viewpoints.

Especially for the electronic circuit boards, from a block diagram and circuit diagram for each block to a description of the function of the installed devices, the design concepts will be understood in a single stroke.


Cost calculation method

Theoretical cost (“should-cost”) is calculated using analytical software developed by Munro over 15 years. The costs are calculated with a breakdown of material, process flow, labor cost, plant/building cost, quality handling cost, taxes, selling expenses, general administrative expenses, etc. A description of the cost calculation method is included in the report.
