C4D Company History

consulting4drive, the management consultancy of IAV, was founded in April 2007.
This decision was driven by the recognition that the increasing complexity in implementing strategies can only be dealt with outstandingly if teams offer a combination of expertise in technology and consulting in equal measures. There can be no discrepancy between methodological and technical competence if technically and organizationally complex projects are to be processed successfully and therefore effectively.

Our Services

consulting4drive is the management and strategy consultancy of IAV. As a wholly-owned subsidiary of IAV, we have a clear automotive and mobility focus. We are seamlessly integrated into the IAV service processes: from strategy definition, market entry concepts, business models, concept creation, process design, advanced or series production development, and validation up to and including field support.

Consulting and Engineering as a Synergistic Service

C4D offers consulting and engineering as a synergistic service from a single source. Our team consists of consultants with many years of experience and, in the majority of cases, an engineering background. What we do and how we do it are borne out of passion and belief – which is why we focus on your objective and task formulation.

‘Boutique’ Consulting Approach

Ready-made standard methods are not our thing; instead, we offer you boutique consulting solutions tailored individually to your needs. In addition, however, we also bring our extensive technical understanding and our content visions for better vehicles and pioneering mobility solutions to bear in your projects.

What Does This Mean for You?

Outstanding, productive cooperation, short product throughout times, results with very high technical maturity, a superior price/result coefficient.

This is our DNA:

Driven by experience. And by passion for auto-mobility.

Strategy Definition

C4D offers consulting and engineering as a synergistic service from a single source. Our team consists of consultants with many years of experience and, in the majority of cases, an engineering background. What we do and how we do it are borne out of passion and belief. We focus on your objective and task formulation.

Market Entry Conception

Classic methods such as potential and competitive analysis go hand-in-hand with our transformation understanding of the digital platform economy; there is no benefit to you in trailing after other market players; instead, you are interested in enjoying success and being at the very forefront by exploiting all marketing and consumer support options.

Business Models

“Whoever lives in the past will find it difficult to design the future.” True to this motto, our employees regularly use and test the latest solutions. Thanks to a passion for improving the customer experience and agile, iterative business model development procedures, this translates into solutions that pay dividends for you in global competition.

Concept Creation

Through consulting and engineering as a synergistic service from a single source, we offer you superior performance in creating new product and service concepts. We not only define concepts but also transfer them from strategy to operational implementation together with you. On site at your premises and on the test track.

Process Design

New processes do not take off because they are well thought-out but because they are practical. To achieve this, we make use of our expertise acquired in over 600 consulting projects and check the processes for functional weaknesses and for implementation feasibility and robustness in each project. We place this high standard at your disposal.

Advanced or Series Production Development

Thanks to our engineering partner IAV, we are not only able to operate as a classic consultancy but can also offer both the advanced and series production development of partial and complete products as a synergy service. A long-term business case, from strategy development to series production approval, can be guaranteed in this process.

Validation up to and Including Field Support

The business case of advanced technological concepts is not necessarily positive from the word go. We help to validate all options and also support your product or service after roll-out by determining and implementing the levers for sustainable success.

Experience Acquired in More Than 600 Projects

As consulting4drive, we support our customers worldwide in implementing and speeding up projects. We are on hand to help you around the globe whether you are a new mobility provider or a classic automotive group.
