Ceer, Saudi Arabia’s first electric vehicle brand, has collaborated with Siemens Digital Industries Software to accelerate Ceer’s digital transformation and empower its engineers to design and build truly next-generation vehicles using the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of industry software for the design, development, validation, and manufacturing of Ceer’s electric vehicles.

Ceer is the first Saudi automotive brand to produce electric vehicles in Saudi Arabia, and will offer a range of vehicles to consumers in Saudi Arabia and the MENA region, including sedans and sports utility vehicles. The company, which is a joint venture between PIF and Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. (“Foxconn”), will license component technology from BMW for use in the vehicle development process.
