  • Patent number: 10840489
    Abstract: For improved attachment of an energy accumulator to an underbody of a motor vehicle, an attachment device has a top side that is designed to be attached to the underbody via attachment fasteners and an underside that is designed to be connected to a top side of the energy accumulator. The underside of the attachment device and the top side of the energy accumulator are integrally bonded by an adhesive at least in a region remote from outer edges of the top side of the energy accumulator.

  • Publication number: 20200223304
    Abstract: A method for integrating a high-voltage accumulator having at least one accumulator module into a support structure of a motor vehicle, wherein the following is performed: providing a housing part, which has a base plate and a frame-like edge extending around the base plate; arranging the at least one accumulator module on the housing part and/or on the support structure; arranging the edge of the housing part below and on a frame structure formed of supports of the support structure; and fastening the housing part to the support structure. An accumulator housing for the at least one accumulator module is thus formed. A housing interior of the accumulator housing is delimited by a bottom part of the support structure, which bottom part covers the frame structure toward a passenger compartment of the motor vehicle, and by the housing part and the frame structure.

  • Patent number: 10293715
    Abstract: ISOFIX systems are used for fastening child seats in a motor vehicle. A motor vehicle is provided in which the ISOFIX restraint systems have adequate crash safety despite being longer than customary ISOFIX securing clamps. This is achieved in that at least individual ISOFIX securing clamps have an overall length lying within a range of 50 mm to 120 mm, and a reinforcing component is mounted on each ISOFIX securing clamp at a body-side end of each ISOFIX securing clamp. Each reinforcing component has a height which corresponds to a length of longitudinal portions of each ISOFIX securing clamp, and a body-side portion of the longitudinal portions of each ISOFIX securing clamp is supported by each reinforcing component.
