What we do

CEVT is a joint engineering and development centre for future B- and C-segment cars, addressing the needs of both Volvo Cars and Geely Auto. CEVT covers vital aspects of passenger car development – from the joint architecture, to power train and drive line components, to top hat engineering as well as the vehicles’ exterior design. The modular strategy will deliver on the premium aspects that Volvo Cars requires, as well as on Geely Auto’s demands, in order to compete in the automotive market.

There are four areas of expertise within CEVT: 

  • Architecture development: creating new, modular architectures for B- and C-segment cars.
  • Top hat development: creating complete, customer focused vehicles based on the new architectures.
  • Shared component development: creating technical solutions applicable to both brands and customer profiles.
  • Complete vehicle design: creating vehicles with design that expands the customer segment.

 

CEVT’s work processes follow a modular technology approach. The benefits of this approach are most visible in the architectural development. The main benefits are: 

  • It can satisfy the market’s demands of different car models, as well as different customer requirements.
  • It capitalizes on volumes and provides cost benefits for us as a company, as well as the customer.
  • Through its intelligent build-up, it can easily adapt to new customer preferences and new trends, while meeting the requirement of short product cycles.
  •  It provides the customer with the latest technologies and a higher product quality.

 

The modular technology approach is based on the following principles: 

  • A large amount of well defined interfaces
  • Scalable auto, module and component solutions:
    • A scaling strategy, for instance offer variations on the overall length, width, height, wheel base, wheel size, etc.
    • A strategy for performance steps on a module level, for instance a front module with different performance levels for safety, handling, noise, and vibrations
    • A strategy for performance steps on a system/component level, for instance a climate system that is either manual or automatic, that has one or several temperature zones, as well as air quality filters.

Vision

Strengthen competitiveness of Geely Auto and Volvo Cars through the development of world-class vehicle architectures and new technologies.

Mats Fägerhag, CEO

As far back as I can remember I have had a passion for cars. I consider myself lucky since working at CEVT allows me to combine this passion with my desire to innovate. Having spent most of my career in the automotive industry I have gained considerable experience in various organisations and development projects, and it is evident to me that we are breaking new ground here at CEVT.

The riverside location is undeniably beautiful, but above all what attracted Ericsson, Semcon, Volvo, Chalmers, SVT and over 330 other companies here is an idea. Lindholmen Science Park was founded with the goal of bringing together business, education and the public sector. The water, the view, the restaurants, the ease of access and the pulsing international environment are really just icing on the cake.
