Connected Electric Vehicle Optimized for Life, Value, Efficiency and Range


The current generation of electric vehicles have made significant progress during the recent years, however they have still not achieved the user acceptance needed to support broader main-stream market uptake. These vehicles are generally still too expensive and limited in range to be used as the first car for a typical family. Long charging times and uncertainties in range prediction are common as further barriers to broader market success. For this reason the CEVOLVER project takes a user-centric approach to create battery-electric vehicles that are usable for comfortable long day trips whilst the installed battery is dimensioned for affordability. Furthermore the vehicles will be designed to take advantage of future improvements in the fast-charging infrastructure that many countries are now planning.
