Project in Focus: CEVOLVER
The charging time, range and affordability are key factors for the broader market uptake of battery-electric vehicles. Therefore, the CEVOLVER project takes a user-centric approach to create solutions for comfortable long-distance trips while assuring affordability with a well-dimensioned battery. The developed demonstrator vehicles will be capable of using the new fast-charging standard.
The CEVOLVER project consortium will reduce the energy consumption of future battery-electric vehicles by developing new thermal and energy management systems. In the second step, CEVOLVER will use connectivity to provide the driver with a more accurate range-prediction and assistance to find the most effective route for the long-distance trip. The objective is to efficiently guide the driver while considering available fast-charging infrastructure and low energy consumption. All innovations will be implemented and demonstrated at the end of the project.
This project is co-funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 824295.
