CEVT is Zhejiang Geely Holding Group’s innovation centre in Gothenburg, Sweden, where it was established in 2013. Here, the team works on advanced research in the field of automotive technology, which requires large and powerful computer systems.
So, in 2013, Geely and Volvo together established the China Europe Vehicle Technology Center, or CEVT for short, in the heart of Volvo’s home city of Gothenburg. The goal was to produce a shared platform that could be used by Volvo, Geely and also by two new brands that would leverage the shared expertise – the electric performance brand Polestar and the youthful Lynk & Co.
We’ve built a very diverse team with over 30 different nationalities at CEVT, each with different experiences and cultures, which really gave us a unique opportunity to truly create a global product.
