The CEVOLVER project started on 1 November 2018 and run until end of 2022.
The project was funded by the European Commission in the Research and Innovation Action Programme.
10 Organisations from 6 different countries worked together to develop battery-electric vehicle that are usable for comfortable long day trips with an affordable battery.


  1. Ensure a leap forward in user’s confidence, functionalities and energy efficiency of future EVs.
    1. Realise novel connected functionalities as reliable range prediction, Eco-routing and Eco-driving integrated together with Assured & Fast Charging;
    2. Achieve significant energy savings and enable long(er) distance trips with minimal additional travel time due to charging;
    3. Leverage user convenience and user’s confidence and largely increase the trust in future EVs
  2. Ensure the affordability of future electric vehicles by a user centric development approach
    1. Improve affordability and consider actual vehicle usage patterns to verify the design specification of the components;
    2. Refine or derive methodologies for supporting electric vehicle(subsystem) simulation models;
    3. Provide innovative solutions to increase sales volumes and to open up further cost reductions in mass production.
  3. Validation of advanced components and systems, novel connected control strategies and functionalities
    1. Implement & integrate selected components and systems, the connected control strategies and functionalities into an early assessment prototyping vehicles (BOSCH) & demonstrators (CRF, FORD).
  4. Assessment of the impact of the technical advancements of CEVOLVER and their applicability in different EV types and vehicle classes
    1. Assess the impact of CEVOLVER innovations in terms of energy saving potential, user experience and market potential (incl. cost reduction in mass production);
    2. Prove the feasibility of ensuring durability and lifetime of specific vehicle components through use of optimal connected control strategies.
