CAR - Creating Automotive Renewal

Project description

CAR will develop systems solutions for the implementation and scale-up of electric vehicle systems. The approach will comprise vehicles, charging posts, payment solutions, business models, and information and discussions with companies and organizations that are interested in investing in fleets of electric vehicles. The goal is to work with several organizations with a potential to invest in ten or more electric vehicles and together with representatives of the organizations explore opportunities, identify obstacles, and drive the process forward toward realization of investments. The project will have access to means to co-finance parts of systems development that can be driven by public organizations. This could mean investments in charging infrastructure, software development, or pilot testing of applications.
CAR will work together with national authorities and leading players in the field of electric vehicle systems, car companies, and organizations that develop software and services. It will be a triple helix project in that it will pool the resources of partners from different sectors of society in order to develop strong business platforms and public-private collaboration networks that can be expanded over the years after the project. The project will also develop a competence resource in the form of a strategy setting network that will continue to work with systems and business related aspects of the large scale transformation of transport systems.
