Future Adaptable Design Electrical Vehicle by Circular Business models, FAD-EV

The project aims to develop prototypes for profitable circular business models with associated design specifications for future-adapted heavy electric vehicles and electric cars for more electric vehicle miles.

The purpose of the project is to develop prototypes for profitable circular business models with associated design specifications for future-adapted heavy electric vehicles and electric cars which require an adaptive design to get more transport kilometres, be used more efficiently and be upgraded with new energy and resource efficient technologies.

The project can contribute to making it more interesting to invest in electric vehicles when the vehicle is sold as a service, which is expected to lead to increased introduction of electric vehicles and promote the Swedish vehicle industry.

Project goals

For electric cars and heavy electric trucks, respectively:

  • Estimate the required product life / mileage for a vehicle sold as a transport service
  • Identify requirements for the product architecture to achieve the desired service life
  • Develop a business model that can make a product and service system with future-adaptive products become both profitable and achieve the desired energy / resource efficiency
  • Publication of two scientific articles

Implementation

The project is led by RISE and carried out in collaboration with Volvo Trucks, Volvo Technology, Polestar and IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute

The project aims at research and development on the application of life cycle analysis (LCA) in a circular adjustment. The work is carried out in connection with the other circular business model and future adaptive design (CBMI-FAD) development where the process of exchanging information between LCA and the rest of the CBMI process is evaluated.

 

The project consists of five work packages (WP1-5).

WP1: Assessment of longevity requirements based on environmental / climate goals fossil-free vehicle fleet

WP2: Development of customer offering and methods / working methods for detailed business modeling

WP3: Identification of product-related business risks and redesign for manageable and reduced risks

WP4: Organizational influence and changeability

WP5: Project management, documentation and communication
