To maintain a leading position, it is important to develop innovative products with high quality and, at the same time, high energy-efficient powertrains.
Volvo CE, as part of the Volvo Group, has started to investigate further more the hybrid technology as possible solution to reach a high level of efficiency and quality on its off-road vehicles. To support this goal, it is important to work faster to come out to the market especially in the Electromobility segment. The goal is to define our processes for projects to reach a Start of production machine (SOP) by considering the need to reiterate at the market with the first few pilot machines. The process also should enable us to fix the problems/improvement that we find in the field and release them quickly in accordance with all the process steps.
