Geely and Volvo Cars are undertaking a significant industrial collaboration as they merge their powertrain operations into a stand-alone business in order to establish a new global supplier that will seek to develop next-generation combustion engines and hybrid powertrains.

The new organization will develop technologically advanced and efficient electric hybrid powertrains for Geely Auto, Proton, Lotus, LEVC, LYNK & Co and Volvo Cars. The new stand-alone business will also supply third-party manufacturers, providing exciting growth opportunities. The gradual electrification of the automotive industry means there will be significant ongoing demand for efficient hybrid powertrains alongside fully electric offerings. This new unit will have the resources, scale and expertise to develop these powertrains.

CEVT is an innovation and development company at the forefront of mobility. Modular development, ground-breaking virtual engineering, software development and continuous innovation enable us to deliver world-class technology. Today we deliver to different automotive brands in the Geely family such as Geely Auto, Volvo Cars, and Lynk & Co and are based at Lindholmen in Gothenburg.

This is what you will do most of the time:

  • As a CAE engineer working with 1-D simulations you will analyze powertrain systems. Components like engine, transmission, battery, electric motor, and cooling systems are all important to meet various kinds of legal and customer requirements in different driving conditions.
  • Work in our dedicated hybrid transmission team on all levels of electrification ranging from fully electric to hybrid powertrains
  • Your main task will be to use the Powertrain System (PSS) Simulation tool, and to work on concept development of new powertrain systems.
    • Produce and analyze simulation results using the simulation tool for vehicle attribute evaluation
    • Develop powertrain component models and controls in GT Suite
    • Correlate simulation results with measurement data
    • Communicate results and concept proposals with line management and powertrain teams at CEVT and GEELY and meet with our EU-based customers.

You have probably this kind of background and qualifications: 

  • M.Sc. in Mechanical-, Applied Physics-, Electromechanical Engineering or similar
  • Experience from similar tasks within the automotive area
  • Knowledge of 1D-simulations in electric as well as in hybrid vehicles is a strong merit
  • Fluent in English is a must; Swedish or Chinese language is a merit.
  • You have  excellent communication and collaboration skills.  You are inclusive teamplayer who enjoys working  in diverse environments.  We are a global company and cultural awareness, especially Asian - European culture, is especially important to us.
