The media visibility of NEVS has been limited in recent months. It is difficult for outsiders to assess where the path under Evergrande will lead. The four questions that FKG, the Association of Swedish Auto Suppliers, asked Tilk provide an insight.
Stefan Tilk about the NEVS ecosystem.
NEVS sees itself as a mobility service provider. For the company, it's not just about offering vehicles. In light of pollution and traffic jams, smart but simple transportation solutions are important. The use of new technologies makes them possible. In the NEVS ecosystem, mobility solutions, vehicles and society will work together.
The most important current project at NEVS?
The company is working on a number of projects. One of the most important is that PONS / Sango Project. An autonomous robot taxi for the urban environment. Here, too, mobility solutions play a major role. NEVS is also working on the development of new Evergrande car models to be launched in China next year.
Does NEVS currently make cars?
NEVS currently has no series production, says Stefan Tilk. We only produce small volumes for various ongoing development projects.
How is the cooperation with Koenigsegg?
It works. NEVS carries out tests on systems and components. The idea is that some components for the new Gemera will be manufactured in Trollhättan.
Tilk, beyond NEVS
The development of the mobility service provider NEVS leaves time for further activities. Per Stefan Andersson Tilk is busy. The NEVS CEO has a stake in, or wholly owned, a number of Swedish companies. His latest commitment, beyond Sweden, is emission-free mobility. Tilk is now also a member of the board of directors of HumanForest. The e-bike start-up in London started in June.
Subscribers can cross the city emission-free with the electric bike, 20 minutes a day are free for private users. So far, 14.000 drivers have completed 42.000 journeys. HumanForest claims to have avoided 8 tons of C02. Now the company has raised £ 1.8 million to increase its fleet of bikes from 1.000 to 2.000. The new bikes are expected in London at the end of the month.
