A catalyst for new vehicle technologies

The Swedish Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Centre (SHC) is a national centre of excellence for hybrid and electric vehicle technology. We unify Sweden´s competence and serve as a base for interaction between academia, industry and society. Through our activities we contribute to an energy efficient vehicle fleet and the reduction of greenhouse gases.

SHC’s driving force is to explore hybrid and electric propulsion systems, find the best technical solutions and analyze the subsystems. We carry out industry relevant research in the field and conduct studies of different hybrid and electric vehicle technologies to assess their potential. Through education, research and development, we provide strategic knowledge and competence and facilitate cooperation between industry and academia. Our activities make us a stakeholder in national and international discussions within the electric and hybrid vehicle area.
