As part of a strategy to increase capacity for integrated software testing, Volvo Cars has opened a new software testing center in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Fully electric Volvo cars, according to the company, are defined by software – as evidenced by new models such as EX90 SUV and the EX30 SUV, which are improved through regular OTA software updates.
At a size of 22,000m2 and representing an initial investment of around Skr300m (US$27m), the testing facility is the new flagship in Volvo’s network of engineering centers and tech hubs around the world. Other software test centers are located in Lund, Sweden, and Shanghai, China.
The auto maker states that in-house software development and testing is key to achieving its strategic ambitions, which include being “an industry leader in new technology” and a fully electric car company by 2030.
