The automotive industry is transforming more than ever - inside and out. This is also true for the center console, the heart of the interior, with new prerequisites gained by the flat battery floor.
With a changing market, the customer expectations are set to change as well. To stay competitive and continue the heritage of a premium interior experience, Volvo is now looking for students who will look at the area with fresh eyes.


The main scope of this thesis is to define a modular set-up for a center console which caters to the BEV customers’ expectations. Preferably, the modularity should be scalable for different car sizes as well as premium levels and types of ownership.
