Volvo Cars says it is investing in the in-house design and development of electric motors for its next-generation models as the company aims to become a fully electric car maker. To this end, it has opened a brand-new electric motor lab in Shanghai, China, which comes in addition to ongoing e-motor development in Gothenburg, Sweden, and battery labs in China and Sweden.

Bringing the development of electric motors in-house will, Volvo hopes, enable its engineers to further optimize electric motors and the entire electric driveline, to make further gains in terms of energy efficiency and overall performance.
