Woburn, MA May 1, 2018

Terrafugia Inc. announced its partnership with CEVT (China Euro Vehicle Technology AB) to collaborate on a variety of developments to bring the first flying car to market. Zhejiang Geely Holding Group (Geely Holding) acquired Terrafugia in Fall 2017, extending access to collaborate with its subsidiary companies.

"The combination of CEVT's advanced engineering capabilities and automotive experience with Terrafugia's expertise in innovative air mobility will take Geely to the sky providing vehicles for both ground and air transportation," said Chris Jaran, CEO of Terrafugia.

CEVT is supporting Terrafugia's first vehicle, the Transition®, with the development of a clutch-box, advanced CAE analysis and high-tech safety systems. With this relationship, Terrafugia will benefit from the long automotive engineering experience and expertise in Gothenburg and Sweden.

CEVT was established by Geely Holding in 2013 as an engineering and development center for future C-segment cars addressing the needs of both Volvo Cars and Geely Auto Group. Today, CEVT is Geely's leading innovation and development center in Sweden.

"At CEVT we have some of the best skilled resources in the mobility engineering disciplines. We have until now mainly been focusing on developing amazing new cars. With this new collaboration we see a huge advantage and opportunity taking our experience into new fields of mobility transportation. Terrafugia is a very exciting project for CEVT and we feel proud to be given the opportunity to support this collaboration", says Mats Fägerhag, CEO of CEVT in Sweden.
