Electrification of the automobile is providing a jolt for the local Metro Detroit economy. The latest shock of investment is the FEV Group’s new Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Development Center in Auburn Hills.
FEV develops advanced powertrain and vehicle technologies. It has been investing in expanding its Auburn Hills campus over the last two years. The latest investment ($8 million) is dedicated to testing the hybrid and electric vehicle parts.
The company has a staff of 300 people at its Auburn Campus. That centralized engineering brain power played a key part in convincing FEV to continue to invest in its new sustainable technology there. The facility will test all sorts of state-of-the-art, electric-based vehicles and is believed to be the home of the first PHEV charging system in Michigan.
FEV is an international powertrain and vehicle engineering company with a staff of more than 1,800 highly skilled specialists at advanced technical centers on three continents.
