NEVS Logo 2012

The original NEVS logo, introduced in 2012, was based on just a simple black lettering, saying “National Electric Vehicle Sweden”, and written in the title case of a modest sans-serif typeface, in black lines over a plain white background. The inscription was set in three lines.

2016 – now


The redesign of 2016 has created a more laconic yet progressive logo for the company. The full inscription was replaced by the abbreviation, and the regular sans-serif typeface was changed to a modern and custom font with the rounded ends of the thin black lines.
