This new factory is powered by fossil-free energy, so don’t expect high-rise smoke emitting harmful fumes


Volvo, in partnership with Northvolt, a supplier of sustainable battery cells and related systems, announced Friday that it will open a new joint venture manufacturing plant.  The facility is located in the automaker’s home town of Gothenburg, Sweden, in Torresland.  The unit is expected to begin manufacturing batteries for Volvo and Polestar vehicles by 2025.

The factory, which will be strategically located near Volvo’s largest assembly plant, is the result of a combined investment of about $ 3.3 billion from two companies of about 30 billion Swedish kronas.  That cost, announced in December, also includes a new research and development centre.  That facility in Gothenburg will start operating this year.

  Real production battery cells probably don’t look this fancy.


  Construction of the new factory at Volvo and Northvolt will begin in 2023.  Once it is up and running, the plant is expected to employ 3,000 people.  Beyond that, it must be capable of building 50 gigawatt hours worth of batteries per year, making it one of Europe’s largest cell-production plants.  Putting that figure in context, there are enough electron reservoirs to power approximately 500,000 EVs.  As an eco-friendly premium automaker, squeezing things and burning Volvo credentials, the plant is powered by fossil-free energy, so don’t expect it to have high-fumes, emitting fumes.

  In the coming years, Volvo will require all the batteries it can get.  Although it only offers a couple of pure-electric vehicles today, as well as hybrid smattering, automakers are urging to fully electrify its portfolio by 2030, which is roughly two product life cycles, practically blinking in the automotive industry.  With the help of Northvolt, this new battery plant is the cornerstone of Volvo’s global manufacturing footprint.
