Scania, Northvolt EV battery can take a truck nearly 1M miles

The carbon footprint of the cell is approximately one-third that of a comparable industry reference cell, Northvolt says.

Northvolt and Scania say they have unveiled a jointly-developed lithium-ion battery cell for heavy electric vehicles that has the capacity to power trucks for 1.5 million kilometers (approx. 932,000 miles) – equivalent to the truck’s whole lifetime in many cases. Produced with fossil-free electricity in northern Sweden, the cell’s carbon footprint is approximately one-third that of a comparative industry reference, the companies say.

The cell is currently being produced at the Northvolt Ett gigafactory in northern Sweden. Later this year, Scania will inaugurate a new battery factory in Södertälje, Sweden, where battery cells will be assembled into battery packs for the start of production of heavy-duty electric trucks.

Northvolt says Northvolt Ett is powered by 100% fossil-free electricity generated by hydropower and wind power. Due to the fossil-free energy and integration of additional sustainable production features at Northvolt Ett, the estimated carbon footprint of the cell at full serial production is approximately one-third that of a comparative industry reference cell, the company says.
