Volvo Group and Samsung SDI have entered into a strategic alliance to develop battery packs for Volvo Group’s electric trucks.

Working together with Samsung SDI, Volvo Group aims to accelerate the speed of development and strengthen the long-term capabilities and assets within electromobility, to the benefit of customers in different truck segments and markets.

The alliance will cover joint development of battery packs specifically developed for Volvo Group’s truck applications.

“Volvo Group is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of commercial vehicles. With electromobility the increasing needs for transport will be done in a cleaner and quieter way which opens up new possibilities for our customers and society as a whole. The alliance is an important next step on our journey towards offering the world’s most truly sustainable transport system with fossil-free alternatives for our commercial vehicles,” says Martin Lundstedt, President and CEO of the Volvo Group.
