Volvo has chosen Samsung SDI to provide battery cells and modules for its electric trucks.
Martin Lundstedt, CEO of Volvo, says: “The alliance with Samsung SDI is an important next step on our journey to offering the world's most truly sustainable transport systems and fossil-free alternatives in our vehicles.”
Volvo has also taken steps to support its electric fleet operations in the US. Last November, the company entered into an agreement with Greenlots to install electric vehicle charging infrastructure for vehicles operating out of warehouses in Southern California.
