Volvo Cars Group is one of the most well-known and respected car brands in the world. Northvolt is a leading supplier of sustainable, high-quality battery cells and systems, dedicated to deliver the world’s greenest lithium-ion battery. Together, we have formed a joint venture to power the next generation of pure electric Volvo and Polestar cars.

Few industries offer as great an opportunity for career growth and personal development as the new European battery industry. In working for this joint venture, you do not only develop skills that are highly sought after in the global automotive and industrial sector but are also making a concrete impact to create a climate-neutral way of life for future generations.

The gigafactory will be one of the largest cell production facilities in Europe. With construction set to begin in 2023, the plant will have a potential annual cell production capacity of up to 50 gigawatt hours (GWh) and thereby enable a supply of batteries for approximately half a million Volvo and Polestar cars per year. As the battery makes up a large part of an electric vehicle’s total life cycle carbon emissions, this foundation for clean battery production forms a key basis for Volvo Cars’ aspirations for sustainable manufacturing and a fully climate-neutral manufacturing network.
