Samsung to Provide Batteries for Volvo's Electric Trucks
July 19, 2019—Volvo Group and Samsung SDI have entered a new strategic alliance that focuses on the development and supply of batteries for Volvo’s electric trucks, reported Electrek.
Samsung will provide battery cells and modules. Volvo will use the battery pack tech in the assembly of its manufacturing operations.
Volvo delivered its first electric truck earlier this year in the form of the Volvo FL Electric. Volvo also unveiled an all-electric garbage truck as well as an autonomous, cab-less all-electric truck last year, and teased its Volvo VNR Electric semi, which it plans on testing this year before selling in North America in 2020.
