Scania and Northvolt develop battery for electric trucks with a lifespan of 1.5 million km

Heavy truck manufacturer Scania and emerging EV battery powerhouse Northvolt have developed a battery for electric trucks that they say will last as long as the vehicles themselves – about 1.5 million miles.

The lithium-ion battery is the product of a five-year partnership between the two Swedish companies that began in 2017.​​At the time, Scania was looking for more robust, cost-efficient and sustainable battery cells for its heavy trucks and buses – and Northvolt was ready to deliver.

“Northvolt’s mission to build the world’s greenest batteries perfectly matched Scania’s goal to drive the shift to sustainable transport,” Scania CEO Christian Levin said in a statement.

The lithium-ion cell was produced at Northvolt’s gigafactory in Ett in northern Sweden opened last year and runs entirely on renewable hydropower and wind energy. As a result, the partners estimate that the battery has a carbon footprint of about one-third that of a comparable industry equivalent.

The cell’s long life also makes it one of the most durable and long-lasting batteries in the electric vehicle industry. Most EV batteries on the market today are single estimated to last between 150,000 and 300,000 km.

“At the start of this collaboration, Northvolt and Scania agreed on an ambitious timeline for developing a high-performance battery cell that would enable their plans to electrify heavy transport,” said Peter Carlsson, CEO and co-founder of Northvolt. “It is a great achievement for all involved to have gone through extensive development and validation phases and are now delivering cells from Northvolt Ett that exceed our initial expectations.”
