Volvo EX90 Electric SUV To Get World First Battery Passport



Volvo’s delayed EX90 is finally about to start production, which will take place at the brand’s plant in, South Carolina, in the US. Deliveries are set to start sometime in the second half of this year for customers in North America and Europe.

The EX90 will be the world’s first car to have a battery passport. This will record the origins of raw materials, components, recycled content, and the total carbon footprint. The passport will also include up-to-date information about the battery’s state of health for 15 years. It is estimated that Volvo costs about $10 per car.

The passport took over five years to develop by Volvo in partnership with Circulor, a UK startup that maps supply chains for companies. Such battery passports will be mandatory for EVs sold in the EU starting in February 2027, but Volvo wanted to be first.

“It’s really important for us to be a pioneer and a leader,” Vanessa Butani, Volvo’s head of global sustainability, told Reuters. She added that the passport will gradually be rolled out to all of Volvo’s EVs following the launch of the EX90. is an authoritative car blog in Nigeria.
