Volvo completes acquisition of battery business from Proterra and Proterra operating company.

The Volvo has completed the previously announced transaction whereby the Group acquired the battery business from Proterra and Proterra Operating.

The acquisition, which was made at a purchase price of USD 210M before adjustment for inventory level at closing, includes a development center for battery modules and packs in California and an assembly factory in Greer, South Carolina.

“These assets and the skills and competence of the Proterra team are a great complement to our current footprint and enables us to accelerate our battery-electric roadmap even further,” says Lars Stenqvist, CTO Volvo.
