Volvo to launch world's first EV battery passport: Report

Swedish automaker Volvo Cars is launching the world's first EV battery passport, Reuters reported. It will keep a record of the carbon footprint, recycled content, and origins of components and raw materials for the EX90 SUV, the company told Reuters. 

The passport which took five years to develop, was made by Volvo, owned by China's Geely, in tandem with UK firm Circulor, the newswire reported. 

Battery passports will be mandatory for electric vehicles sold in the EU, from Feb 2027, showing the composition of batteries, including the origin of key materials, their carbon footprint, and recycled content, Reuters reported. 

The company's global sustainability head Vanessa Butani informed the newswire that introducing the passport roughly three years before regulations came into effect, was done to be transparent with car buyers, as the automaker targets producing fully electric cars only by 2030. 

The EX90 SUV will be delivered to customers in Europe and North America from the second half of the year, Reuters further noted. 

Volvo owners can access a simplified version of the passport using a QR code on the inside of the driver's door, the newswire said. Butani said the passport would be gradually rolled out to all of Volvo's EVs.
