Polestar’s Dennis Nobelius (top right) and Atlas Copco’s Lars Eklöf discussed new models for manufacturing partnership

The pace of development and ramp up in electric vehicle and battery production requires OEMs, suppliers and technology partners to work together more closely to plan and co-create production processes. At Polestar, COO Dennis Nobelius anticipates that battery chemistries will change every two years, while the need to manage over-the-air updates will require new processes in software validation. The carmaker is also pushing its suppliers to meet its ambitions to not only offset emissions but to eliminate them from production and supply chains.

At supplier Atlas Copco, Lars Eklöf points to the importance of data process management and analysis, for example in battery cell and enclosure production.

In all cases, the power of partnerships is becoming evermore apparent in achieving EV manufacturing targets and sustainability goals.
