Large-scale production will start in 2021 at the Northvolt Ett gigafactory. Northvolt Ett cell manufacturing is powered by 100% renewable energy and embraces the principles and practices of a circular economy at every opportunity. Northvolt is sourcing materials from responsible suppliers, and ensuring that their supply and distribution chain is free from conflict, child labor, and human rights abuse.
The initial phase of the partnership between CAKE and Northvolt will occur through 2021. Over the next year, teams will be developing the technology, engineering product, and launching the initial phase of product field testing. The goal is to bring the Northvolt battery cells for CAKE’s future battery technology to market with various CAKE motorcycle models during the first half of 2022.
