Volvo Group to acquire Proterra battery business

Proterra Inc. filed Chapter 11 in the U.S

Volvo Group has been selected as the winning bidder in an auction for the business and assets of the Proterra Powered business unit at a purchase price of US $210 million.

As reported previously, Proterra Inc. and Proterra Operating Company Inc. are in a voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy process in the U.S.

The transaction between Proterra Inc. and Proterra Operating Company as sellers and Volvo is subject to approval by the bankruptcy court in the US. In addition, closing of the transaction, which is expected early 2024, will be subject to merger clearance and certain other conditions.

The assets to be acquired include a development center for battery modules and packs in California and an assembly factory in South Carolina.

With this acquisition, Volvo Group said it will complement the current, and accelerate its future, battery-electric road map.

The company said the transaction has no material impact on the Volvo Group financial performance.
