Electric cars need to have a ‘battery passport’ from 2027 to show carbon footprint and one brand already has them

Electric vehicles will soon need to have their own ‘battery passports’ to prove the origins of the raw material they contain, how much of the content is recycled and their lifecycle carbon footprint, including production and transportation.

From 2027, any new EV sold in the EU will require one – but one mainstream car brand has already introduced battery passports for its latest model.

Volvo Cars has already launched the ‘world’s first EV battery passport’ for its flagship EX90 SUV, which is due to start production in the US.

The passport has been developed in-house by Volvo, which is owned by China’s Geely, in partnership with UK startup Circulor.

It uses blockchain technology to map supply chains for companies and took over five years to develop.

Battery passports will be mandatory for all EVs sold in the European Union – and the UK – from February 2027.
