Unique co-operation on environmental cars: Volvo Cars and Vattenfall to develop new plug-in hybrid

Vattenfall and the Volvo Car Corporation are launching an industrial joint venture partnership to introduce plug-in hybrids on the market. The technology will considerably lower the environmental impact from traffic.

The Volvo Car Corporation will manufacture the cars and Vattenfall will develop charging systems and supply the cars with electricity.

Mannheimer Swartling advised the Volvo Car Corporation on legal matters regarding the co-operation. The firm’s team included Clas Nyberg (corporate) and Niklas Sjöblom and Johan Öberg (intellectual property).
