The Northvolt supplied batteries will be used to power future Volvo and Polestar electric cars and the new XC60 will be one of the key ones among them.

The luxury car brand plans to convert at least half of its total production into pure electric vehicles by the middle of this decade. Then by 2030, Volvo aims to become a completely electric vehicle brand. The next-generation XC60 could be the model leading that green revolution in Volvo's lineup. This will also be the first model to get Northvolt's new generation battery.
