BMW AG signed a deal with Goldman Sachs Group Inc.-backed Northvolt AB for 2 billion euros ($2.3 billion) of battery cells to power the German company’s electric cars.

Northvolt, a Swedish firm started by two former Tesla Inc. executives, will manufacture the cells using renewable electricity and deliver them from 2024 as part of a long-term contract, BMW said in a statement Thursday.
