Northvolt AB assembled its first battery cell at a factory in Skelleftea in northern Sweden, meeting its deadline to start production at the site before the year is over.  

Made on Dec. 28, the lithium-ion cell is the first to have been designed and produced at a large-scale factory by a homegrown European company, Northvolt said Wednesday.
