Norwegian energy transition investment company Carbon Transition ASA said Monday that its portfolio company, Power by Britishvolt Limited, has partnered with luxury car maker Aston Martin Lagonda Global Holdings PLC to develop bespoke high-performance battery cell technology.

The collaboration will see the next generation of cell and battery technology designed specifically for high-performance cars, it said.

A joint research and development team from Aston Martin and Britishvolt will design, develop, and industrialize battery packs, including bespoke modules and a battery-management system.

Aston Martin’s first plug-in hybrid model–Valhalla–will commence deliveries in early 2024, and by 2026 all new Aston Martin product lines will have an electrified powertrain option, with a target for its core portfolio to be fully electrified by 2030.
