Your new truck can help your sustainability goals
A new range of battery-powered trucks will be available in Europe for regional transportation and construction, with a range of up to 300kms.
Volvo are continuing their commitment to sustainability by the production of more sustainable models of trucks.
“By rapidly increasing the number of heavy-duty electric trucks, we want to help our customers and transport buyers to achieve their ambitious sustainability goals,” said Roger Alm, president of Volvo Trucks. “We’re determined to continue driving our industry towards a sustainable future.”
Volvo Trucks started manufacturing the Volvo FL Electric and Volvo FE Electric in 2019. These are electric trucks intended for city distribution and refuse operations, primarily in Europe. Sales of the Volvo VNR Electric, a truck for regional transport, will start in North America next month.
Electric vehicles for demanding and heavy long-haul operations will follow within the next 10 years, Volvo says. These will be battery-electric and fuel cell electric trucks with a longer range. Volvo Trucks aims to start selling electric trucks powered by hydrogen fuel cells in the second half of this decade. Volvo Trucks’ objective is for its entire product range to be fossil-free by 2040.
