Volvo Trucks Bringing Heavy-Duty Electric Trucks to Market

Volvo Trucks says it is kicking off commercial sales of its Volvo FL and Volvo FE electric trucks in selected European markets.

“Global urbanization requires urban logistics and truck transport with zero emissions and less noise with increasing urgency,” says Jonas Odermalm, vice president for Volvo Trucks’ electromobility product line. “With the Volvo FL Electric and Volvo FE Electric, we are able to meet both the strong environmental demands as well as the high commercial requirements of our customers. Volvo Trucks’ solutions will be based on individual business needs that consider a number of parameters, such as driving cycles, load capacity and route analysis, to use the battery capacity in the most efficient way possible.”

Volvo FL Electric and Volvo FE Electric were developed in close collaboration with selected customers operating in Gothenburg, Sweden. Feedback has been very positive, and the drivers involved in the collaboration are particularly impressed by the responsive driveline, seamless acceleration and how quiet the trucks are.
