Volvo FE Hybrid

Environmental care has never been

more rewarding

We recognise that Volvo Trucks is part of the environmental problems. But we also believe that Volvo Trucks is part of the solution. The Volvo FE Hybrid is one of our responses to global warming. The parallel hybrid technique is a real fuel saver that has potential to cut carbon dioxide emissions with up to 30 percent. Better for the environment – easier on your wallet.

Made in a CO2-neutral plant

Made in a CO2-neutral plant

We look for sustainability all through the life of a truck – from the assembly line to the recycling. In 2007, Volvo Trucks was the first truck manufacturer in the world to present a CO2-neutral plant. Today, several of our plants are CO2-neutral and all of them strive towards using renewable sources for energy such as sun, wind, water and biomass instead of fossil fuels. This means that your Volvo FE Hybrid has been built almost without impacting the environment with carbon dioxide emissions.

Conscious driving matters most

Conscious driving matters most

When it comes to reducing emissions, the fact is that roughly 90 percent of the environmental impact caused by a truck occurs during the truck’s usage. That’s the cold hard truth. Now, the good news is that Volvo Trucks can offer you plenty of help in order to reduce that impact. And since most of them concern fuel savings, there is a cash reward in it too.

90 percent of your Volvo FE Hybrid can be recycled. This is possible because Volvo Trucks labels bits and pieces to allow for convenient identification and dismantling. Also, to make sure that your Volvo FE Hybrid – the hybrid batteries included – can be recycled and re-used, Volvo Trucks renovates used parts, provides dismantling manuals, operates dismantling facilities and have partnerships for the collection.

Volvo Trucks online application Footprint Calculation contains heaps of information about the factors that affect the environment throughout your Volvo FE Hybrid’s entire lifecycle. It also lets you find out how much of an impact your specific truck – or fleet – has on the environment and lets you compare your results to other trucks.
