Noise means strain on both people and the environment. Electric trucks make it possible to significantly lower noise levels and noise-related pollution.
Cleaner city air
Electromobility is an important part of Volvo Trucks’ ambition to move towards our vision of zero emissions and we are working with cities around the world that are actively seeking to improve air quality.
Better traffic flow
Quieter trucks can make it possible to perform a wide range of assignments during off-peak hours such as early mornings, late evenings or even at night. This reduces the burden on the roads during peak traffic hours.
Better working days
Electric trucks make life easier for drivers. A quieter drive along with zero exhaust emissions are the basis for a significantly improved working environment both in and outside the vehicle. And since an electric truck provides full power and torque from standstill as well as significantly lower driveline induced vibrations, it’s also a pleasant driving experience.
