DRIVING PROGRESS IN ELECTROMOBILITY

 

Electromobility plays a key role on the road to fossil-free transports.

Our electric trucks, based on well-proven technology within the Volvo Group, are already rolling on the streets in real operations.

The electrified transport solutions are helping transport operators to significantly reduce emissions and noise. 

We're determined to continue driving our industry towards a sustainable future

2019

First Volvo FL Electric and Volvo FE Electric delivered to transport operators for city distribution and refuse operations. In North America, sales of the Volvo VNR Electric, a truck for regional transport, began in 2020.

2021

Battery-electric trucks for operations from medium-duty city distribution to heavy-duty regional transports are offered in Europe. This marks a major step to speed up the shift towards fossil-free transports.

 

2040

Our objective is to offer a fossil-free product range by 2040, where electromobility forms an important part. Battery-electric vehicles and fuel cell electric vehicles with a longer range will be key on this journey.

Advantages of electromobility

Lower noise and emission levels

Electric trucks produce no tailpipe emissions (NOx, PM) and have a very low total climate impact when electricity from renewable sources is used. They are also far quieter than conventional trucks.

New transport assignments

Operating an electric vehicle can enable transportation in cities at night thanks to low noise levels, which means avoiding peak hour congestion. Even indoor deliveries are possible – with low noise and zero exhaust emissions.

Improved driver environment

Electric trucks make life easier for drivers. The absence of low-frequency noise and exhaust emissions leads to a significant improvement in the driver’s working environment.
