  • Next year, hauliers in Europe will be able to order all-electric versions of Volvo's heavy-duty trucks. This means that Volvo Trucks will offer a complete heavy-duty range with electric drivelines starting in Europe in 2021. Volvo Trucks' massive drive towards electrification marks a major step forwards on the road to fossil-free transport.

    `
  • Volvo Trucks and ICA Sweden, the country's leading grocery retailer, are joining forces to identify the company's transport flows that can be electrified. In the long term, the cooperation will be extended to other areas which can help to reduce the environmental impact of goods transport.

  • Tom Wilhelmsen AS is the first transport company in Norway to use fully electric tipper trucks for construction operations. The company's goal is to have a zero-emission fleet by 2025 at the latest. At a ceremony outside Oslo on 29 October, one of the first trucks was christened by Erna Solberg, the Prime Minister of Norway.

    `
  • This October, Volvo Trucks will start live tests of a fully electric transport solution for the construction industry. Two heavy duty trucks will be delivered to customer Swerock in order to meet the growing demands for less noise and emissions – especially in sensitive urban areas.

    `
  • Volvo Trucks has recently started sales of its toughest ever construction truck – the new Volvo FMX. This is the third version of the Volvo FMX and it features an entirely new cab, higher payloads and innovative safety features. With increased front axle loads of up to 20 tonnes and a 38-tonne bogie, it is built for the most demanding assignments even on very rough terrain. The new Volvo FMX is designed for future electric drivelines and certified for the use of HVO, a fossil-free alternative to diesel.

    `
  • The new heavy Volvo Trucks have been developed to maximise drivers’ opportunities to do their job effectively, safely and responsibly. All models – the Volvo FH, Volvo FH16, Volvo FM and Volvo FMX – have a new, flexible user interface with a digital instrument panel that gives the driver relevant information in each situation. In addition, the Volvo FM and FMX have new cabs that give the driver more space and improved direct visibility.

    `
  • Hauliers and transport buyers are increasingly interested in reducing their CO2 emissions and costs through the use of refrigerated liquefied gas as a fuel. For this reason, the new Volvo FH and Volvo FM trucks will have engines that run on liquefied natural gas and biogas, which offer the same high performance as diesel engines. Using biogas makes it possible to achieve carbon-neutral transport and reduce CO2 emissions by up to 100%.

    `
  • The Volvo FH with I-Save is now being launched in an even more fuel-efficient version that can cut fuel costs by up to ten percent. This marks a significant improvement of three percentage points on the previous generation.

    `
  • Volvo Trucks has launched the new Volvo FH featuring a re-imagined cab, innovative safety features and a driver focused working environment. A key aim of the new design is to give the driver a more productive, safe and comfortable life on the road.

    `
  • Volvo Trucks is introducing four new trucks, with a strong focus on the driver environment, safety and productivity. “We are really proud of this big forward-looking investment. Our aim is to be our customers’ best business partner by making them even more competitive and help them attract the best drivers in an increasingly tough market,” says Roger Alm, President Volvo Trucks. The four heavy-duty trucks; Volvo FH, FH16, FM and FMX, represent about two thirds of Volvo Trucks’ deliveries.
