Reduce your footprint with gas-powered trucks

Are you looking for a smaller environmental footprint, high performance, and a long operating range? Take a closer look at our gas-powered trucks. Available for everything from waste collection and delivery transports to demanding long haul transport. They are fueled with either CNG or LNG – produced from either biogas or natural gas depending on availability. With a good supply of fuel globally and potential to reduce your CO2 footprint by up to 100% when using Bio-LNG and HVO, they offer a smooth transition to environmentally sustainable transport.

Our gas-powered trucks

For urban transports like waste collection and delivery transport, you can get the light and versatile Volvo FE CNG which offers an operating range up to 400 km on compressed biogas or natural gas. For regional haul and long haul transport, you can get the Volvo FM Gas Powered and Volvo FH Gas Powered with operating range up to 1000 km with high performance on liquefied biogas or natural gas.

What is CNG?

Biogas and natural gas that have been compressed to a high pressure are sold as Bio-CNG and CNG respectively. Our CNG-powered trucks offer enough power, torque and range to handle demanding delivery transport and waste collection. When using compressed biogas, the CO₂ emissions are reduced by up to 70%.

What is LNG?

Biogas and natural gas that have been liquefied by bringing it down to low temperature are sold as Bio-LNG and LNG respectively. When the gas liquefies, it reduces in volume that makes it possible to have enough fuel on board to drive long haul transports. Supported by the EU, the network of filling stations is growing throughout Europe. This means gas offers a huge potential as a substitute for diesel in trucks. When operating on Bio-LNG (biogas), the CO₂ emissions are reduced by 100%**.
