Volvo Trucks launches all-electric truck

Volvo Trucks launches all-electric truck”

It looks like Volvo's truck division is also keen on introducing electric verisons of their heavy haulers.

The Volvo FL Electric truck has a number of potential applications in urban conditions, including distribution services and refuse collection.

In a statement issued on Thursday (12 April), Claes Nilsson, President Volvo Trucks, said: "We're immensely proud to present the first in a range of fully electrically-powered Volvo trucks ready for regular traffic". Volvo Trucks' sister company Volvo Buses has already provided more than 4,000 electrified buses since 2010 as part of this transition, and the company has gathered expertise in electric transport which it will bring to its new trucks.

With continued efforts to emit less emissions, as well as lower the global carbon footprint, Volvo Trucks claims that the FL Electric will contribute heavily for sustainable urban development and growth.

Head of strategy for the Volvo FL and FE Jonas Odermalm says the company is also working with suppliers of charging equipment to find the best way of meeting customer needs regarding driving cycles, load capacity, uptime, range and other parameters. Hot on the heels of the Mitsubishi Fuso eCanter which arrived in the United States past year, Volvo Trucks has also revealed their take on such a vehicle with the FL Electric. Such a solution may encompass everything from route analysis and battery optimisation to servicing and financing.

The first of Volvo Truck's FL Electric range have entered operation in Gothenburg. "With attractive incentives, agreed standards and a long-term strategy for urban planning and expansion of the charging infrastructure, the process can go much faster".
