Volvo Trucks will offer a complete heavy-duty range with electric drivelines starting in Europe in 2021.
The company is running tests of the electric heavy-duty Volvo FH, Volvo FM and Volvo FMX trucks, which will be used for regional transport and urban construction operations in Europe.
These trucks will have a gross combination weight of up to 44 tonnes. Depending on the battery configuration the range could be up to 300 km.
Sales will begin next year and volume production will start in 2022.
Volvo Trucks started manufacturing the Volvo FL Electric and Volvo FE Electric in 2019. These are electric trucks intended for city distribution and refuse operations, primarily in Europe.
In North America, sales of the Volvo VNR Electric, a truck for regional transport, will start on December 3, 2020.
