Ferronordic, a primary brand in the area of consutruction equipment and trucks, has announced the decision to buy a total of 32 electric trucks in Germany. It is indeed the first order of full-electric vehicles Ferronordic makes in Germany. The company decided to buy 32 medium duty electric trucks from Volvo Trucks and Renault Trucks, including 11 Volvo FL and Volvo FE Electric as well as 21 Renault Trucks D Z.E. and D Wide Z.E.

The electric trucks ordered by Ferronordic

The trucks have 4-5 batteries with a total capacity of 264-330 kWh. The chassis will be delivered during the first quarter of 2022 and will be equipped with bodies locally in Germany. The trucks will be used as demo vehicles in sales promotion and sold or rented to customers. Ferronordic will also make investments to equip its workshop network in Germany to handle electric trucks, including training and installation of charging infrastructure and other equipment. As a matter of fact, Ferronordic expects demand for battery-electric trucks in Germany to increase as result of the benefits this technology provides in terms of reduced emissions, noise and improved driver comfort. Germany also has a subsidy program to support the transition to electric transport.
