Volvo Trucks expands its e-truck range by adding some more rigid versions to the FH, FM and FMX models. According to the Swedish manufacturer, the new additions allow customers to handle a wide range of transport assignments with zero tailpipe emissions and less noise.
Volvo Trucks: a broader e-truck range
The new heavy rigid trucks can be designed to carry electric superstructures for a wide range of specialized transport assignments, including goods distribution, refuse collection and construction work. Production of the new variants will begin in the first quarter of 2023. The new rigid trucks have a battery capacity between 180-540 kWh.
“With these new, electric trucks we are making it easier than ever for even more customers to go electric, and for cities to shift to zero-emission vehicles for virtually all transport flows. Our customers can have these trucks custom-built for their specific operation, to cut emissions while getting the same functionality as the diesel truck they are using today,” explained Roger Alm, President of Volvo Trucks.
