Volvo electric trucks: record order from Switzerland

By replacing 1,000 existing Volvo FH diesel trucks with Volvo FH e-trucks using green electricity on a typical route, up to 50,000 tons of CO2 could be saved every year. “Long-term collaboration and a strong commitment to really make a difference are essential for making big CO2 reductions a reality. I’m very proud of the partnership we have developed with Holcim, and the results we are achieving together,” said Martin Lundstedt, President & CEO Volvo Group.

“The net-zero transition requires deep collaboration across value chains. We are excited to be partnering with Volvo to decarbonize our European operations’ logistics with electric fleets, advancing our goal to reach 30% of zero-emission heavy-duty trucks by 2030,” added Jan Jenisch, Chairman and CEO of Holcim.
