Volvo Gets Serious On Electric Trucks

Volvo magazine just published a piece on electric trucks and the work they are doing. They are introducing the Volvo FL and LE electric trucks!

Electric trucks are about more than batteries and charging stations – they can help improve working conditions for drivers and increase profits for transport companies. Three Volvo Trucks experts help navigate an electric future.

Volvo FE Electric.

The Volvo FL and FE Electric are the first electric vehicles from Volvo Trucks, and will cover the majority of urban transport needs.

Since Volvo Trucks announced that its first Volvo FL and FE electric trucks were ready to hit the road, the response from the market has been swift.

“Customers called up saying: “Finally! We’ve been waiting for this!” says Anna Thordén, Product Manager, Electromobility at Volvo Trucks. “Many of the customers that get in touch with us are seeing tightening regulations where they run. Others have bought electric vehicles from market upstarts and found that they don’t offer enough support. So, as soon as anything happens to their truck, they are on their own,” she says.

Many of the customers that get in touch with us are seeing tightening regulations where they run.
