Volvo Trucks has launched its first all-electric truck, which will be used in urban distribution and refuse operations.
The Volvo Fl Electric has begun regular operation with two customers in Gothenburg, and sales and series production will begin in Europe next year.
With a range of around 185 miles on a full charge, the first two Volvo FL Electric trucks will be operated by refuse collection and recycling company Renova and haulage firm TGM.
Claes Nilsson, president, Volvo Trucks, said: “We are immensely proud to present the first in a range of fully electrically-powered Volvo trucks ready for regular traffic.
“With this model, we are making it possible for cities that aim for sustainable urban development to benefit from the advantages of electrified truck transports.”
