Volvo Trucks – Our first fully electric trucks in action


Electric trucks are no longer
just a vision of the future. They’re here and now. Volvo’s fully electric-powered trucks, Volvo FL and Volvo FE Electric, pave the way for a cleaner,
quieter urban environment, to reduce climate impact and equally decrease congestion
and improve transport efficiency. Volvo electric trucks
will improve life in cities due to less noise and less emissions, and the working environment for truckers
will improve as well. Volvo’s electric trucks
are fully commercial vehicles built for distribution, waste management and other inner-city traffic work
with total weights of up to 27 tons. Each truck is optimised for its task with the appropriate battery capacity
and charging system. So why drive electric? There are many good reasons. No exhaust emissions. Less disturbing noises. High energy efficiency
and low climate impact. Yes, practically none at all if the batteries are charged
with renewable energy. Features that create completely
new opportunities for cities to grow and develop in a sustainable way. Housing can be built in new places and more transportation
can be accomplished at night, in order to reduce congestion
during peak traffic. Volvo FL and FE electric trucks
will be able to reduce congestion. by having a high load capacity so we can replace many small trucks. The technology used in Volvo’s
electric trucks is well proven, verified in over 4,000
electrified Volvo buses. The trucks recharge via fast-charging
stations in one or two hours or by industrial main supply overnight. The truck’s braking energy
is also utilised. The batteries operate
one or two electric motors that apply the energy efficiently
all the way to the drive wheels. It’s not just the urban environment
benefiting from electrified vehicles. Drivers’ working environment
is also improved. Less noise means less stress
and reduced fatigue. Exhaust-free operation
provides cleaner air. And the electric powertrain provides
fast response and smooth gearing, making the job
more efficient and enjoyable. And the journey has just begun.

    The only thing that i disagree with is that electric trucks make the job more enjoyable as the sound of a trucks diesel engine means a lot to me. It is a trademark of those vehicles.

  14. Patrick Sienkowski says:

    As long as they don't make a self driving truck

  15. Moogle Google says:

    The thing that is most important for companies that will buy those trucks are how much they can save in $ not if they are Eco friendly or less noisy or better for the workers, the most important thing is COST SAVINGS you forgot to add, or did you actually forget…

    Next long awaited step are new batterys with higher capacity or using less rare materials.
    The electric drivetrain otherwise is a perfect solution.

    How can an electric vehicle improve congestion? Maybe nose congestion, because it wont liberate gases (which are very clean with new cathalizers) near me. But the power obviously come from somewhere, which is some fabric using petrol.

  29. Rux Tkk says:

    This should had been done 50 years back,,its not like they adopted the technology just yesterday…….. petroleum industry is to be blame,they will kills us all some day

  30. detroit ghetto says:

    Electric motors may not have a soul but who cares if it doesn't smoke, cleaner, simple system, and not as noisy. Have you had a situation when you are kinda stuck behind garbage truck who is slow but also is choking you with its soot smoke? Than this is it!

  31. S1lent Toad says:

    You forgot to mention the low maintenance costs!

  32. Idf Matkal says:

  35. Burldisco says:

    Buy a Volvo and experience air leaks. Also Volvo uses really thin wire. If a wire should be gauge 12 Volvo will use 14. Can’t tell how many times I have had to repair wires..

  36. Paname514 says:

    Fabriqué en France 🇫🇷 par l'usine Renault-Volvo 🙂

    Maintenant il faut produire en grande série.

  37. Paname514 says:

    Made in France 🇫🇷 at the Renault-Volvo factory

    Wonder if we'll ever see these in ETS2; still waiting on that tuning pack.
    Much as I would love to get and drive a real one, ETS2 has been the closest thing.

  43. Adam Vaughn says:

    My 07 vnl is falling apart. Gimme an all electric road truck or im getting a Tesla

  44. DeezNutz Yeah says:

    Well when it’s made and out of the factory it’s better for the environment but making one (normal car battery, not a truck) is as bad for the environment as driving thousands of kilometers with diesel or gasoline so I think you should use LBG (liquified biogas) instead

    Here’s why:

    It has a little bit more energy than diesel and gasoline

    Its cheaper (biogas is measured in kg and not liters. One kg is about 1,5 liters gas or diesel)

    It almost doesn’t emit any CO2

    And I like the engine sound

  45. Héctor Fabian De La Barra says:

    Now I would like to see electric expédition trucks !!!
