Volvo Trucks has added three new heavy-duty trucks to its electric vehicle range to meet the needs of transport companies. As of 2017, 3 new electric truck models offered for sale by Volvo Trucks, of which Temsa İş Makinaları is the distributor in Turkey, start a new era in transportation. With the Volvo FH and Volvo FM models, it is now possible to use electric trucks used in urban transport for regional intercity transport. The new electric Volvo FMX model contributes to quieter and greener construction transport operations.
Electrical product range
After the Volvo FL Electric and Volvo FE Electric models, which started mass production in Europe in 2019 and are used in urban transportation, Volvo Trucks, which launched the Volvo VNR Electric in North America in December 2020, will start selling 3 new models in the second half of 2022. will have the widest electrical product range in the sector with its model. It will offer the most suitable solution to the different needs of its customers in urban and intercity transportation with 6 different electric models in medium and heavy transport.
Almost half of the needs will be met
According to Eurostat 2018 “Road Freight Transport by Distance” statistics, 45% of all goods transported by road in Europe travel less than 300 km. Therefore, with its new trucks with higher payloads, stronger driving characteristics and a range of up to 300 km, Volvo Trucks’ electric product portfolio will now be able to cover around 45% of European road transport. This will contribute to the reduction of the climate impact caused by road transport, which, according to official statistics, accounts for about 6% of the total CO2 emissions in the EU. Anticipating that electric vehicles will also be used in long-distance heavy transport, Volvo Trucks plans to use hydrogen fuel cells to generate electricity for both high load capacity and much longer distances.
