Volvo Trucks begins EV sales

13 November 2019

Sales of Volvo Trucks’ new electric FL and FE models have started in selected markets across Europe.

Designed to meet increasing demand for sustainable transport solutions in city environments, the new trucks will initially be sold in Sweden, Norway, Germany, Switzerland, France and the Netherlands.

But plans are also in place to roll-out into the UK and Ireland at a later date, still to be confirmed.

Jonas Odermalm, VP Product Line Electromobility at Volvo Trucks, said, “Global urbanisation requires urban logistics and truck transport with zero emissions and less noise with increasing urgency.

“With the Volvo FL Electric and Volvo FE Electric we are able to meet both the strong environmental demands as well as the high commercial requirements of our customers.”

The Volvo FL Electric and Volvo FE Electric were developed in close collaboration with selected customers operating in Gothenburg, Sweden.

According to the brand, the feedback from drivers has been overwhelmingly positive.

Production of the series is planned for March 2020.
