Electrifying most of the good transport: Volvo Trucks is precisely ready for this target. According to this vision, at the beginning of 2021, the international player presented three new full-electric models for heavy-duty tasks and a broad variety of transport requirements.
What do they hope? In the EU, almost half of all transports on truck might be electrified in the next future, reducing the climatic impact of road freights.
And it is not utopia. The course is right: with the addition of three new models, the electric range by Volvo Trucks pursues such guideline.
«More and more transport companies –Roger Alm, President of Volvo Trucks, stated- are becoming aware of the immediate need of their electrification course, both to protect the environment and to face competitiveness reasons, to satisfy the requirements of the customers asking for sustainable shipments. The broad diversified offer by Volvo Trucks decisively enables many more transport companies to shift to electric».
Let us go into detail: the new electric Volvo FMX model is subjected to innovation to make transport operations more silent and greener in the yard sector.
The production of the new electric models for Europe will start in the second half of 2022 and will join Volvo FL Electric and Volvo FE Electric for urban transports, which have been mass-produced since 2019 for the same market.
The new products have higher loading capacities, more powerful kinematic chains and maximum autonomy of 300 km, so satisfying the requirements of around 45% of all goods currently transported in Europe, according to what highlighted by Eurostat statistical data.
