After Volvo Trucks recently started selling electric trucks for urban traffic, the manufacturer now plans to introduce heavy electric vehicles for construction and regional distribution and has developed two concept trucks.
These are a four-axle tip truck and a semi-trailer tractor. Volvo Trucks has not yet mentioned any technical details. The company plans to initially deliver the vehicles in small quantities to selected customers in Europe and says that a more comprehensive market launch will take place at a later date.
Although some experts and companies prefer fuel cell solutions for heavy trucks, Volvo Trucks also believes in battery-electric models in this class. Only in November did the Swedes start selling the FL Electric and FE Electric electric models in selected European markets.
