Volvo Trucks reveals new FE Electric

Volvo FE Electric

Volvo Trucks has unveiled the FE Electric, its second all-electric model to be announced.

The Volvo FE Electric is designed for city distribution and refuse operations, with gross weights of up to 27 tonnes.

“With the introduction of the Volvo FE Electric we have a comprehensive range of electrically powered trucks for city operations and are taking yet another strategic step forward in the development of our total offer in electrified transport solutions.

“This opens the door to new forms of co-operation with cities that target to improve air quality, reduce traffic noise, and cut congestion during peak hours since commercial operations can instead be carried out quietly and without tail pipe exhaust emissions early in the morning or late at night,” says Claes Nilsson, president Volvo Trucks.

The new Volvo FE Electric will be offered in several variants for different types of transport assignments.

It has a maximum power output of 370kW and a maximum range of 125 miles.

Sales of the new truck are expected to start next year.
