Largest e-trucks order comes from Switzerland
Volvo Trucks has signed a letter of intent to sell 1,000 electric trucks between now and 2030 to Holcim. The deal is the largest commercial order to date for these Volvo vehicles, and the first 130 heavy electric Volvo FH and Volvo FM trucks will be delivered during Q4/2023 and throughout 2024, the manufacturer said. These vehicles will be deployed primarily in France, Germany, Switzerland, and UK.
Holcim is a global provider of building solutions, with headquarters in Switzerland. By replacing 1,000 existing Volvo FH diesel trucks with Volvo FH electric trucks using green electricity on a typical route, up to 50,000 t of CO2 could be saved every year. (ben)
