Orders for around 6,000 e-trucks so far
Volvo trucks are now built in four factories – three in Europe and one in the USA. The manufacturer recently kicked off the serial production of heavy battery electric trucks in its factory in Ghent (Belgium).
Three different electric models will be built here – the Volvo FH, the Volvo FM and the Volvo FMX Electric. These trucks can operate at a total weight of 44 t and can be adapted for a wide range of transport needs.
The Ghent factory is the largest Volvo Trucks production site with a yearly capacity of around 45,000 trucks. To date, Volvo Trucks has taken orders, including letters of intent to buy, for around 6,000 electric trucks in 42 countries on six continents. (ben)
