Californian hauliers' heavy duty trucks to be fully electric
Volvo Trucks has offered a first look at its North American Class 8 battery-electric project trucks. In Europe, Volvo Trucks has already started sales of e-trucks for urban transports. The Volvo VNR Electric project trucks will be put into real-world commercial operations with two of California’s prominent freight companies, Dependable Supply Chain Services and NFI.
In North America, the Volvo VNR Electric will become the ideal truck model for short- and regional-haul applications like heavy urban distribution, drayage and other applications.
Volvo Trucks in North America will begin the first phase of serial production and commercial offering of the Volvo VNR Electric in late 2020. (ben)
