E-trucks for the building sector to be tested
Volvo Trucks will shortly start live tests of a fully electric transport solution for the construction industry. Two heavy duty trucks will be delivered to Sweden-based customer Swerock in order to meet the growing demands for less noise and emissions – especially in sensitive urban areas.
The project will evaluate how electric trucks can be used to increase efficiency and reduce climate impact. The live test collaboration between the two companies will feature two fully electric construction trucks: a Volvo FM and a Volvo FMX.
Volvo already has successfully introduced serially produced electric trucks for urban transport and refuse collection. (ben)
