Volvo Unveils Updated Electric Trucks Designed for Zero-emission City Transports

With an electric range up to 450 km, Volvo´s updated medium-duty electric trucks are designed for the urban environment

With cities introducing clean city zones and companies stepping up their sustainability ambitions, zero emission trucks that can meet all needs for city transports and logistics are more relevant than ever before.

To meet these demands, Volvo Trucks has presented its updated electric medium duty trucks – the Volvo FL and FE.

The Volvo FL and FE are ideal for most applications in the busy city, such as distribution, refuse handling and urban construction. The electric versions have been on the market since 2019 and are sold in multiple markets across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australia.

The AC charging capacity of the battery-electric medium duty trucks has been almost doubled to 43 kW, cutting the time needed to charge the battery by approximately 50 percent. They also offer recently updated battery packs, delivering up to 450 km in total range from one charge.

“Volvo Trucks has a market leading offer of electric trucks – and we are constantly improving them to enable more businesses to take the step to zero emission vehicles for their daily operations”, says Jessica Sandström, Head of Product Management at Volvo Trucks.

“The upgraded Volvo FL- and FE-models are ideal work tools for businesses with sustainability high up on their agendas, offering a wide range of applications for their customers.”

Safety is key in the Volvo FL- and FE trucks which typically shares limited space with cars, cyclists, kick-bikers and pedestrians in the busy city.

A range of new features will increase safety both for the driver and for other road users and these safety upgrades means that the Volvo FL and FE models exceed the General Safety Regulations coming into effect in 2024.

The new FL- and FE models also come with a new appealing design with a revamped front end, distinct LED headlights and a boosted iron mark as well as the Volvo wordmark in the front.

Further, all powertrain variants on the Volvo FL and FE, including electric, gas and diesel, have been fitted with a number of new features, making them even better equipped for modern businesses in the city.
