"Electromobility is fully in line with Volvo Truck's long term commitment for sustainable urban development and zero emissions," said Claes Nilsson, President Volvo Trucks.

Electric trucks drastically reduce noise and exhaust emissions and open up for new ways to manage logistics. More transport assignments can be carried out at night and fewer trucks need to compete for road space during rush-hour.

"Our technology and knowhow within electromobility are based on proven commercial solutions already in use on Volvo's electric buses, and solutions that were introduced in Volvo's hybrid trucks as far back as 2010. The vehicles themselves are only one part of what is needed for large-scale electrification to succeed," added Jonas Odermalm, Head of product strategy medium duty vehicles at Volvo Trucks.

Enabling long term sustainable transport is a complex issue that requires a holistic and wide range of measures.

"We are working closely with customers, cities, suppliers of charging infrastructure and other key stakeholders to create the necessary framework for electrical trucks," said Jonas Odermalm.

"We belive in full electrification for urban distribution as a first step. However we are working with electrification for other transport applications. This is only the beginning," concluded Claes Nilsson, President Volvo Trucks.
