Volvo Hitting Sweden's Streets With New EV Truck

Volvo показали электрический грузовик будущего

Volvo has announced its first all-electric commercial truck, called the FL Electric, as reported by Autoblog.

Volvo is looking to take "a holistic view of electrification" when it comes to the vehicles, taking into consideration, for example, how the raw materials for the batteries are extracted. The new Volvo FL Electric is designed for urban distribution and refuse operations, among other applications.

Continuous output is rated at 130 kilowatts (174 horsepower) and 425 newton-meters (313 pound-feet) of torque, though the engine is capable of 185 kilowatts' output (248 horsepower).

The first trucks in the Volvo FL Electric range are now entering regular operation with customers in Gothenburg, Sweden, home of Volvo Trucks. The 16-ton delivery vehicle can be configured with different battery packs ranging from 100 to 300 kWh, enabling a driving range of up to 300 km (186 miles).

Sale of the FL Electric is planned to start next year in European markets, and the first customers have reportedly lined up already. Volvo said that the technology used for propulsion and energy storage in the Volvo FL Electric has been thoroughly tried and tested from the outset and is supported by Volvo Trucks' network for sales, service and parts supply. Volvo Buses has been operating since 2010 and has sold over 4,000 electric buses. "With this model we are making it possible for cities that aim for sustainable urban development to benefit from the advantages of electrified truck transports", says Claes Nilsson, President Volvo Trucks. Their low noise level creates opportunities for doing more work at night, thus reducing the burden on roads during the day.

Volvo Trucks works closely with several suppliers of EV charging equipment, so customer can easily charge the electric semis.
