A quarter of a century later it remains an innovative leader, not the least within areas that directly benefits drivers, such as safety and driver care.

  • In 2019 Volvo Trucks will start selling electric trucks in Europe, and the first units will be put into operation together with selected reference customers already this year. 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. “Electromobility is fully in line with Volvo Trucks long term commitment for sustainable urban development and zero emissions”, says Claes Nilsson, President Volvo Trucks.

The new Volvo FH LNG and Volvo FM LNG are available with 420 or 460 hp for heavy regional and long-haul operations.
