The Volvo FL always gives you access to the right power for the job. Looking to reduce your CO₂ footprint? Go electric with zero tailpipe emissions and an easy quiet drive. And if you want to rely on state-of-the-art diesel power –there’s a range for your needs.

Electric power

The Volvo FL Electric offers operation with zero exhaust gas emissions. Perfect for inner city use when you want to meet the most stringent environmental standards. An electric motor with 175 hp of continuous power and instant full torque means it’s very easy to drive. The 2-speed gearbox makes it all smooth and efficient.

Low emissions and low noise

The electric powertrain offers an excellent working environment. Quiet operation inside the cab and when working around the truck. Zero exhaust means an improvement in air quality when working around the truck in operations lite waste collection.

Range and charging

We tailor your Volvo FL Electric for your routes and assignments. With fully charged batteries, the Volvo FL Electric will get you up to 420 km*, but we can build your truck for an even longer range if needed.

Diesel power

There are two 5-litre engines and two 8-litre diesel engines available. They all offer fast response and high torque at low revs. They’re available in output levels from 210 to 280 hp and up to 1050 Nm of torque. The engines are energy efficient and can operate on renewable fuels – certified for synthetic diesel (HVO) and biodiesel (RME).

Exhaust aftertreatment

The diesel engines use Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) technology to comply with Euro 6 regulations. We added a water-cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system to the engine and a diesel particulate filter (DPF) which regenerates automatically.

Automatic or manual

For the diesel-powered Volvo FL, you have the choice of either the smooth and efficient 8-speed automatic, the 6-speed automatic that offers power delivery without interruption or the manual gearbox with 6 or 9 speeds. You can really tailor the powertrain to your needs.

An automatic 8-speed gearbox, designed for the Volvo FL makes sure you’re always in the right gear. It offers smooth gear changes and excellent fuel efficiency. The gearbox comes with three driving modes and is available in combination with both 4×2 and 4×4 drive.
