It offers an experience of fully controlled and seamless power in all driving situations.

Volvo FL Electric specifications

Battery packs

The battery capacity and number of battery packs is tailored to your needs. The Volvo FL Electric can be fitted with up to six battery packs. Each pack has an energy capacity of 66 kWh and an estimated lifetime of 8–10 years depending on your operations.



The charging connection meets the current automotive standard and different charging methods are possible. Either you can use the onboard AC charger, which enables you to charge at industrial sites, or use the charging cable included with the vehicle. Finally, you can also charge at external DC stations for faster charging, assuming that they can deliver an outputvoltage of up to 750 V.

Powering the superstructure

All functions on the bodywork are powered by a separate electric motor that drives a peak output of 530 Nm and 100-kW. 

Tested and reliable

The electric powertrain and the battery pack are based on the solution used by Volvo Buses. So far 4 000 buses with either hybrid or all-electric drive are in use. Volvo Trucks also has a track record with hybrid drive trucks.
