Volvo Trucks will be launching its first commercial electric truck offering, the 16-tonne GVW Volvo FL Electric, within the near future. Production and sales are slated to begin in 2019.
That relates simply to sales in Europe, of course, where the initial run of such trucks is now being put to use by pilot program customers — including the garbage collection firm Renova and the haulage firm TGM.
The new Volvo FL Electric offering reportedly features a variable design when it comes to battery pack capacities and ranges — with capacities of 100 kilowatt-hours (kWh) and 300 kWh available. Fast charging capability of up to 150 kW is available (via CCS/Combo2) as well.
