STOCKHOLM (Reuters) – Volvo Trucks, Sweden’s AB Volvo’s most important truck brand, will market a complete selection of electric powered, major-obligation vans in Europe starting in 2021, the enterprise said in a statement on Thursday.
Volvo explained it was at this time operating assessments of the electric major-obligation Volvo FH, Volvo FM and Volvo FMX vehicles, to be applied for regional transport and urban design operations in Europe.
The vans will have a gross blend weight of up to 44 tonnes, and, dependent on the battery configuration, the range could be up to 300 kilometers, Volvo explained.
Revenue will begin in 2021 and volume creation will commence in 2022.
“This usually means that from 2021 onwards Volvo Vehicles will provide a full selection of battery-electric trucks in Europe for distribution, refuse, regional transportation and urban construction operations,” it said.
