How can we meet the climate challenge while the need for transport
continues to increase? Volvo Trucks is taking another step, exploring the future of heavy-duty
electric vehicles in two new segments: regional distribution
and urban construction transports. Growing urbanisation drives demand for cleaner and even more silent
transport in the delivery of goods and construction of houses, roads and
other infrastructure in populated areas. In Europe, Volvo Trucks
has already started sales of the Volvo FL Electric
and Volvo FE Electric for city distribution, waste transport
and similar local assignments. In the longer term,
there is potential for electric power in even more demanding applications, such as regional distribution
and urban construction transports. Low noise level and reduced emissions
during operation of the electric trucks contribute to a better
working environment and reduced community disturbance. The number of trucks used for transportation of regional goods
in Europe is vast. Around 80% of all goods in Europe
is transported on trucks. More electric vehicles in this area would greatly reduce the overall climate
impact of the transportation sector. With these electric concept vehicles, Volvo Trucks will explore, demonstrate
and evaluate different solutions and measure the level of interest
in society and the market. It is the speed of this transition
that will depend on a number of factors. Large investments
in charging infrastructure and electricity supply systems
will be necessary. Initially, financial
and operational incentives will speed up the adoption
of electric commercial vehicles. Electric vehicles
charged by renewable energy sources can mean a powerful step
towards more sustainable transportation. But efficient
internal combustion engines will continue to play an important role
for years to come. Today’s combustion engines
are efficient energy convertors that can run on both diesel
and a variety of renewable fuels, such as liquid biogas or HVO. Simultaneously, the next
five to ten years will see an increase in the share of zero exhaust emission
electric trucks in operation, and through this transition Volvo
Trucks aim to be a trusted partner, delivering the best transport solutions
for a growing world.

    I'm curious to learn how electric works in sleepers when the driver NEEDS to keep foods cold/ frozen, cook, heat the cab in cold weather and keep the cab chilled in hot weather. A separate diesel powered APU which also doubles as a quick charge for low volt battery starts? Some of us HAVE to live in these boxes on wheels.
