Volvo FL and FE electric truck sales start in Europe07 November 2019

Volvo Trucks has announced that its Volvo FL and FE electric vehicles are now available to buy in six European countries, with serial production due to start in March 2020.

The company says sales are initially starting in Sweden, Norway, Germany, Switzerland, France and the Netherlands.

The FL and FE electric trucks have been developed for distribution, refuse handling and other urban transport applications, according to the truck maker. The FL has a gvw of 16 tonnes, while the gvw of the FE is 27 tonnes.

“Global urbanisation requires urban logistics and truck transport with zero emissions and less noise with increasing urgency. With the Volvo FL Electric and Volvo FE Electric, we are able to meet both the strong environmental demands as well as the high commercial requirements of our customers,” says Jonas Odermalm, Volvo’s VP for the electromobility product line.

In July, Volvo announced that it was forming a strategic alliance with Samsung for the development of battery packs for Volvo electric trucks.
