Volvo launches rigid versions of FH, FM, and FMX electric trucks.

The Volvo rigid electric trucks will come with multiple batteries, cab, and chassis options and can be designed to carry electric superstructures such as cranes, refuse compactors, and cement mixers.

Volvo has launched the rigid versions of its heavy electric trucks: the FH, FM, and FMX. These rigid trucks are built with a single rigid chassis and will have built-on applications such as cranes, refuse compactors, and cement mixers. The rigid trucks make it even easier for transport companies to adopt electric vehicles in urban and regional areas.

These electric trucks will come with multiple batteries, cab, and chassis options and can be designed to carry electric superstructures for a wide range of specialized transport assignments, including goods distribution, refuse collection, and construction work. Production of the new variants will begin in the first quarter of 2023.

The new rigid trucks have a battery capacity between 180-540 kWh. This, together with the number of batteries applied to a truck, provides for great flexibility and a wide range of potential operations.

The production of rigid trucks with 450-540 kWh battery capacity will start in March 2023. It will come with three electric motors, with a total output of 490 kW. The second batch of production will start in May 2023. These trucks will have a battery capacity of 360 kWh and will be equipped with two motors, with a total output of 330 kW. The production of trucks with 180-270 kWh batteries will start in September 2023.

Roger Alm, President of Volvo Trucks, said: “With these new, electric trucks we are making it easier than ever for even more customers to go electric, and for cities to shift to zero-emission vehicles for virtually all transport flows. Our customers can have these trucks custom-built for their specific operation, to cut emissions while getting the same functionality as the diesel truck they are using today. These trucks can handle all kinds of transport, from lighter to heavy loads. Customers can choose the exact battery capacity they need for their assignments, and by not carrying more batteries onboard than needed, the payload can increase. In short, we have the optimal and most cost-efficient electric transport solution, no matter what the task is.”
