Volvo receives its largest electric truck order to date in Australia.

Australian express freight company, Team Global Express, has placed an order for 36 Volvo electric trucks. This is Volvo’s largest electric truck order to date in Australia.

Australian express freight company Team Global Express has placed an order for 36 battery electric Volvo trucks. This is Volvo’s largest electric truck order to date in Australia. The trucks will hit the streets of Sydney during the first quarter of 2023.

Team Global Express has ordered 36 units of the model Volvo FL. These trucks are designed for urban distribution and have a load capacity of 5,5 tonnes in this application. They will become a part of Team Global Express Sydney’s metropolitan pick-up and delivery fleet.

The electric trucks have zero tailpipe emissions and produce less noise than conventional trucks, which benefits both drivers and city residents. The truck will be equipped with four 66 kWh battery packs for increased range and improved charging performance. It has a 600-volt single-motor electric drive system and a 2-speed automated transmission. The truck can operate at a total weight of 16 tonnes.

Martin Merrick, President, Volvo Group Australia, said: It’s clear that more and more transport companies around the world now want to start the journey towards electric, zero-emission transports. Volvo is first out with heavy electric trucks in Australia, and we are excited to work together with Team Global Express and other customers. We have the broadest electric truck lineup in the industry, which makes it possible to electrify city and regional transport already today.
