Volvo delivers heavy transport electric truck in Sweden

Volvo Trucks has been testing one of the trucks in container traffic in the port area of ​​Arendal in Gothenburg.

Volvo Trucks delivered an electric truck for heavy transport to a hauler in Gothenburg, Sweden. The company said the truck can handle a total weight of 74 tonnes.

More and more hauliers are now starting to invest in electric trucks, also for heavy transport, Volvo said. Mattsson Åkeri in Gothenburg, Sweden is one of them, and the company has now bought three heavy electric Volvo FH trucks from Volvo.

For the past few weeks, testing has been ongoing on one of the trucks in container traffic in the port area of ​​Arendal in Gothenburg.

“We want to show that all-electric solutions also work in applications with high total weights and a high utilization rate. Together with Mattsson Åkeri, the Swedish Transport Administration and several other partners, we are now looking at how we can optimize the operation of the electric truck,” explained Lena Larsson, project manager of the HCT project within Volvo’s technology organization.
