Volvo Trucks begins vendor shipping program for EV chargers

Volvo Trucks North America has begun a new program to provide access to EV charging for dealers and fleet customers. The company says the new Vendor Direct Shipping program allows customers to procure mobile and fixed charging hardware solutions directly from Volvo Trucks dealers when they purchase Volvo VNR Electric trucks.

“The Volvo Trucks dealer will be able to log in to the parts portal and order chargers just as they would to order any truck part,” said Peter Voorhoeve, president of Volvo Trucks North America.

Volvo says customers can purchase charging hardware when they buy a Volvo VNR Electric truck. Customers will initially choose from two chargers from Heliox: a 50kW Mobile DC Fast Charger (Single Port CCS1) or a 180kW Flex DC Fast Charger (up to three CCS-1 dispensers).

Customers participating in the program can work with participating vendors to develop tailored and scalable infrastructure, Volvo Trucks says. Heliox is the first provider to participate.
