Volvo Trucks gets largest order for 110 VNR Electric Trucks

Volvo Trucks North America says it has received its largest global order of Class 8 electric trucks to date with Performance Team – A Maersk Company making a total commitment to purchase 126 Volvo VNR Electric trucks. The logistics company placed its first order of 16 Volvo VNR Electrics in Q3 2021 which Performance Team will begin operating in Q2 2022 in its Southern California fleet operations serving port drayage and warehouse distribution routes. Performance Team has ordered an additional 110 Volvo VNR Electric trucks to scale its zero-tailpipe emission freight logistics fleet in 2022. All 126 trucks are scheduled for deployment by Q1 2023.

The order was facilitated in collaboration with TEC Equipment, Volvo Trucks’ largest West Coast dealership and the first to achieve the Volvo Trucks Certified Electric Vehicle (EV) Dealer designation in North America in 2021. TEC Equipment’s Fontana and La Mirada locations in Southern California will support Performance Team in maximizing the uptime of their Volvo VNR Electric fleets. As Volvo Trucks Certified EV Dealers, the two TEC Equipment locations have trained and equipped their service teams to safely perform battery-electric truck maintenance and repairs for customers.

In January 2022, Volvo Trucks announced production plans for its next generation VNR Electric model with an operational range of up to 275 miles. The enhanced Volvo VNR Electric comes with state-of-the-art 250kW charging capability, enabling an 80% charge in 90 minutes for the six-battery package and 60 minutes for the four-battery version.
