The sales have started for Volvo Trucks North America’s Class 8 zero tailpipe emission VNR Electric truck model.
In a step toward realizing the organization’s vision for more sustainable transportation industry, Volvo Trucks North America announced its VNR Electric model is now commercially available in North America.
The Volvo VNR Electric plays a pivotal role in helping Volvo Trucks’ North American fleet customers meaningfully reduce emissions and achieve their ambitious sustainability goals.
Volvo Trucks is successfully facilitating the introduction of Class 8 VNR Electric model to the North American market in part through strategic partnerships and participation in innovative demonstration projects.
With a goal to transform goods movement, the Volvo LIGHTS project united public and private stakeholders to design an end-to-end support system for the wide-scale electrification of commercial trucking. Alongside real-world fleet trials, the landmark project created a dealership service model for sales and maintenance, developed best practices to implement reliable and cost-effective heavy-duty charging infrastructure, and launched training programs for technicians and first responders. The project will continue to gather real-world operational data through 2021.
