The company's goal is to have a zero-emission fleet by 2025 at the latest. At a ceremony outside Oslo on 29 October, one of the first trucks was christened by Erna Solberg, the Prime Minister of Norway. The absence of exhaust fumes and engine noise contributes to a better working environment and the drivers, who have already driven electric trucks for a while, are very satisfied.

In close collaboration with companies in the construction industry, Volvo Trucks has developed electrified transport solutions that meet the industry's requirements in terms of performance, distance covered, freight handling and efficient vehicle use. Because of the absence of exhaust gases and engine noise, electric vehicles help to create a better working environment and quieter, cleaner cities.

The model is designed to meet demanding urban transport requirements, including light construction operations, waste management and goods deliveries. It has three axles and a gross vehicle weight of up to 27 tonnes.
