As global interest in zero-emissions commercial vehicles like electric trucks and buses grows, Volvo Group is at the forefront of this movement. The first quarter of 2023 saw 683 electric trucks supplied by them, an increase of 254% year over year.
When it comes to fully electric heavy-duty vehicles, Volvo Group, the parent company of Renault Trucks, Mack Trucks, Nova Bus, and more, remains a pioneer.
The Volvo Group has pushed the limits of the trucking industry with innovations such as the three-point safety harness, one-of-a-kind designs to increase efficiency, and the first fully integrated sleeper compartment. They are best known as a global leader in trucking but also make marine and industrial engines. They changed the industry’s course towards a more sustainable future with the release of its first electric truck, the FL Electric, in 2019.
Volvo then released the more potent VNR Electric, which also had a more capacious battery pack for greater range. Volvo has the most comprehensive inventory of zero-emission commercial choices, thanks in large part to the addition of three gigantic 44-ton heavy-duty electric trucks this past year.
Deliveries of the company’s electric trucks increased by 254 percent in the first quarter, proving that the company’s pioneering efforts are paying off.
Sales of Volvo Group’s electric trucks are on the rise.
On Thursday, this group announced its financial results for the first three months of 2023, which included the delivery of 683 all-electric trucks.
The company’s zero-emission deliveries have been on the upswing since Q1 2022, when there were only 193. In comparison to Renault Trucks’ 331 (128 heavy and medium duty, 203 light duty) and Mack’s 2 EV trucks, Volvo delivered 350.
Meanwhile, orders for electric trucks increased by 67% during the quarter, totaling 825 vehicles.
