Volvo Trucks has premiered its first all-electric truck for commercial use – the Volvo FL Electric. The electric truck will be used for urban distribution and refuse operations, among other applications. The first electric trucks will initially hit the streets of Gothenburg, with full production starting in 2019.

Sales and series production of the new model will start in Europe next year and Volvo says that with this introduction the Swedish manufacturer takes the lead in solutions for electrified goods transport in cities.

“We’re immensely proud to present the first in a range of fully electrically-powered Volvo trucks ready for regular traffic,” said Claes Nilsson, President Volvo Trucks.
