Volvo has launched its first all-electric truck for commercial use.

The Volvo FL Electric is designed for urban distribution and refuse operations, among other applications.

Sales and serious production are set to begin in Europe next year.

“We’re immensely proud to present the first in a range of fully electrically-powered Volvo trucks ready for regular traffic. With this model we are making it possible for cities that aim for sustainable urban development to benefit from the advantages of electrified truck transports,” said Claes Nilsson, president Volvo Trucks.
