Volvo FH Electric. City-to-city.

When your transport routes expand a little further, maybe from city-to-city, this is the right choice. The Volvo FH Electric comes with excellent comfort and a convenient overview of the traffic ahead. It’s that same iconic and capable truck loved by drivers worldwide, with a carbon footprint to meet your ambitious targets. To simplify the transition to electric transports, the truck is offered together with service and support packages for charging, route and range planning, battery monitoring and more.

Up to 44 tonnes GCW

Up to 490 kw continuous power

Up to 300 km range

Stay productive and in control

Adding a Volvo electric truck to your operation is easy. The Volvo Gold Contract includes predictive service planning and battery monitoring to secure uptime. To optimise truck usage, route and range planning, positioning with energy status and follow-up reports have now been added. All this can be conveniently accessed in the Volvo Connect portal, along with other support functions. Routes can be shared between the office and the truck and the driver can easily view the battery state of charge, control the parking heater and more via the MyTruck app.

Smooth and powerful driveline

Three electrical motors combined with an I-Shift gearbox adapted for electromobility provide a smooth and powerful driving experience. The massive power of up to 490 kW/650 hp and 2400 Nm torque is handled by a unique traction control system also developed to master slippery surfaces. Different drive modes are available to set the desired performance, comfort and energy usage levels. The six battery packs produce up to 540 kWh, ensuring sufficient range for many regional haul assignments.
