Built to last in your operations

The powertrain consists of an electric motor and a 2-speed gearbox

Electric powertrains
The Volvo FL Electric powertrain consists of an electric motor and a 2-speed gearbox.

The electric motor 
The power to drive the truck is generated by an electric motor with a power output of 200 kW and a 425 Nm of torque.

Transmission
Both powertrains utilise a 2-speed gearbox to make use of the motor’s range in the most efficient way. Designed and built by Volvo, the gearbox has independent power flows that enables gear shifting without interruption in power. It offers an experience of fully controlled and seamless power in all driving situations.

Volvo FL Electric specifications

The battery capacity is tailored for each truck's use and has an estimated lifetime of 8-10 years

Battery packs
The battery capacity and number of battery packs is tailored to your needs. The Volvo FL Electric can be fitted with up to six battery packs. Each pack has an energy capacity of 50 kWh and an estimated lifetime of 8–10 years depending on your operations.

Charging
The charging connection meets the current automotive standard and different charging methods are possible. Either you can use the onboard AC charger, which enables you to charge at industrial sites, or use the charging cable included with the vehicle. Finally, you can also charge at external DC stations for faster charging.

Powering the superstructure
All functions on the bodywork are powered by a separate electric motor that drives a hydraulic pump. There are two motor options – one with a peak output of 240 Nm and 70 kW, and a more powerful with 530 Nm and 100-kW output.

Tested and reliable
The electric powertrain and the battery pack are based on the solution used by Volvo Buses. So far 4 000 buses with either hybrid or all-electric drive are in use. Volvo Trucks also has a track record with hybrid drive trucks.

The Volvo FL Electric is equipped  with components and systems that are unique to electric trucks
