Volvo to sell elec­tric trucks in Europe

China Daily European Weekly - - BUSINESS -

Volvo Trucks will start sell­ing elec­tric medium-duty trucks in Europe in 2019, the com­pany said on Jan 23 in a state­ment. “Elec­tro mo­bil­ity is fully in line with Volvo Trucks’ long-term com­mit­ment for sus­tain­able ur­ban de­vel­op­ment and zero emis­sions,” said Claes Nils­son, pres­i­dent of Volvo Trucks. Elec­tric trucks dras­ti­cally re­duce noise and ex­haust emis­sions and open up new ways to man­age lo­gis­tics. More trans­port as­sign­ments can be car­ried out at night and fewer trucks need to com­pete for road space dur­ing rush hour, the com­pany said.
