Volvo FM Electric. Flexible regional assignments

With its low noise level and zero exhaust gases, the flexible and agile FM Electric is perfect for high-capacity grocery deliveries, container transportation, crane services and more in metropolitan areas, all with a reduced environmental impact. It can potentially also operate in zero-emission zones or at hours of the day not accessible for diesel trucks. To simplify the transition to electric transportation, the truck is offered alongside service and support packages for charging, route and range planning, battery monitoring and more.

Up to 44 tonnes GCW

Up to 490 kw power

Up to 380 km range

Stay productive and in control

Adding a Volvo electric truck to your operation is easy. The Volvo Gold Service Contract will include battery monitoring and secure uptime and deliveries with the predictive service planning. We have also added services to optimize truck usage, for instance with route and range planning, positioning with energy status and follow-up reports. All this can be conveniently accessed in the Volvo Connect portal, right next to the other truck and support functions. Routes can be shared between the office and the cab, and the driver can easily view the state of charge, control the parking heater and more via the MyTruck app.

Smooth and powerful driveline

Two or three electric 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/666 hp 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.
