Volvo will launch a full line of electric trucks in Europe in 2021

Volvo Trucks, Sweden's leading brand, Volvo Trucks, announced in a statement Thursday that a full range of heavy electric vehicles will be sold in Europe from 2021.

Volvo said: Heavy electric vehicles (Volvo FH), (Volvo FM), Volvo FM and (Volvo FMX) are currently being tested for regional transportation and urban business in Europe.

The company said: The total weight of the truck is 44 tons and depending on the configuration of the battery, the range can reach 300 km. Sales will start in 2021, then mass production will start in 2022.

"This means (Volvo Trucks) will sell a full range of battery-powered trucks in Europe for distribution, waste, regional transportation and urban development from 2021," she said.

In October 2019, Volvo Cars announced the launch of the XC40 Recharge: the first all-electric vehicle within its brand new focus on electric vehicles, paving the way for the company in this promising market.

"This is one of the first cars and it is the car of the future," said the chief technology officer of the Swedish company at the time. This vehicle is the company's first fully electric vehicle and the first to rely on Google. Volvo Car Entertainment System also includes a function to receive wireless updates.

The XC40 Recharge is also the first vehicle from the Volvo Recharge brand. The company announced the brand last week and it will be a name for all the company's fully electric or hybrid cars.

The new car supports rear-wheel drive, which is one of the three car-drive systems that transmit movement from the engine to the rear wheels, and there are two other systems: front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive. The battery has a capacity of 78 kWh, so the car can travel 400 km on a single charge.
