Volvo Trucks is expecting sales of its heavy-duty electric truck range to increase now it has officially opened its order system.

Volvo Trucks has officially released the order system for its heavy-duty electric truck range, which includes the Volvo FH, the Volvo FM and the Volvo FMX.

Serial production of these electric vehicles will begin during 2022 and will gradually ramp up, according to Volvo Trucks, and will be produced in the CO2 neutral Tuve plant in Gothernburg.

"This is a milestone for Volvo Trucks," Volvo Trucks president Roger Alm says.

"There is a lot of interest from customers to place orders for these fantastic trucks.

"Until now we have mainly offered customers and partners to sign letters of intent to buy, but now we have mainly offered customers and partners to sign letters of intent to buy and firm orders, which is a major step forward for electrification."

In 2021 Volvo Trucks took orders for more than 1,100 electric trucks in over 20 countries, including the electric versions of medium-duty trucks Volvo FE, FL and VNR, which are already in serial production.

"It’s clearly becoming a competitive advantage to be able to offer silent, zero exhaust emission transport solutions," Alm says.

With six electric truck models in production this year, Volvo Trucks says it has the most complete electric line up in the global truck industry that covers everything from city distribution to regional haulage.

It says the company’s target is to have half of its total truck sales be electric by 2030.
