Volvo Trucks India, a division of VE Commercial Vehicles Ltd. (VECV), a collaborative effort between Volvo Group and Eicher Motors, proudly unveiled its cutting-edge Volvo FM 4X2 Electric Highway Tractor Truck at the Bharat Mobility Global Expo 2024 in Delhi.

This significant step aligns with the shared commitment of Volvo Group and VECV towards carbon neutrality, show casing their dedication to providing diverse alternative fuel solutions to customers.

 “As one of the largest producers of trucks in the world, Volvo Trucks has a range of alternate fuel solutions. Last year we successfully demonstrated LNG trucks in India and are ready for commercial sales of these LNG -powered trucks. We are now in advanced trials in real-world Indian conditions for our Electric trucks in express cargo movement. Upon successful completion, we will be offering these to our customers. While our clean diesel and LNG-powered trucks will be used for longer range applications, the Volvo FM 4X2 Electric Highway Tractor will serve shorter runs and regional haul.” says Vinod Aggarwal, MD & CEO, VE Commercial Vehicles Ltd.

Globally, Volvo has achieved a milestone by delivering over 5000 medium and heavy-duty electric trucks across various applications. In India, the initial offering will be the versatile FM 4×2 electric tractor, catering to express logistics, container movement, car carriers, reefers, and mineral transport. Boasting a Gross Combination Weight (GCW) of 44 tons, the electric truck features a powerful 490 kW motor and a substantial 540 kWh battery capacity, providing a range of 250-300 km depending on the route and load.

The Volvo FM 4X2 Electric Highway Tractor also integrates cutting-edge Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) features, including Forward Collision Warning with Emergency Braking, a driver alert system, and lane-changing support.
