Volvo FE FITC Exhibit

Volvo Trucks will be displaying a 6x2 hook-lift rigid from its new FE-Electric range at next week’s Freight in the City Expo in London.

The driveline consists of two electric motors with a maximum power of 400kW (330kW continuous) and a Volvo I-Shift 2-speed transmission. Maximum torque from the electric motors is 850Nm and the battery capacity can be optimised to suit individual needs and charging.

Its 26-tonne chassis cab utilises a 240Nm electric PTO with a HIAB ULT18 SL 51 hook-lift to operate its 5.5m Zetterberg Container body.

With a payload capacity of 12,400kg, full air suspension and steered tag axle, Volvo said it is ideal for city refuse collection, construction and other applications in urban conditions.

It also has zero tailpipe emissions and an almost-silent driveline meaning commercial operations can be carried out in the early mornings or late at night, helping reduce congestion at peak traffic times.

The Volvo FE Electric is part of a comprehensive range of electrically powered trucks for city operations, and another strategic step forward for the manufacturer in developing electrified transport solutions.

Also on show for the first time at Freight in the City Expo on 6 November at Alexandra Palace will be Vera - Volvo's autonomous, connected, delivery vehicle.
