Volvo Trucks’s second electric model will be brought to market in 2019.

The new FE Electric 27-tonne truck is designed for city centre distribution and waste management operations.

The manufacturers says the vehicle ­sees it taking “yet another strategic step forward” in the development of electrified transport.

The announcement comes after the company recently unveiled its first electric truck.

Claes Nilsson, President of Volvo Trucks, said: “This opens the door to new forms of co-operation with cities to improve air quality, reduce traffic noise and cut congestion during peak hours, since commercial operations can instead be carried out quietly and without tailpipe exhaust emissions early in the morning or late at night.”
