Volvo Trucks has unveiled an all-new heavy-duty truck platform for the North American market.
This is in parallel to a new heavy-duty truck range for Europe, Australia and markets in Asia and Africa.
This means a “significant” overhaul and expansion of Volvo Trucks heavy-duty offering globally, the firm says.
New energy efficient models, including trucks running on electricity and renewable fuels, will reduce CO2 emissions and take the company closer to the target of having a net-zero emission product range by year 2040.
Roger Alm, President Volvo Trucks said: “This is a bold move– we are launching new best-in-class trucks that will set a benchmark for energy efficiency and reduction of CO2 emissions across the entire product range.”
“They have been designed to accelerate the journey towards our ambitious 2040 net-zero emission target, but they also offer higher levels of safety, productivity and uptime for our customers.”
