With you every step

We’ve spent years developing complete solutions for electromobility.
No OEM is more qualified to help you walk through each decision as you develop your electric fleet.

Charging Infrastructure

Volvo Trucks will advise you as you select your third-party charging stations. We’ll also help as you define your requirements with local utilities.

Volvo Gold Contract

Our new Volvo Gold Contract comes standard on each electric truck and provides peace of mind covering maintenance, towing, uptime services, and full coverage of major components.


Volvo Trucks and Volvo Financial Services can assist you in securing financing for both vehicles and infrastructure, so your transition to electric is easier.



Enhanced Configurations

An expanded six-battery system now provides greater flexibility in hauling. Our 6x2 and 6x4 offerings can cover up to 275 miles on a single charge. This six-battery configuration makes electrification viable for a wide range of local and regional fleet operations.

In addition, our improved four-battery system is available in five configurations. Order it as a tractor with 4x2, 6x2, or 6x4 setup. Or choose a straight truck with 4x2 or 6x2 axle option. Whatever your need, here’s a VNR Electric that fits your local delivery application.

Proven Drivetrain

The VNR’s drivetrain is rated at 455 hp with up to 4,051 lb/ft torque. This allows for quick starts and excellent responsiveness in the close quarters of urban delivery. The fully-integrated driveline features Volvo’s two-speed I-Shift automated transmission for smooth acceleration. Our VNR Electric is capable of highway speeds.

Charged Up

When you finally need a charge, the energy storage system can be charged to 80% in 60 minutes in a 4 a battery configuration, and 90 minutes in a 6 battery configuration – with a 250kW charger. Both CCS1 & CCS2 connectors are available.

It’s still a VNR

While the VNR Electric is revolutionary, the truck itself is immediately familiar, based on the highly popular Volvo VNR. Drivers will instantly recognize the maneuverability, visibility, and safety that are part of every VNR.

A great workplace just got even better

With electromobility comes several benefits like quieter cities, cleaner air, better traffic flow and a better working environment for all. Less noise also means less stress and reduced fatigue for the driver, improving their work environment.

Stand for sustainability

As the global leader in zero-emission electric trucks, Volvo is committed to reducing pollution, noise, and traffic on crowded urban streets. When charged with renewable energy, the VNR Electric is highly energy efficient with no climate impact.

We can't compromise

The VNR Electric incorporates our highest safety standards in cab and chassis construction, with additional protection built into the battery cage. And includes the latest active safety features such as Volvo Active Driver Assist and lane departure warning.

Safety is standard

Included with the VNR Electric is Volvo Active Driver Assist, which is forward collision avoidance technology that helps drivers adapt and respond to changing traffic situations to help reduce the risk of collision. We take camera and radar technology and combine them together, working in unison to give the driver the best information available.

Batteries too

Collision tests. Barrier tests. Head impact tests. The VNR Electric cab has passed them all and they’re the toughest cabs around. You’re always well protected. Now, a side impact protection barrier integrated into the mounting system of the battery box.
