The technology has been trilled as a proof of concept in a modified terminal tractor and will be available for a wider range of industrial installations.

“We take a system supplier approach which means that we can create a flexible, bespoke electric driveline solution for a specific vehicle and application,” explained Morgan Blomgren, director Strategy & Business Development. “We are very experienced in a variety of different segments, so by using that knowledge and combining it with the Volvo Group’s proven electromobility experience, we can build the best modular platform for our customer’s applications. With that as a base, we can optimise the design and adapt the complete electric driveline system for a specific vehicle, considering the exact application, usage, climate and environment it will operate in.”
