Volvo FE Electric refuse truck

Wednesday, 16 May, 2018 | Supplied by: Volvo Group Australia Pty Ltd

The Volvo Trucks Volvo FE Electric is designed for heavier city distribution and refuse transport operations with gross weights of up to 27 tonnes. The truck was developed together with Europe’s refuse collection bodybuilder, Faun.

The truck will be offered in several variants for different types of transport assignment. For instance with Volvo’s low-entry cab, which makes it easier to enter and exit the cab and gives the driver a commanding view of surrounding traffic.

The working environment improves too as a result of the low noise level and vibration-free operation. Battery capacity can be optimised to suit individual needs, and charging takes place either via the mains or via quick-charge stations.

Features include: two electric motors with 370 kW max power (260 kW cont. power) with a Volvo 2-speed transmission; lithium-ion batteries, 200–300 kWh and range up to 200 km; two charging systems are available and charging time varies from 1 to 10 h, depending on the system used.

Sales will commence in Europe in 2019.
