Volvo Trucks has unveiled an all-new heavy-duty truck platform for the North American market in parallel to a new heavy-duty truck range for Europe, Australia and markets in Asia and Africa. A range of new, energy efficient, models – including trucks running on electricity and renewable fuels – will help the Volvo division reduce its CO2 emissions and deliver a net-zero emission product range by 2040.

Supporting the achievement of these goals is a new energy-efficient platform designed for the North America market. Cutting fuel consumption by up to 10 percent, while also enhancing truck safety, the new platform will be used to build a variety of new models in the near future. Volvo Trucks confirmed that the platform will flexibly accommodate a range of its electric and renewable fuel technologies, as well as its efficient combustion engines. The first model to be based on this new platform is the all-new VNL model, which is equipped with a new engine that delivers improved fuel efficiency, performance, and durability, as well as a range of new ADAS.

In Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa, Volvo Trucks is launching the new Volvo FH Aero, a truck optimized for energy-efficient heavy-duty transports. While lowering energy consumption and CO2 emissions by up to five percent, the truck also comes with a choice of propulsion systems – including electric, biogas and diesel.
