In a sign of the continued expansion of electric vehicles in the trucking industry, Volvo has agreed to supply 20 heavy-duty electric trucks to Amazon. The trucks, which are set to be delivered later this year, will be used by Amazon for its last-mile delivery operations.

This move by Volvo is just the latest in a string of investments the company has made in electric trucks. Last year, Volvo unveiled its first electric truck, the Volvo FL, and has since been testing a fleet of prototypes in Europe and North America. With the announcement of this new deal with Amazon, it’s clear that Volvo is committed to electrifying its truck offerings in the years to come.

The Need for Electric Trucks

As e-commerce continues to grow at an unprecedented rate, so too does the demand for last-mile delivery services. This has put a strain on traditional diesel-powered trucks, which are not well suited for stop-and-start city driving. Electric trucks, on the other hand, are much more efficient in this type of setting. They also emit far fewer emissions than their diesel counterparts, making them a much more sustainable option for delivery operations.

Volvo isn’t the only company betting big on electric trucks. Several other major truck manufacturers, including Daimler and Nikola, have also unveiled electric trucks in recent years. With orders for these trucks starting to come in from major companies like Amazon, it’s clear that the electric truck revolution is well underway.

The future of trucking is electric, and Volvo is leading the charge. With its new deal to supply 20 heavy-duty electric trucks to Amazon, Volvo is positioning itself at the forefront of the burgeoning e-truck market. This is just the latest in a string of investments the company has made in electric trucks, and it’s clear that Volvo is committed to electrifying its truck offerings in the years to come.
