Norwegian Post places milestone order for Volvo electric trucks

The Norwegian postal service has ordered 29 electric trucks from Volvo, making it one of the largest orders of its kind for the electric heavy-duty truck maker in Europe.

All trucks have the same driveline but will come in different configurations of the Volvo FL and FE models, with two and three axles respectively.

Norwegian Post has previously placed an order with Volvo for 13 biogas fuelled and three electric trucks. In total during 2022 Volvo Trucks will deliver 32 electric and 13 biogas fuelled trucks to the Norwegian postal service.

Over a third (37%) of its fleet now runs on renewable energy.

“This is clearly the largest order ever for Volvo electric trucks in Norway, and it is a major contract even in an international context,” said Espen Sanne, fleet sales manager Volvo Trucks Norway.

In the level of deployment of electric trucks in Europe, Norway is currently surpassed only by Switzerland.
