World’s first fully electric heavy concrete mixer truck

Volvo Trucks has supplied a building material company with the world’s first fully electric and zero-emission heavy concrete mixer truck.

Cemex’s new Volvo FMX electric truck can be used for a full day’s work with a single top-up charge. It will be operating at the Berlin Spandau ready-mix plant in Berlin, starting this month.

As fully electric heavy-duty transport is gradually increasing, Volvo and Cemex are working to pilot and scale the technologies needed to make emissions-free transport also a reality in the construction industry.

Volvo Trucks claims to have the most complete electric lineup in the global truck industry, from 16 tons to 44 tons, and covering everything from city distribution and refuse handling, to urban construction transports and regional haulage.
