Volvo Trucks North America announced that production of the enhanced Volvo VNR Electric model will begin in the second quarter.

Trucks have up to 85% range extension, faster charging, and more configurations for large transport.

“In an ever-evolving industry, bringing an expanded version of VNR Electric to market a year after it first went on sale is a testament to Volvo Trucks’ leadership,” said Peter Voorhoeve, president of VTNA. It is stated in.

VTNA began customer orders for the first Volvo VNR Electric model in December 2020 and began commercial production in the second quarter of 2021 at its New River Valley manufacturing plant in Dublin, Virginia.

The true power of the enhanced Volvo VNR Electric is in improving the battery: providing technology, design, management and packaging, according to a company based in Greensboro, NC, a division of the Volvo Group.

Improved battery design has increased the storage capacity of each battery by up to 40%. A dedicated battery heat management system has been added to control and maintain the ideal ambient temperature. VTNA also mentioned the introduction of a new 6-battery package option.

The enhanced Volvo VNR Electric has a 250kW charging function that allows it to charge 80% in 90 minutes for the 6-battery package and 60 minutes for the 4-battery version, reducing the charging time required. — Transport topic
