Volvo Trucks to produce trucks with new rear e-axle

Volvo Trucks has introduced a new e-axle designed for the rear axle of its trucks. The company says the e-axle “allows even more batteries on the truck by integrating the electric motors and the transmission into the rear axle. More batteries mean longer range, which creates opportunities for long-distance transports to also be electrified.”

“We will continue with our versatile battery-electric trucks that are already in production,” says SVP of Global Product Management Jessica Sandström. “They can currently cover a wide range of transport assignments. In a few years, we will add this new rear e-axle for customers covering longer routes than today.”
