Volvo Trucks Expands Electric Truck Charging Network Across Europe

2 min read

Volvo Trucks, a leading name in the automotive industry, is taking significant strides toward the electrification of heavy transport with the introduction of a nationwide network of fast chargers for electric trucks in Sweden. This network, powered entirely by renewable energy, is a crucial step towards achieving sustainable heavy transportation and reducing the carbon footprint of the trucking industry.

The ambitious plan aims to roll out approximately 130 charging stations in Sweden during 2023 and 2024, operated by multiple companies, with Volvo Trucks being a prominent partner in this endeavor.

To complement this initiative, Volvo Trucks is launching a user-friendly service designed to simplify the process of locating and accessing these charging stations. While initially introduced in Sweden, the service has plans to expand to other European markets and beyond.

Roger Alm, President of Volvo Trucks, emphasized the significance of this development, stating, “This is a real breakthrough for the electrification of heavy transport. Our customers will be able to access public fast chargers all around Sweden, making the transition to electric trucks more convenient and accessible.”

One of the key features of this service is its inclusivity. It is open to trucks of all brands, providing comprehensive information about charging stations suitable for heavy-duty vehicles, regardless of the operator. Users can conveniently make payments for charging through the platform, with future enhancements to include the ability to pre-book charging slots.
