Volvo’s Electric FH Wins IToY

VOLVO TRUCKS has scooped a major industry award for its FH Electric, becoming the first-ever electric truck to be named International Truck of the Year.
The jury praised the electric truck’s performance, seamless acceleration, quietness, and vibration-free behaviour. “Volvo Trucks has delivered a state-of-the-art battery electric vehicle range, suitable for a wide array of transport operations. It’s proof that the energy transition is gaining strength even in today’s challenging business environment,” stated Gianenrico Griffini, chairman of the IToY jury.
Roger Alm, president of Volvo Trucks, accepted the prestigious award during the prize ceremony at the Solutrans Transport Exhibition in Lyon, France. “I sincerely want to thank everyone who has contributed to this success. It’s based on great teamwork within the Volvo Group, and close cooperation with our valued customers, partners and suppliers,” he said.
This is the fourth time that Volvo’s iconic FH model has been named International Truck of the Year, one of the industry’s most successful models of all time with nearly 1.4 million trucks sold throughout the world.
The Volvo FH Electric can operate up to 44 tonnes. Production started in 2022 in Volvo’s factory in Gothenburg, Sweden, expanding to its factory in Ghent, Belgium in 2023.
