Volvo’s first electric-only truck for city work

Feb 08 | 2024

Volvo Trucks’ latest addition to its electric truck programme - Volvo FM Low Entry - is a heavy-duty truck specifically developed to handle a wide variety of transport assignments in city areas.

Volvo ElectricAs more and more cities aim to improve their city environments by lowering emission levels, demand is rapidly rising for zero-exhaust emission trucks that can meet these new customer requirements.

“This zero-emission truck is a great addition to our electric range, perfectly suited for city transports and designed with the driver in mind,” said Roger Alm, President Volvo Trucks. “It’s powerful, yet smooth to drive and easy to manoeuvre. The new Volvo FM Low Entry is perfectly in line with our ambitions to expand our electric offer, enabling even more customers to reduce their carbon emissions.”

Five-star Direct Vision rating

The low driving position offers the driver excellent visibility and control of the surroundings. The good visibility of the FM Low Entry has earned it a five-star rating in the Direct Vision Standard.

The truck is based on Volvo’s well-known FM model. The spacious cab has been lowered and moved forward, and the low instep and flat floor makes it easy to enter and exit the truck. These design features create an ergonomic, comfortable and efficient working environment for drivers in busy city locations.

The new FM Low Entry will initially be sold in Europe, including Turkey and South Korea. Sales start in the first quarter of 2024, and production starts in the second quarter of 2024.

Volvo now has a total of eight electric truck models in its range.
