Volvo Trucks to Showcase Two Electric Models at American Trucking TMC

Volvo Trucks North America will showcase the Volvo VNR Electric 4×2 tractor and Volvo VNL 760 model in its booth #1005 at the American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) 2022 Spring Meeting March 7-10 in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. A cutaway of the latest-generation D13 Turbo Compound (D13TC) engine and the new Volvo VNR Electric motor will also be on display.

The VNL 760 with Xceed fuel efficiency package and FlowBelow AeroKit will be showcased in the Volvo Trucks North America booth #1005 at TMC in Orlando March 7-10, 2022.

“Volvo Trucks’ booth showcasing our sustainable transport solutions at the TMC event this year will allow attendees to catch a glimpse of the latest advancements firsthand. These best-in-class innovations demonstrate Volvo Trucks’ commitment to providing intelligent, energy-efficient solutions to our customers – without compromising on safety, high performance and drivability.”

said Andy Brown, product marketing manager at Volvo Trucks North America.

On display in the Volvo Trucks booth will be the first-generation Volvo VNR Electric model. Produced at the state-of-the-art Volvo Trucks’ New River Valley manufacturing facility in Dublin, Virginia, the first-generation Volvo VNR Electric provides decarbonized transport solutions for customer applications and driving cycles with local and regional distribution ranges.

Volvo Trucks continues to lead in the deployment of sustainable Class 8 zero-tailpipe emission vehicles for the North American trucking industry as the company announced earlier this year that production of the next-generation Volvo VNR Electric model will begin in Q2 2022. This next-generation VNR Electric model features an improved battery design resulting in a 40% battery capacity increase, a six-battery pack option capable of up to an 85% increased range of up to 275 miles, faster charging resulting in a 15% reduction in charging time, and more configurations for heavy-duty transport. A VNR Electric motor will also be on display in the Volvo Trucks booth for attendees to inspect.

The Volvo VNR Electric will be showcased in the Volvo Trucks North America booth #1005 at TMC in Orlando March 7-10, 2022.

Another key highlight in the Volvo Trucks booth at the TMC event will be the company’s flagship VNL 760 model featuring the Xceed fuel efficiency package and the FlowBelow AeroKit. The next-generation D13TC engine, now standard in all Volvo VNL models, will also be showcased as a cutaway. The Volvo D13TC provides optimized performance, efficiency and cost savings, delivering up to 6% fuel economy improvements over the Volvo D13 VGT engine, in addition to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
