Company hosts global online event on 12 October 2021 to speed up transition to electric trucks
VOLVO Trucks are addressing the urgency to fast-forward the transformation to electric transport by arranging a global online event ‘The Leap’ on 12 October.
The aim of the one-hour long event is to show how to go electric and inspire transport companies to get started. The Volvo Trucks electromobility event will not only answer common questions, but also highlight the important business aspects of electromobility.
Roger Alm, president of Volvo Trucks, said: ‘With this initiative we want to encourage transport buyers and hauliers to take their first important steps towards electromobility. Offering fossil-free transport will be a key to staying competitive.’
Volvo Trucks started production of electric trucks in 2019. Since then, the urgency to fight climate change has grown even more.
Mr Alm continued: ‘We are the forerunners in electric transportation and are working hard to initiate this very necessary technology shift. Now many pieces in the puzzle are coming together, making it possible for more hauliers to dramatically lower their CO2 emissions. This event will explain how it can be done.’
