"Funding and incentives are an important part of the total cost of ownership calculation for fleets deploying battery-electric trucks,” said Peter Voorhoeve, president of Volvo Trucks North America. “With so many local and state-level funding opportunities available from coast to coast, combined with a robust sales and service support network from Volvo Trucks, there are more resources available than ever to guide and help make electrification seamless for customers.”

Volvo Trucks North America began taking customer orders for its VNR Electric model on Dec. 3, 2020. Production of the Volvo VNR Electric began in early 2021 at the company’s New River Valley manufacturing plant in Dublin, Virginia.

The Volvo VNR Electric is eligible for funding programs throughout the United States and Canada including:

In addition to the funding and incentives available in the U.S. and Canada, Volvo Trucks is committed to making electric truck ownership viable, streamlined, and cost effective by offering special financing and insurance solutions for the Volvo VNR Electric and charging infrastructure investment through Volvo Financial Services (VFS), as well as comprehensive service and support bundles. In conjunction with the launch of the VNR Electric, Volvo Trucks introduced the Volvo Gold Contract, their most advanced service contract available, specifically designed to provide peace of mind to new electric truck owners. Incorporating maintenance, towing, uptime services, and full coverage of major components, the Volvo Gold Contract comes standard with the Volvo VNR Electric and is the first service contract of its kind from Volvo Trucks North America.

The Volvo VNR Electric produces zero tailpipe emissions and significantly reduces heat, noise and vibrations, creating the cleanest and most comfortable experience for drivers. The vehicle’s 264-kWh lithium-ion batteries, which charge up to 80% within 70 minutes, have an operating range of up to 150 miles based on the truck’s configuration and application. Regenerative braking can increase range by returning power up to 15% back into the battery, depending on the duty cycle. Cutting-edge battery monitoring technology relays the state of health for the energy source in real time, streamlining service needs and maximizing uptime.
