Volvo unveils its first truck model developed solely with electric propulsion. With the capacity for heavy loads and excellent driver visibility, the FM Low Entry is an electric truck optimized for safe and efficient driving in urban areas.

The new electric truck, Volvo FM Low Entry, received a five-star rating in the Direct Vision Standard, evaluating visibility and control for operations in London, effective in the fourth quarter of 2024.
This truck is adaptable for various transportation tasks, including waste management, distribution, and construction.

The cabin is designed to be spacious, low, and forward-moving, with easy access due to its flat floor and low step-in height.
