Built for the local and regional haul, the new VNR Electric by Volvo was the first-to-market heavy-duty electric truck.

It offers the same three platforms as the diesel-powered VNR, as well as the power, comforts and safety drivers know with the VNR. However, the Electric has zero emissions, creating a cleaner planet for us all to enjoy. Volvo introduced the Class 8 VNR Electric to the West Coast in June 2020 through the Volvo LIGHTS project, which TEC Equipment has been proud to participate in since day one.
