  • Electric trucks have become reality and a necessity for many transport assignments. Are you operating in urban areas and need some guidance in your next step into electrified transport solutions? Here are some questions to consider.

  • The whole transport industry is facing tough demands to improve its climate impact. To speed up the transition towards more sustainable transports, Volvo Trucks’ objective is for its entire product range to be fossil-free by 2040. Electric trucks will play a key role to achieve this. It may sound as an unrealistic target, but in fact, the switch to electric vehicles is set to go much faster than most have anticipated. Here are some reasons why.

  • The thought of hitting the open road and never having to refuel your truck is certainly a nice one. And this is exactly what electric roads claim to be able to do. By charging vehicles as they cruise down the highway, proponents of electric highways say the technology can make charging faster and travel longer. But are electric roads really all that they are cracked up to be? Or just a niche solution for confined areas?

  • There is a lot of buzz around hydrogen and whether it might replace diesel in the future. But how does the technology work? What are the pros and cons of hydrogen? How does it stack up against electric trucks? Here are the answers to some of the most common questions about hydrogen fuel cells.

  • The transport industry is slowly waking up to the potential of Bio-LNG as a promising alternative to diesel. And rightfully so. Here are some of the reasons why Bio-LNG (liquefied natural gas) might be the fuel for future long-haul transport.

  • If it seems as though fewer and fewer people are talking about biodiesel you are not wrong. There are clear political and technological trends that suggest that biodiesel’s potential as a major alternative to diesel might be limited. Here are a few of the reasons why biodiesel’s fortunes are fading and what might take its’ place.

  • With so much talk around the rise of electric vehicles, for a while hydrogen and its potential in the transport industry seemed to be losing ground in the debate around cleaner transport. But is this really the case? Let’s take a look at hydrogen fuel cell technology and its potential as an alternative fuel.

  • In the debate surrounding electric trucks, it is usually the battery that is the main focus of attention when it comes to sustainability. So how clean are electric truck batteries?
