Throughout the multi-year project, Volvo Trucks North America was able to demo the Volvo VNR Electric trucks in daily fleet routes with NFI and DHE. These demonstrations were enabling of Volvo in order to gain real-world operating insight to contribute to the commercialization of the Volvo VNR Electric model of December 2020.
