One will go to garbage and recycling collector Renova, and the other will go to hauler TGM.

The truck is called the the Volvo FL Electric, and it is the company's first all-electric commercial truck.

With better air quality and less noise in the city, it is possible to plan for housing and infrastructure more freely than at present. They can be used in indoor terminals and environmental zones.

"An electric vehicle solution for a range of urban applications has been a global priority of Volvo Trucks, and we look forward to offering this cutting edge technology to operators in Australia and New Zealand in the future", Peden adds. The quieter operation of the trucks means that more work can be done at night without disturbing residents. Volvo Buses has been operating since 2010 and has sold over 4,000 electric buses.

Sale of the FL Electric is planned to start next year in European markets, and the first customers have reportedly lined up already.

"Such a solution may encompass everything from route analysis and battery optimization, to servicing and financing".

Volvo is looking to take "a holistic view of electrification" when it comes to the vehicles, taking into consideration, for example, how the raw materials for the batteries are extracted.

The truck operates on between two and six lithium-ion batteries with 100-300 kWh, providing up to 186 miles of range with six batteries.

The first trucks in the Volvo FL Electric range are now entering regular operation with customers in Gothenburg, Sweden, the home of Volvo Trucks.
