Electromobility

Electromobility is changing the automotive world. Imagine indoor bus stops at hospitals or shopping malls, or night-time deliveries being made by silent distribution trucks. At Volvo Group, we are taking the knowledge from building vehicles and automotive systems, and creating new technology that will not only make our roads and cities less noisy and polluted, but also change the world of construction forever.

Hydrogen fuel cells

Electrification of commercial vehicles will play an important role on the journey towards a carbon neutral society. Using hydrogen fuel cells to power the electric driveline looks like a promising alternative for heavy transport and demanding long-haul applications. The electric driveline is the foundation, but while batteries as an energy source is and will continue to be a key technology, there are other pieces of the e-puzzle.

Battery electric vehicles are a good solution for city distribution, city buses, regional haulage and similar applications. For use cases where you carry heavier loads or drive longer distances, the weight of the batteries themselves and the driving distance until you need to re-charge, become limiting factors. Here, hydrogen fuel cells are likely to be an interesting alternative.
