Novum Tech – electric retrofit​

The aim of the project was to assess the environmental, technical and economic feasibility of electric retrofitting for heavy goods vehicles. The project was enabled through collaboration with Novum Tech, a startup with expertise in battery design and production, and with financial support from the ADEME, the French Agency for Ecological Transition​

The next milestone for this project is certification of the converted truck in order to validate compliance with current regulations. Once this approval has been obtained, Renault Trucks will begin a phase of tests under real operating conditions in partnership with Clovis Grand Paris in France.​

The automotive industry is evolving due to electromobility. Consider enclosed bus stops in a hospital or a mall, or silent delivery trucks making deliveries at night. At Volvo Group, we are using the expertise gained from developing automobiles and automotive systems to develop new technology that will not only reduce noise and pollution on our roads and in our cities, but also completely alter the construction industry.


We think that automation will change how the majority of us use commercial transportation options today. In terms of productivity, safety, energy, and fuel efficiency, automation will have a positive impact on both our customers and society as a whole.
