Volvo VNR Electric I-Shift

It’s still a VNR

While the VNR Electric is revolutionary, the truck itself is immediately familiar, based on the highly popular Volvo VNR. Drivers will instantly recognize the manuerability, visibility, and safety that are part of every VNR.
VNR Electric Quietness

A great workplace just got even better

With electromobility comes several benefits like quieter cities, cleaner air, better traffic flow and a better working environment for all. Less noise also means less stress and reduced fatigue for the driver, improving their work environment.

We can't compromise

The VNR Electric incorporates our highest safety standards in cab and chassis construction, with additional protection built into the battery cage. And includes the latest active safety features such as Volvo Active Driver Assist and lane departure warning.
VNR Electric Active Driver Assist

Safety is standard

Included with the VNR Electric is Volvo Active Driver Assist, which is forward collision avoidance technology that helps drivers adapt and respond to changing traffic situations to help reduce the risk of collision. We take camera and radar technology and combine them together, working in unison to give the driver the best information available.
VNR Electric Battery Cage

Batteries too

Collision tests. Barrier tests. Head impact tests. The VNR Electric cab has passed them all and they’re the toughest cabs around. You’re always well protected. Now, a side impact protection barrier integrated into the mounting system of the battery box.
