Introducing the Volvo Concept Truck featuring a hybrid powertrain
The Volvo Concept Truck can save up to 30 per cent in fuel consumption and emissions, including CO2. Our first hybrid powertrain for heavy-duty trucks in long haul applications recovers energy when driving downhill or when braking. The energy is stored and used to power the truck in electric mode on flat roads or low gradients.
