Africa is a continent that is rapidly evolving, with numerous nations implementing tax incentives to speed up the importation of electric vehicles and now creating their own two and three-wheel vehicles.
Minibuses are the primary form of public transportation in many African cities, with motorbikes serving as a backup. According to estimates, car emissions are responsible for almost 90% of the urban air pollution in developing nations.
Emissions from transportation-related sources are also a significant contributor to chronic respiratory diseases and early mortality in Africa.
In order to reduce transportation’s carbon footprint and enhance the air quality in African cities, initiatives to promote the usage of electric trucks ought to be applauded.
The Africa Electric Truck Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Volvo Trucks introduces an electric vehicle with a greater range. Volvo VNR Electric’s first-generation vehicle has a 240-kilometre operational range (150 miles).
Volvo Trucks is still at the forefront of the global rollout of zero-emission trucks. The business has now introduced an improved Volvo VNR Electric in North America with up to 85% more range and quicker charging.
A new improved class 8 electric truck has been introduced, with a range of operation of up to 440 km (275 miles) and higher energy storage of up to 565 kWh.
A new six battery-package option and enhanced battery architecture are two factors that contributed to the increased performance.
With a charging capacity of 250kW, the new Volvo VNR Electric also cuts down on the amount of time needed to fully recharge. For the six-battery package, this means 90 minutes, and for the four-battery version, 60 minutes.
