In line with the company’s expectations set last fall, Volvo said last week that its all-electric Class 8 VNR tractor will soon be deployed in testing this year at the Port of Los Angeles, with fleets NFI and Dependable Highway Express slated to put the trucks in operation.

The tests will be conducted with California’s South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), and Volvo will perform demonstrations later this year. The company says the electric VNR will enter production next year.
