Electric on the road in the canton of Valais

The 100% electric Volvo truck from the fleet of Galliker's Conthey branch has recently been encountered in the Sion/Sierre and Martigny region. On the road serving food and pharmaceutical customers, the noise- and emission-free truck is positively perceived not only by Galliker's customers but also by pedestrians in the towns and neighbours of the pick-up and delivery locations.

The electric truck from Volvo Trucks is also appreciated by the drivers. Noise and vibrations in the cab are much lower than with diesel engines, and driving is quiet and stress-free. What's more, an electric motor delivers its maximum torque straight away, which makes for smooth power delivery - ideal for constant stopping and starting in urban traffic.
