Volvo Group

Organisation Introduction

Volvo Group drives prosperity through transport and infrastructure solutions, offering trucks, buses, construction equipment, power solutions for marine and industrial applications, financing and services that increase our customers’ uptime and productivity. We are committed to shaping the future landscape of sustainable transport and infrastructure solutions.

Climate change, population growth and increasing urbanization are shifting the landscape and expectations on transport and infrastructure. In all our actions, we must consider how to reduce climate impact, use the world’s resources more efficiently, and conduct business more responsibly. Together with our customers and supply chain partners, governments, societies and other stakeholders, we are moving quickly to develop and introduce transport and infrastructure solutions that aim to reach our sustainability targets.


Zefes will be a very important initiative to prepare for the electrified welfare society towards 2030. Volvo will gain knowledge of the ecosystem around electrified long haul transport together with all involved stakeholders and understanding the needs of our customers and partners will enable us to take the next steps in developing the right solutions for electrifying long haul transports.

Through Zefes we can also clarify and initiate the continued build of charging infrastructure for HD vehicles.

What in ZEFES?

In Zefes Volvo will focus on further development of both BEV and FCEV to meet the demands of electrified Long Haul operation, and the Zefes project and partners are expected to give valuable input to that work, making sure we develop the right products for our customer needs.

Additionally, Volvo will together with our partners demonstrate the feasibility of electrified long haul operation in 4 different use cases.
