The Volvo FE CNG. Gas power towards zero emissions

Powerful and productive with low emissions. The Volvo FE CNG with a gas-powered engine is perfect for waste collection and delivery transports and other assignments where low noise and a reduced environmental footprint are competitive features.

Easy to operate

It looks like a regular Volvo FE, but the Volvo FE CNG comes with an engine powered exclusively by compressed natural gas or compressed biogas. It uses spark plug technology and puts out 320 hp and 1356 Nm of torque. The truck is equipped with automatic transmission. So, you can expect the same productivity and easy driving characteristics as you get from a diesel-powered Volvo FE.

Lower emissions

The combustion of natural gas or biogas is completely odourless. Plus, it emits very low levels of harmful particles. When operating on biogas, the tank to wheel CO₂ emissions are reduced by up to 100% compared to a diesel truck. The exhaust gases are so low on particles that no other exhaust aftertreatment than a three-way catalyst is required.

A reliable solution

The engine utilises spark ignition technology, and only requires a three-way catalyst for emissions control. No SCR, EGR or Adblue. Choose between 2×4 or 2×3 gas tanks mounted on both sides of the chassis. The operating range is up to 400 km for light delivery transports and up to 250 km in waste collection.

Many cities around the world are looking for alternatives to diesel trucks. Renewable fuel is often a requirement for winning contracts - particularly when it comes to waste management. With the Volvo FE CNG, we can now offer companies operating in urban environments a truck with a significantly lower environmental impact.

Combine with a low-entry cab

Combine the low emissions powertrain with an easy access low-entry cab that improves city safety and makes the job easier for your drivers.
