An experiment involving electric trucks in Southern California is set to reach new milestones this year in the field of vehicle electrification.

Together with 14 other organizations, the Volvo LIGHTS (Low Impact Green Heavy Transport Solutions) project aims to unite private and public stakeholders in the design and wide-scale implementation of electric commercial trucks.

The $90 million initiative will continue gathering real-world data in 2021 with two fleets demonstrating the capabilities of Volvo’s VNR Electric Class 8 truck to move freight between two of North America’s busiest ports, the Port of Long Beach and the Port of Los Angeles.
