Volkswagen Caminhoes e Onibus is speeding up the introduction of electric trucks to Brazil: as well as configuring new models using the exclusive new solution, the company has just announced the formation of a pioneering e-Consortium at its Resende development and production complex. This is the first time in the world that a vehicle manufacturer has established a complete support structure for its electric trucks, from manufacturing the vehicles to setting up the charging infrastructure and managing the life cycle of the battery pack, leveraging the commitment of the company’s fully integrated supply chain. With this new concept, the e-Consortium will facilitate access to electric technology in the commercial vehicle sector.

The company continually improves the technology used in its vehicles. To achieve this, VWCO has developed a patented engineering solution for its electric vehicles underpinned by a flexible architecture which supports the rapid integration into the vehicle of components sourced from the TRATON GROUP and its alliance partners. This innovative approach demonstrates VWCO`s ability to develop electric vehicles and the company`s commitment to supporting TRATON`s strategy to become a Global Champion in the sector.

It is in this context that the VW e-Delivery range continues to expand, as the company studies the entry-level commercial vehicle segment in addition to the current 11 and 14-ton models. Being shown internationally for the first time, the VW e-Delivery 4-ton model has been developed with the same flexible architecture solution used in the other vehicles in the electric range.
