Anticipating the need for electric delivery vehicles, the Renault Group, Volvo Group and CMA CGM are joining forces to pioneer an all-new generation of fully electric vans and associated services. 


Driven by the need to reduce CO2 emissions and cut costs, as well as meet stricter rules to access city roads, the project will create a new Software Defined Vehicle platform and a wide ecosystem of customized solutions, with production scheduled for 2026. 

Volvo says that adopting the new Software Defined Vehicle architecture, the vehicle will onboard unprecedented capabilities to monitor the delivery activity and user business performance, thus reducing cost of usage. 

Martin Lundstedt, President, and CEO of Volvo Group said, “We are excited to take yet another step in our journey towards sustainable transport solutions through the intended establishment of a new company. Volvo Group is keen to continue to offer its customers complete transport solutions that help them decarbonise their value chains. We see a growing demand for clean, efficient, and safe urban transportation. Partnership and collaboration are key to achieve this.” 

The future company is planned to operate under its own corporate identity and will be based in France.
