Heavy-duty: 2023 HDAW event theme is ‘Shift. Adapt. Grow.’
U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer M. Granholm recently visited with Volvo Group leaders while touring TEC Equipment, the company’s first EV-certified dealership selling and servicing Mack and Volvo Trucks’ electric Class 8 models, in Fontana, California.
Secretary Granholm discussed the transformative investments in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act to increase access to affordable electric vehicles, and build a strong labor market able to compete for high-quality jobs.
During the visit to TEC Equipment in Fontana, Granholm and Aguilar experienced first-hand the Volvo VNR Electric, a battery-electric, zero-tailpipe-emissions transport solution ideally suited for regional haul, drayage, pickup and local delivery.
They learned about the outcomes from the Volvo LIGHTS project, an innovative three-year project that brought together 14 public and private partners, including Volvo Group, Volvo Trucks and TEC Equipment.
