Netgroup Engineering Powers Volvo’s First Electric Truck – Now at NC Museum

Netgroup Engineering is thrilled to have played a key role in the design of the VNM183, Volvo Group’s inaugural electric semi-truck in North America. This groundbreaking collaboration is now on display at the NC Museum of Transportation, proudly showcasing the signatures of our president and engineers on its side. This project reflects our commitment to industry innovation and sets a positive trajectory for both Netgroup Engineering and the future of electric trucking in the region.


Crafted in part by the team at Netgroup Engineering, the VNM183 boasts a range of advanced features for enhanced performance. Tailored for regional and short-haul operations, the truck is designed with a shorter bumper-to-back-of-cab length and an impressive 50-degree wheel cut, making it adept at navigating tight spaces during short-haul runs in urban areas with heavy traffic. Beyond its urban prowess, this truck is well-suited for long-haul journeys, featuring lightweight and aerodynamic elements that enhance maneuverability and visibility in crowded urban areas. The VNM183 stands out for its dependability, specifically designed for daily pickup and delivery routes, all housed within a comfortably accessible cab.

This significant milestone also marks a turning point for the industry, and underscores Netgroup Engineering’s position as a leader in shaping the future of transportation. As the world continues to prioritize eco-friendly alternatives, this collaboration paves the way for a greener, more sustainable future, positioning both companies at the forefront of innovation and progress in the automotive sector.
