    close to nothing.
    volvo will promiss you whatever you want to hear, after you buy they dont care anymore.
    volvo and its company renault has over 50% of market share in EV in europe, but this will come with a cost.
    you cant just sell anyone EV truck, there must be a case study if this is possible or not.

    As far as I know, probably all Volvo EVs in Sweden are leased and probably all over Europe to. Finland is a rather flat country and Schenker trucks seldom are loaded to max weight. Depending on needs, EVs can be equipped with larger or smaller batteries. No problem with that.
