The New Volvo Truck Range Built With the Driver in Mind

Volvo introduced four new trucks, with a strong focus on the driver environment, safety and productivity.

The four heavy duty trucks are the Volvo FH, FH16, FM and FMX, representing about two thirds of Volvo Truck’s deliveries.

So, what’s new? The Volvo FM and Volvo FMX has a brand new cab, as well as many of the same instrument display functions as their larger Volvo counterparts. The interior volume has been increased by up to one cubic meter, providing better comfort and more working room.

In the Volvo FH and Volvo FH16 safety has been further improved with functions such as adaptive high beam headlights. The system improves safety for all road users by automatically disabling selected segments of the LED high beam when the truck approaches oncoming traffic or another vehicle from behind.

The drivers area now has a completely new interface for information and communication, aimed at making it easier to overview and manage different functions, creating less stress and distraction. The instrument display is fully digital, with a 12-inch screen that makes it easy for the driver to choose the information needed at any time. An optional 9-inch side display can provide infotainment, navigation assistance, transport information and camera monitoring.

This new truck range will help drivers work even more safely and productively and give customers stronger arguments when competing to attract best drivers.
