SHOT LIST
Edited Package with narration: In this reportage Claes Nilsson, the president of Volvo Trucks, confirms that the launch of the new FH-series will take place on the 5th of September. He also reveals one of the trucks new features. VO: On the fifth of September, Volvo Trucks will launch the next generation of heavy-duty vehicles: The new Volvo FH-series. Claes Nilsson, president Volvo Trucks: I'm so excited about the upcoming launch, that we now, after 19 years of the current FH is able to launch a new generation of heavy duty trucks is something that is so exciting and I can not really wait to get to the date when we can talk more about the details of this new product. VO 2: One of the major improvements in the new Volvo FH-series is its superior handling characteristics. This is largely due the all-new Individual Front Suspension, the IFS, where each wheel is now individually installed. This means that the truck is sensitive to the driver but insensitive to road obstacles, such as bumps and curves, since vibrations aren't transferred from one side to the other. Claes Nilsson, president Volvo Trucks: The IFS behaves, makes the truck behave like a car. It's a fantastic feeling and how you really can be relaxed as a driver, and feel comfortable. There is so much more I want to tell about this truck, but you have to wait. It is almost difficult to wait for me, to give you all the nice features but there will be so much more to tell you one day and I can only invite you to take part in our launch and welcome to the future of Volvo Trucks.
