The New Volvo FH – a Major Challenge for Volvo Trucks' Designers

Truck design is about much more than just colour, shape and attractive lines. Behind the new, safer, larger and more ergonomically optimised Volvo FH lies a significant design challenge. "Coming up with solutions where design and function go hand in hand was one of our most important tasks," says Rikard Orell, Design Director at Volvo Trucks.

From the first stroke of his pen on the drawing board to complete truck, the process took just over five years. Several thousand hours and at least an equal number of decisions and procedures later it was finally ready – the new Volvo FH.

Available material includes an edited package with and without narration, driving footage of the truck as well as images.
