The new Volvo FH Carries Volvo Trucks into the Future

The Volvo FH has been Volvo Trucks' flagship model for almost 20 years. Now a new version of the truck is being launched.

"The new Volvo FH sets the benchmark for trucks in a number of areas. For example, it is the first truck to truly take a step into the information society," says Claes Nilsson, President Volvo Trucks.

The new Volvo FH is characterised by innovative thinking in every respect. Passive safety and active safety have been increased with a new safety cage and new warning systems. The cab is now up to one cubic metre bigger. Both the driver's environment and the relaxation area have been optimised to function in the best possible way. Smart technological solutions cut fuel consumption and excellent driving properties reduce transport times and improve safety on the road. Volvo Trucks offers solutions for three aspects of the trucking business that have the greatest impact on profitability: fuel efficiency, uptime and average speed.
