Volvo launches new range of trucks in India

Volvo Trucks announced the launch of new range of trucks in India, including the flagship Volvo FH which was voted `International Truck of the Year 2014`  in Europe.

“Comprising of Volvo FH, the Volvo FM and the Volvo FMX, the range is the most technologically advanced in India. It boasts of important improvements in all crucial areas: from productivity, fuel efficiency, safety to maximising uptime,” the company claims.

The range also introduces unique features such as the intelligent I-Shift automated gearbox technology optimized for tough and rugged mining operating conditions, as well as Volvo`s unique Dynafleet telematics system which allows following up on fuel consumption over time, and – together with Volvo Trucks Driver Training services – coach drivers into further improving their fuel saving skills.

Dynafleet also enables customers to see in real time the location of their vehicles and vehicles` performance data that are critical to have control on their fleet, letting the customer fully focus on running their core business.

Commenting on the launch, Vinod Aggarwal, CEO of VE Commercial Vehicles, said, “With new hi-tech capabilities and a wide range of benefits, the trucks are equipped to serve every Volvo customer in India, from construction and mining to heavy haulage.”

Philippe Divry, President, Volvo India, and Senior Vice President of the Volvo Group said, “Volvo has invested more than $ 3 billion and 14 million engineering hours in this project. And just to make perfectly sure of the outcome, we have tested the vehicles for 21 mn kms.”

He also adds, “We are the undisputed leader of the premium truck segment in India, and this new range will keep moving the bar further in terms of productivity and efficiency for our customers.”
