Volvo Trucks for Serious Hauling

Chances are, no one is going to ever haul 20 trailers connected together to form a 300-meter long chain, trailers that are carrying 40 containers full of Volvo spare parts.

Electronics

Volvo Trucks’ Electric Cooling

Although fuel may be comparatively inexpensive right now, in the long haul there is a good likelihood that there will be price increases.

Production

Volvo’s Carbon-Free Factory

It sometimes seems as though when the whole notion of “CO2-neutral” activities come up, some people tend to think that it is something rather limited in scope, like planting a whole lot of seedlings in a park to offset emissions from driving to the park.

Diesel

Diesel Developments

Is the cup ~30% full or ~70% empty when it comes to clean diesel engines on Class 3-8 trucks?

Design

Volvo Trucks and Other Swedish Gear

When you think “fashion” and “long-haul trucks,” you might think of. . .a flat-billed trucker’s hat.

Interiors & Electronics

Leave the Driving to SARTRE

The Volvo Trucks model FH is designed for the long haul.

Hybrid
