Driving progress

It’s what we've been doing since the beginning. And we're going to keep doing it for a long time to come. The journey into a safer and more sustainable future continues.

Volvo gave the world the three-point seatbelt. The milestones of Volvo pioneering also include the introduction of the first safety cab, ABS brakes as standard and airbags – in fact, our innovations very often relate to safety.

Our ambition is to offer the most fuel-efficient trucks you can buy. Through our smart trucks and platooning technology we're taking fuel efficiency even further, and eventually we’ll only utilize renewable fuels and become totally fossil independent. We are, in fact, facing a major technology shift.

The world is changing at an increasingly rapid pace. However, one thing always stays the same: the need for safe and efficient supply of goods to households, companies and municipalities. The demand for transport will grow. And it'll certainly take new forms and exist under different conditions. But the basic need will remain - and we'll be there to take on the challenge.

Making a bigger difference

Less transport means less strain on the environment. We can look at several ways to reduce the impact of transportation. Perhaps we should increase truck capacity, increase volume utilisation, improve connectivity, or develop highly specialised vehicles for well-defined purposes. However, even if intercontinental transport decreases, road transport will continue to grow.

As a result of new technologies and changes in consumer behaviour, transport requirements will change as well. Smarter and more efficient transport helps to make a bigger difference.

The World Citizen

Volvo Trucks is a truly global truck brand. We make the only trucks that are proven in all climates and working conditions all over the world. From the humidity of Indonesian rain forests and the thin atmosphere of the Andes, to the bitter –40°C winters of Svalbard, the aggressive and corrosive environments of South American salt deserts and the scorching heat of Saharan quarries.

World citizenship, with its vast customer interface, is what fuels Volvo Trucks’ innovations. We listen, we learn and we apply our passion for engineering to making professional life easier for our customers. And with people and expertise, sales and service in more than 140 markets, we have ample opportunity to listen.
