Driving progress for decades

The story of Volvo Trucks so far isn't just about the process of building, creating, developing and refining our vehicles. True, there's a fascinating story to be told there - one that includes all of our iconic models, ground-breaking technologies and the innovations that brought us this far. But it's also a story about the development of the truck in general. Not least, how this mode of transport went from being something of a luxury - a complement to goods trains, cargo ships and even horses & carts - to one of the main modes of transport that sets the world moving today. In this section you'll find detailed information about our models through the decades, set against the backdrop of history. We hope that it provides you with some interesting reading.
