The New Gas-Powered Volvo FM Lng

High Performance, Low Emissions

A gas-powered truck with a powertrain based on Volvo diesel engine technology. Nobody else offers anything like it. The gas-powered Volvo FM LNG comes with a 420 or 460 hp engine that delivers performance and productivity on par with a regular Volvo FM with the same power rating. 

Our strategy moving towards sustainable transport

Towards Zero Emissions

Energy efficiency and alternative fuels are essential in our strategy moving towards sustainable transports. The Volvo FM LNG opens up long-term possibilities to move into renewable fuels – making the transport industry less dependent on fossil energy sources.

These are all important steps towards our vision of zero CO2 emissions and transports that are sustainable – both for the environment and businesses.

Smaller footprints with Volvo FM LNG

Smaller Footprints

The gas-powered Volvo FM LNG runs on Liquefied Natural Gas – LNG. As a result it emits 20% less* CO2 than a regular Volvo FM. Allowing transport operators to take big steps towards sustainable transports. When fuelled with bio-LNG, CO2 emissions can be reduced by 100%*.

Same performance as a diesel-powered truck

Same Performance

The Volvo FM LNG offers the same performance as a diesel-powered truck and an operating range for regional and long-haul transports. But with a smaller CO2 footprint. This makes it a competitive choice for both transport business and the environment. And an important step for Volvo Trucks in moving towards sustainable transports. 

Good opportunity to reduce fuel costs

Bottom Line Friendly

Volvo’s new gas-powered trucks offer the same fuel efficiency as our diesel-powered equivalents. However, since LNG is often cheaper, there’s a good opportunity for operators to reduce the fuel costs. 

Volvo Trucks see LNG as a long-term energy source

Liquefied Natural Gas - LNG

Natural gas has a huge potential as a substitute for diesel in trucks. There’s a good supply globally and Volvo Trucks see this as a long-term energy source, emitting considerably less CO2 in comparison. When cooled down to low temperatures, the gas liquefies (LNG) and reduces in volume. This means you can have enough fuel on board to drive heavy regional and long-haul transports. 

* This covers the emissions from the vehicle during usage, so called “tank to wheel”.

Society demands cleaner alternative fuels. LNG offers potential as both an immediate and long term solution with a considerably lower climate impact.
