There is always a suitable Volvo truck for every existing heavy-duty operation. Volvo designs and builds trucks for more than 100 different countries, all over the world. And although the Volvo Global Family of trucks consists of a number of vehicles which are visually quite different, they share the basic technology and a number of key components.
A typical example of intelligent design
The NH12, introduced in Brazil in 1999 as the successor to the NL10 EDC and the NL12 EDC, is a typical example of the efficient and intelligent design of Volvo trucks. The NH12 is a Conventional truck, which is marketed in most parts of the world (excluding Europe, where length regulation makes it less efficient, and Australia, where a special NH Conventional truck was produced up until 2004).
Despite the fact that it looks fairly similar to the North American NH truck, it is in fact more related to the European FH and FM trucks than to its American counterparts.
