It might seem obvious. One of the most important factors, besides the actual driving, is the constant exiting and entering of the cab. And much more so in the inner city distribution segment, with its frequent starts and stops. But fear not, with a Volvo FL this part of the workday has not been forgotten. Rather, we’ve made it the best it could possibly be.
The two-stair instep of the Volvo FL has been fitted with a slip-free coated surface to ensure that you always find your footing on those slippery and rainy days. Furthermore the latticed stairs will make sure no snow, sleet or treacherous puddles impede your passage.
To make it easier on dark night assignments, so that you always find your way back into the safety of your cab, the instep has been equipped with lights to guide your way.
The handholds of the instep are designed to provide maximum support at the easiest reach level possible. It might seem like a small detail, but over-reaching is both frustrating and strenuous – with a Volvo FL everything has been designed to fit.
To facilitate the entries and exits, the instep has been positioned at the most convenient angle. Instead of placing the steps at a straight angle directly outside the cab door, they have been slightly turned, thus making them both easier – and safer – to climb.
For a driver of a 10–12 tonne Volvo FL, the instep can be even more accessible. By choosing the 17.5" wheels, the instep gets closer to the ground, minimising the effort even further.
