New Volvo FM revealed at CV Show



The new Volvo FM was the centre of attention at the Commercial Vehicle Show in the UK today, with attendees excited to get an up-close look at the new Volvo model.

The new Volvo FM is making public debut at the Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham, as part of a dazzling presentation. Strong emphasis has been placed on the updated driving environment and improved productivity for customers.

"To use a football analogy, the FM is an invaluable all-rounder that does an equally brilliant job wherever and whenever it is needed", said Claes Nilsson, President of Volvo Trucks, at the press conference today. "With its top-notch flexibility and transport efficiency, the FM covers the needs of most haulers."

The new Volvo FM was officially launched on March 19th, but at the Commercial Vehicle Show, it is the first time the public can get an up-close look at all the new features. Putting the vehicle on show in Birmingham makes sense since the Volvo FM has long been a favourite with UK drivers and fleet owners.

"The customer base for the FM in the UK reflects its popularity as a fantastic driver and payload friendly truck. In fact, every third new Volvo truck sold here is an FM. The new truck is designed to ensure excellent driving properties, while at the same time the hauler benefits from maximum uptime and minimum fuel costs", said Claes Nilsson.
