Passing the toughest safety test in the world.
Should an accident occur, you're well protected. Our strongest cabs yet have been subjected to the unique Swedish impact test. It's the most stringent in the world, and has been developed to mimic the forces involved in common accidents. The tests suggest you have a have a good chance of surviving if you roll over or crash into a stationary object at 80 km/h.
A design all about dynamics.
Sweeping lines embrace the cab. The front grille provides a distinct attitude. Dynamic curves around the windscreen emphasise the aerodynamics. Volvo FH is a truck that looks like it's moving even when it's standing still. From a design perspective, this cab is something entirely new. Still, there's no mistaking it's a Volvo.
New FUPS. Saving lives at even higher speeds.
Volvo was the first manufacturer to introduce front underrun protection, long before it became mandatory. With the new FUPS we further exceed the legal requirements to save the lives of other road users. And to save truck drivers from terrible traumas. The system is now effective at even higher speeds. In the event of a collision it can retract as much as 30 cm (compared with the previous 10).
