Integrated lubrication and trailer connection indicator is available as option for specific variants.

Volvo EBS (Electronically controlled Brake System) disc brakes are available with program packages STD and MED for rigids and tractors. ESP is available for tractors and rigids with 4×2, 6×2 and 6×4 drive. In this way Volvo can offer ESP on virtually all ADR applications and EMS combinations. The brake range also includes Volvo Z-cam drum brakes with ABS (Anti-lock Braking System).
In addition to the EBS Standard package, EBS Medium adds the following features.
EBS status monitoring via the TEA2+ vehicle electronic system and Volvo Tech Tool.
The brakes are only released once there is sufficient engine torque to propel the vehicle forward.
Brake lining warning – calculates the remaining mileage available with the current brake linings.
The parking brake is released when the driver pushes the accelerator pedal and a gear is selected (only I-Shift gearbox).
In addition to the program packages there are the following options:
Enables the driver to request pulse braking of the trailer. The brake is then automatically activated and the risk of jack-knifing is minimised. Only for rigids.
The brake stability system applies the brakes individually on each wheel, thereby providing stability for the entire vehicle combination and counteracting jack-knifing, rollover and trailer swing. ESP fulfils the legislation of Electronic Vehicle Stability Control.
When panic braking from speeds above 50 km/h, the brake lights flash with four flashes per second.
