Volvo Trucks to launch new FM

The Volvo FM is next in line in the rapid renewal of Volvo Trucks’ product range – with the groundbreaking innovation Volvo Dynamic Steering as one of its prominent features. The truck will be launched in Europe on March 19. 

“The new Volvo FM will provide drivers with a completely new level of handling and an innovative cab environment. Transport companies will have an efficient truck with increased flexibility,” says Claes Nilsson, President Volvo Trucks.

The Volvo FM will be equipped with Volvo Dynamic Steering, which combines a conventional hydraulic power steering system with an electronically regulated electric motor fitted to the steering gear. The system gives the driver effortless steering at low speeds as well as unbeatable directional stability on the open road.
