A cab designed for busy days

Made for drivers that move into, out of and around the cab. The Volvo FM offers comfort and space in the same league as its bigger siblings. The direct vision and supporting solutions cater for a high level of safety in urban areas. Take a closer look at the truck’s superior working environment in the gallery below.

Camera Monitor System

The Camera Monitor System clears the direct view and opens up your visual field in both good and challenging conditions. Night vision improves your view in the dark. With the passenger corner camera, you uncover the hidden area close to the truck on the passenger side to improve safety.

Infotainment and audio

A driver interface that’s easy to use, an infotainment system and an audio system available in two levels make the Volvo FM a comfortable experience, whether you're driving or resting.

Closer to the ground

The Volvo FM's cab design is low with a driving position close to the ground. From here, making eye contact with other road users and having control of the areas close to the truck is easier. And the more you get in and out of the cab during the day, the more you’ll love the convenient height. For electric city assignments, there’s a supersmooth low entry version available.

Driver support systems for your safety

If there’s a certain risk of a collision ahead, Collision Warning with Emergency Brake is there to alert you and apply the brakes if needed. Side Collision Avoidance Support and Door Opening Warning cover both your sides. They use radar sensors to reduce the risk of collisions with vehicles and other road users and warn you from opening the doors – if there’s a risk of a collision. All directions count in safety.

A chassis ready for your challenges

Whether you're going to pick up containers in ports, transport chemicals, maneuver through construction sites or build an extremely specialized superstructure on a rigid truck - the Volvo FM can be tailored for it. This is our most versatile truck model. Dive deeper into our chassis in the image gallery.

A flexible chassis

The chassis is tailored for you in our factory. You’ll be surprised how light we can build a Volvo FM once we know how you’ll use it. Tandem Axle Lift, the 10-tonne front axles and our steering tag and pusher axles allow for massive load capacity and maneuverability. And with the Work Remote, you can control the bodywork and powertrain when you’re away from the driver's seat.

Help for body builders

When you order your Volvo truck, we prepare it for body building in our factory. The body builder gets access to the Volvo Bodybuilder Instructions (VBI) online portal with all the details needed to finish your truck for use, efficiently and with the highest possible quality. A dedicated module lets the body builder tap into the truck’s electrical system to tailor the functions needed.

A cab for your whole crew

Some operations require more than a driver and a co-driver. The Volvo crew cab can accommodate a crew of up to nine. Entry and exit are made quick and safe. To facilitate the body building process, we placed components like fuel tanks, batteries and exhaust aftertreatment system under the cab.
