Behind the wheel driving or working around the truck. The Volvo FM is built from the ground up for a safer working environment. Check out what we mean!
We know what's going on out there. We know what accidents look like. That's why we do so many extra tests that are not called for by legislation.
These trucks are built for visibility – but there’s always the risk of a blind spot. That’s where the new cornering camera comes in. It activates during turns and streams a side view into the display.
Helps you keep a safe distance to the vehicle in front. It also warns you of any threat and activates the emergency brake if you get too close.
This system tracks road markings with a camera. When it looks like you’re straying over them, it’ll ping you a signal.
These lights flash when the brakes are applied sharply. This in turn alerts the vehicles behind you, helping to avoid collisions.
This system monitors your driving behaviour. If it records anything erratic about it, you’ll receive an alert asking you to consider a break. And if you continue driving and get a second warning, your cruise control is turned off in order to alert you.
This feature activates a radar while you’re changing lane. This way, you’re kept informed of any obstacles in your blind spots.
The Electronic Stability Control uses engine power and individual wheel brakes to reduce the risk of skidding and rollover.
I-Shift makes driving safer by timing each gear change perfectly. There’s no heavy clutch, and no stick to wrestle with. The simplicity of the system reduces driver fatigue and ups focus, helping you to concentrate on the road and the traffic around you.
Having full control over the vehicle when manoeuvring in narrow passages or reversing is key to operate safely. The I-Shift with crawler gears allows really low speeds with full torque and control over power delivery.
Effortless steering and rock solid stability in every situation. Less strain on the shoulders makes driving less fatigue. And if one of the steering tyres is punctured, the driver can still easily keep control over the vehicle.
A well-maintained truck is also a safe truck. With a Volvo Service Contract, the truck gets service and maintenance tailored after how your truck is used.
A trained driver works efficiently without compromising on safety. Volvo Trucks driver training programmes give drivers the tools to do just that.
Swedish cab strength test. Barrier test. Roll-over test. Sled- test. Head impact test. The Volvo FM has passed them all. And the tests are thorough – with the interior fittings in place and full storage compartments. We know that this is among the safest trucks on the market.
Under-run protection systems in the rear and on the sides, prevent smaller vehicles from becoming wedged under the truck in the event of a collision.
