Extra Eyes on the road


We built the Volvo FMX for the toughest working conditions on earth. Then designed a range of optional features to keep you safe – whether you’re working in a gravel pit or driving on the open road.

The Stretch Brake

When you’re turning or driving downhill on a slippery road, the Stretch Brake kicks in to help prevent jack-knifing. It works by applying braking pulses to the trailer, which stretches the vehicle combination. You can choose to automatically activate the Stretch Brake in risky situations, at speeds up to 50 km/h. Stretch brake is available for both rigid trucks and tractors.

Emergency Brake Light

If you slam on the brakes, the brake lights flash rapidly to alert the vehicles behind you – an easy way of avoiding life threatening rear-end collisions.

Adaptive Cruise Control and Collision Warning with Emergency Brake

In heavy traffic, radar-based Adaptive Cruise Control helps you keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front by controlling the accelerator and all available brakes.

If there is a risk of impact, our intuitive Collision Warning system alerts you by projecting a light onto your windscreen. And the Emergency Brake automatically activates, significantly reducing the risk of severe injuries.

Lane Changing Support

When activated, Lane Changing Support uses radar technology to scan the blind spot on your passenger side for other road users. If it’s not safe to change lanes, you’re alerted with a buzzer and a flashing icon next to the passenger mirror.

Electronic Stability Program

Our Electronic Stability Program (ESP) efficiently reduces the risk of skidding and rollovers. In risky situations it instantly steps in, reducing engine power and applying brakes to each wheel of the truck and trailer individually. ESP is now available for most truck specifications – both tractors and rigids.

Enhanced performance – bad roads

Optimal gear changes. Start assists. Support for off-road driving in poor conditions and on hilly terrain. This software program tailors your I-Shift transmission to give you maximum support in the challenges you face every day.
