SAFER TRUCKS AT WORK

At the construction site, in the quarry and on the road – the Volvo FMX offers a safe workplace for the driver and everybody around. Take a closer look at how we made it possible.

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.

What makes the Volvo FMX safer?

Interior

Night mode

Switch to night mode and all lights on the dashboard, apart from the speedometer, dim to nothing. No distractions: just focus on the road ahead. Or backwards when connecting a trailer in darkness.

Close to the ground

For a construction truck, the Volvo FMX offers a driving position close to the ground. Excellent close-up contact with the area around the truck means safer work.

Alcolock

Alcohol doesn’t belong in traffic. The alcolock can be factory fitted and it’s a clear message to drivers and transport customers how seriously you take road safety.

Seatbelt

Around half of all fatalities in trucks could be avoided through use of a seatbelt – a fact worth remembering next time you hit the road.

Exterior 

Front Underrun Protection System

Absorbs some of the force in a collision by recoiling it backwards under the truck. Now made from lighter and stronger materials, and effective at even higher speeds. 

Lighting

We’ve integrated the front position lights and daytime running lights. As a result, the unit provides intelligent illumination from a compact package. The truck is always visible to other road users. 

Mirrors and visibility

An array of smart features is designed to give the driver real 360-degree visibility. But the windows and mirrors also give brilliant coverage. 

Side and rear underrun protection

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.
