Shah Alam – Volvo Trucks unveils the FH Series that offers the best-in-class fuel economy, reliability, and safety.

 Designed with the driver in mind and built to withstand the heaviest and most demanding operations, the Volvo FH is the ultimate long-haul that sets a new standard in transportation.

“The Volvo FH series is our latest premium flagship product that we believe will deliver exceptional benefits to our Malaysian customers. We have a long history in Malaysia and the addition of the Volvo FH to our product line, not only strengthens our current leading position but also puts us in a good place to take advantage of future opportunities in long-haul transport,” said Mats Nilsson, Managing Director of Volvo Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. 

Built for long-haul regional distribution and with superior torque and power, the Volvo FH series is highly capable of handling deliveries of oversized loads over long distances. Equipped with technology that creates ultimate onboard safety, a more economical driveline and high uptime, the Volvo FH series pushes the limits on what a premium truck can offer. “The Volvo FH has been driving progress for our customers and our company for more than 20 years. It is one of the most valuable products in our offering and the embodiment of our core values—quality, safety and environmental care.

“The introduction of the FH series raises the bar in innovative trucking solutions in Malaysia and gives our customers the golden opportunity to improve their productivity,” said Heléne Mellquist, Senior Vice President of Volvo Trucks International.

The Volvo FH offers superior handling made possible with the revolutionary Volvo Dynamic Steering (VDS) technology that provides perfect steering stability at high speeds and total control at low speeds. This makes the truck less sensitive to crosswinds and very stable on uneven roads.The Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) efficiently reduces the risk of skidding and rollovers. In risky situations, this feature engages itself by instantly reducing engine power and braking the truck and trailer.

Equipped with Volvo-patented stabilizers, shock absorbers that transfer load stress to the center of the chassis and a suspension feature which prevents vibrations from spreading through the truck, Volvo FH takes handling to unsurpassed levels in the trucking industry. 

The ergonomic design of the Volvo FH allows good drivers the opportunity to work as efficiently as possible thus increasing their employers’ profitability. The Volvo FH comes with a spacious and comfortable cabin, a sizeable bunk, rear and exterior storages that can be tailored to customers’ needs.

Another new feature in the Volvo FH is I-Park Cool, an integrated parking cooler that provides superior cooling capacity without compromising in-cab space or fuel consumption.
