VOLVO FM

PREMIUM THINKING

ENTER YOUR COMFORT ZONE


When you’re comfortable, you drive well. So from the moment you climb into the Volvo FM (using the extra low entry step), to the moment you clock off (the bed is wide and pocket sprung), you’ll find everything you need for a relaxing workday.

STEP INTO YOUR OFFICE


Calm, professional and excellently equipped – this is a workplace you’ll actually want to spend time in. Colours and materials have been meticulously chosen. The dash curves elegantly around the space. And the extra-wide windscreen gives you a commanding view of the road.

EVERYTHING WITHIN REACH
No leaning. No stretching. No taking your eyes from the road. In the Volvo FM, your instruments are all exactly where you need them. Key information is just a glance away. And customisable switches ensure the functions you use most are close to hand.

LOADS OF ROOM FOR YOUR STUFF
From pens and clipboards to your phone and favourite mug – it’s often the small things that help you get the job done. That’s why we created loads of useful storage. The spacious front, under-bunk, rear and exterior storage can be tailored to your exact needs. And plenty of compartments keep things like paperwork organised. There’s even a PC holder, wastepaper basket and foldout two-litre bottle holder.

ARE YOU SITTING COMFORTABLY?
The driver’s seat offers excellent support, range and legroom. It can be adjusted 20cm forwards and backwards, and 10cm vertically. You will sit comfier than ever.

YOUR PERFECT DRIVING POSITION
The steering wheel can be adjusted 90mm vertically and tilted 28 degrees. Conveniently controlled by a foot pedal, it folds away easily when you enter or exit the cab. The ergonomic design offers different grip options – so it’s comfortable all day long. And you’ve got the option of leath...

ADDITIONAL FEATURES


Navigation
The Dynafleet OnBoard is directly integrated with the navigation system. Fleet managers can send destinations from the Dynafleet web portal to the navigation.

The navigation system accepts a range of direction inputs – including addresses, coordinates or a touch on the onscreen map.

Dynafleet OnBoard
Keep your assignments on track. Stay in touch with the office. Plan driving and resting times, and let Driver Coaching help you become more fuel-efficient. The system and all its functions are integrated with the navigation in the driver interface.

A powerful sound package
Get access to Deezer or TuneIn and stream your favourite audio entertainment. Switch on the DAB radio. Connect via USB, AUX or Bluetooth to your smartphone or tablet. Then, six speakers and a power output of 4×35W give a robust sound experience. You can add more speakers to your system to make playback even more perfect.

Voice activated
A seven-inch touch screen provides easy operation. You can also control the functions via buttons on the steering wheel, or with your voice. Two Bluetooth connections also mean that you can connect two devices at the same time – perhaps your work mobile and your private phone.

INTERIOR FEATURES


A smart way to sleep
Don’t compromise on sleep just because you spend a night in the cab. The lower bed is 70cm wide, features 16cm pocket springs and a choice of two firmness levels.

Electric parking brake
Engage it with an easy-access dashboard switch. It’ll also activate automatically when you switch the engine off, and release when you take off.

More than a key
Lock or unlock the cab from a distance. Turn on the lights so you can approach safely. And if you feel threatened, push the panic button to blast the horn.

Electronic climate control/em>
Set a preference and the electronic climate control keeps the cab temperature just where you like it.

Interior lighting
Thirteen energy-efficient and powerful light sources illuminate the cab. Lighting is easily controlled, either with three pre-set options or with the dimmer. When you’re driving in the dark, you can even switch to red lights to enhance your night vision.

LEGEND OF THE ROAD


The Volvo FM has a bold new design. Its soft curves, aerodynamic lines and distinctive grille make quite an impression on the road. It’s confident. Likeable. And every inch a Volvo.

URBAN DESIGN


It’s powerful. Aerodynamic. And built for the road. But the Volvo FM is also at home on city streets. It’s less assertive-looking than some of its stable mates. Less tall too. So it’s easy for pedestrians, cyclists and car drivers to make eye contact with the driver. And that means happier – and safer – journeys all round.

PART OF THE FAMILY


Re-thought. Re-drawn. Re-shaped. And more familiar than ever. With its aerodynamic lines and V-shaped headlights, the Volvo FM is definitely part of the family. Yet it’s retained the characteristics that made the previous model so popular. And judging by the brave new grille – a bit of attitude has been injected too.

THE FUEL-EFFICIENT VOLVO FM

FUEL EFFICIENCY


Fuel is everything. And because every drop counts, we’ve pioneered world-leading technologies, developed innovative services and devised fuel saving strategies that make a big difference to your bottom line.

SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE UPDATES DESIGNED TO SAVE FUEL


Volvo Torque Assist is a new software program included in the upgraded engines, designed to help the driver to operate their vehicle more fuel-efficiently when not using cruise control. The result is that any driver is able to achieve a high level of fuel-efficient driving regardless of their experience and expertise.

In addition, a number of hardware upgrades have also been implemented, to cut fuel consumption even further.

I-SHIFT – SIMPLE, DEPENDABLE AND VERY FUEL EFFICIENT


I-Shift maximizes performance and efficiency by monitoring and responding to vehicle mass, road inclination, speed and acceleration. It reduces fuel consumption by up to 5% compared to a manual gearbox. And up to 7% when combined with I-Roll momentum technology. It’s also really easy to use.

ALIGN YOUR WHEELS. INFLATE YOUR SAVINGS


Using the right tyres, at the correct pressure and on correctly aligned wheels and axles, can reduce fuel consumption by up to 14%. Our studies across Europe show that two out of three trucks have incorrectly aligned axles and wheels. So there’s a lot to be gained for very little effort.

AXLE ECONOMY


We’ve increased the axle load capacity to make the Volvo FM even more flexible. Its low chassis heights and stronger axle configurations help you find the optimal solution – one that lets you take assignments your competitors can’t, and get more from the ones you have.

YOU’LL FORGET YOU’RE DRIVING A TRUCK


The suspension in the Volvo FM has been re-engineered to match the handling performance of the Volvo FH. Course stability and steering control are noticeably improved. Engine vibration is reduced. And the Volvo Dynamic Steering option adds effortless precision.

STEADY AS A TRAIN


Redesigning the geometry of the front leaf suspension reduces roll forces and dramatically improves steering stability, giving you an enhanced feeling of control in any situation. The improved front suspension also reduces the amount of course correction required – so the truck follows your lead on the motorway and around tightest bends.

CONTROLLING FORCES


We’ve transformed the rear air suspension, too. The Volvo-patented design features stabilisers in front of the axle that prevent unwanted road forces transferring to the frame. The design also stops forces from the trailer causing the truck to oversteer when entering a bend.

VOLVO DYNAMIC STEERING


The biggest thing since power steering. Volvo Dynamic Steering uses ‘torque overlay’ to correct unintentional steering movements and to provide extra torque when needed. The result is perfect stability at high speed, total control and low speed and dramatically reduced strain on your muscles.
