Volvo Trucks Malaysia launches new FH Truck Series

Volvo Trucks Malaysia recently held a truck handover ceremony of the new Volvo FH truck series to three of its Malaysian customers in conjunction with the official launch of the new trucks in the country.

The event was marked by a presentation of mock key and truck scale model by Volvo Trucks’ senior management comprising Helene Mellquist, Senior Vice President, Volvo Trucks Sales Area International, Lars Erik Forsbergh, Managing Director, Volvo Trucks Hub Southeast Asia and Japan, and Mats Nilsson, Managing Director, Volvo Malaysia to the senior management representatives of Chip Jun, Central Kargo and Haiweima.

The event was also graced by Swedish Ambassador to Malaysia, His Excellency Dag Juhlin-Dannfelt as guest-of-honor.

All the three Volvo Trucks’ customers who took part in the truck handover ceremony are in the business of Petroleum & Chemicals, Building & Construction and Demanding Heavy Haulage. Each customer has purchased a unit of the Volvo FH in conjunction with the launch.

Mats Nilsson, Managing Director, Volvo Malaysia, said, ”The Volvo FH series are the ultimate long-haul trucks for customers who demand extra power and performance. The introduction of Volvo FH in Malaysia represents an important milestone for our business and puts us in a good position to achieve future growth ambitions.”

Built for long-haul distribution, the Volvo FH series are premium heavy-duty commercial vehicles that offer massive torque and power, best-in-class fuel economy, reliability and safety. The truck can withstand the heaviest and most demanding operations, and highly capable of handling deliveries of over-sized and super-heavy loads such as bulk refined materials, machinery and equipment for power plants, substations, petrochemical plants, and infrastructure and construction sites.

In addition, Volvo FH series are also designed and engineered with the driver in mind, providing superior handling, spacious cab, and excellent ergonomics and comfort.

“We believe the new Volvo FH series will set new industry benchmark and offer exceptional benefits to our customers in Malaysia, especially where fuel economy, safety, power and performance are concerned,” added Nilsson.

He also shared that one of the many great features in the new Volvo FH is the I-Shift with ultra-low crawler gears which allows the truck to drive at speeds as low as 0.5-2kmph and start off from standstill while hauling 325 tonnes.

The technology offers a completely new opportunity for heavy trucks with automated transmissions to control their speed when hauling heavy loads. The improved drivability makes it much easier to operate in challenging terrains such as construction sites, mines or when driving up steep roads and hills.
