Volvo launches Euro 5 trucks in UAE
The new trucks are equipped with on-board diagnostics which provide information regarding the emission levels of the trucks during inspection
Al-Futtaim Auto & Machinery Company (Famco), exclusive distributor of Volvo Trucks in the UAE, has launched Volvo Trucks that meets Euro 5 emission standards.
The new Volvo Trucks are equipped with on-board diagnostics (OBD), which helps monitor the level of AdBlue liquid that together with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology helps lower emission levels. The OBD also easily provides authorities with information regarding the emission levels of the trucks during inspection.
Alongside the launch of the Euro 5 models, Famco also launched the Globetrotter cab for the Volvo FH. The Globetrotter cab is 340mm taller than the current Volvo FH sleeper cabs and is aerodynamically designed with smooth surfaces and rounded corners at the front which provides better fuel efficiency. The windscreen is bonded to the body, resulting in less noise in the cabin and better crash protection.
Vladimir Knezevic, managing director of Famco UAE, said, “As the whole industry is shifting its focus to decreased fuel consumption and increased fleet efficiency, Volvo Trucks with its advanced safety features and Euro 5 emission standards is in a class of its own. The new trucks in addition to supporting the government’s efforts to lower pollution levels also ensure our customers drive environment-friendly trucks that are more fuel-efficient and provides greater productivity and returns.”
Jan-Erik Thoren, managing director of Volvo Trucks Middle East, said, “The Volvo FH with the new Globetrotter cab is the future of trucks and sets new standards in drivability. The new trucks make no compromises on power, safety, comfort and versatility and are perfectly suited for construction and long-haul transportation.”
