Volvo Trucks has released details of the new FH Aero, featuring an aerodynamic design and next-level energy efficiency, reducing energy consumption and emissions by up to 5%. The model is available in four powertrains: the FH Aero, FH Aero Electric, FH Aero gas-powered and FH16 Aero: the most powerful truck available with a 780hp engine option. These will be rolled out during 2024-2025.
The FH also features Volvo’s Camera Monitoring System, which replaces traditional exterior mirrors, contributing to aerodynamics and safety. This opens the overall field of vision for the driver, improving the safety of the driver and the surrounding road users.
The camera system has a positive impact on the driver’s visibility in rainy and dark conditions, but also in direct sunlight and when driving in tunnels. When driving with a trailer, the camera system has an auto-panning function, following the turning trailer.
“The new Volvo FH Aero is our most efficient truck ever as we continue to reduce CO2 from our entire product range,” says Roger Alm, President of Volvo Trucks. “This is a Volvo truck at its best – a safe, beautifully designed and superior quality truck for tough long-haul tasks, designed for the success of our customers.”
The front of the Volvo FH Aero cab has been extended by 24 centimetres to create a more aerodynamic truck cab, providing better aerodynamics and lower fuel consumption and improved stability in windy conditions.
