New Volvo FL provides up to 200 kg higher payload
The Volvo FL, Volvo Trucks’ specialist in city distribution, is about to become even more productive. The compact 5-litre engine for Euro 6 is offered to the 14 and 16 tonne variants and releases 200 kg extra payload. Additionally, Volvo Trucks’ fleet management system Dynafleet can now be ordered directly from the factory.
“We want even more people to discover the capabilities of Volvo FL. The new combination with lighter driveline and high load capacity is particularly suitable for those who have high demands on productivity and are looking for a cost effective transport solution,” says Pernilla Sustovic, segment manager for distribution at Volvo Trucks.
Volvo’s four-cylinder, five-litre Euro 6 engine is available as 240hp / 900Nm and 210hp / 800Nm. Both engines will be offered to a wider group of Volvo FL customers, including 14 and 16 tonnes. As the engine and gearbox together weigh 200 kg less than the six-cylinder Euro-6 option, the opportunity for corresponding extra payload is created.
“The five-litre motor may be a suitable option for those who would not normally use the maximum gross combination weight but at the same time value the flexibility of being able to drive with heavier loads if required,” says Pernilla Sustovic.
The whole Volvo Trucks’ product range – including the Volvo FL and Volvo FE – can now be ordered with the fleet management system Dynafleet included, directly from the factory. Using this service, clients can monitor operations in real-time via a web interface or an app and get valuable information that can help increase efficiency. Dynafleet contains services for driver times, positioning, fuel efficiency and environmental information, and is payable via a monthly subscription.
