For many years, bonnet trucks have been losing ground everywhere except the US and Australia. Even in Brazil, where Scania’s long nose has been used for a long time, new models of this configuration have not been produced for more than 10 years.
Of course, truckers continue to dream of modern bonnet trucks. Partially this niche is closed by private companies such as Vlastuin Truckopbouw. For example, it produces small-scale “nosy” Scania based on modern serial models.
In Brazil, there is another popular model – Volvo NH, which still has not appeared a successor. Felix Ludwig, a German designer specializing in creating mods for truck simulators such as Euro Truck Simulator 2, has published a project on what the new Volvo NH based on current-generation FH trucks could be.
