It’s powerful. Aerodynamic. And built for the road. But the Volvo FM is also at home on city streets. It’s less assertive-looking than some of its stable mates. Less tall too. So it’s easy for pedestrians, cyclists and car drivers to make eye contact with the driver. And that means happier – and safer – journeys all round. Our aim was to create a solid, flowing shape, instead of a front and two sides. This is why the lines and graphics sweep around the whole cab.
The truck’s stance, its visual attitude, was a key consideration, too. The form expresses the truck’s efficiency and dynamics. It appears to lean forward, wheels pressing at the ground. It’s bold. Assertive. It’s ready to work.
PART OF THE FAMILY
Re-thought. Re-drawn. Re-shaped. And more familiar than ever. With its aerodynamic lines and V-shaped headlights, the Volvo FM is definitely part of the family. Yet it’s retained the characteristics that made the previous model so popular. And judging by the brave new grille – a bit of attitude has been injected too.
