Construction trucks are all about robustness and mobility. And Volvo Trucks has developed the sturdiest and most innovative construction truck in the market. But since Volvo is a relative newcomer in the segment – they are known for their long haul trucks – the sturdiness needed to be proven.
What could be the toughest possible test for the Volvo FMX? The idea was to put the truck in the hands of a little child. Four-year-old Sophie got to drive it with a remote control – for real. And to challenge the truck, we filled a construction site with all sorts of obstacles.
This live test was set up to demonstrate the sturdiness and mobility of the Volvo FMX. An extremely strong cage construction, cast-iron front corners and skid plate of high-grade steel make this a very tough truck. And thanks to Automatic Traction Control – a revolutionary new feature that automatically engages the front axle when needed – the truck won’t get stuck.
