Volvo Trucks' new truck range on public display for the first time; celebrating 40 years in Russia

Volvo Trucks has launched five new truck models since September 2012 - and the whole new range goes on public display for the first time at the Comtrans Exhibition in Moscow (September 10-14, 2013).

"The trucks in our stand are the result of one of the most intensive
and exciting periods in the history of Volvo Trucks. With the most modern and innovative Volvo line-up ever, we now have an outstanding ability to help customers in all segments to improve productivity and profitability," said Claes Nilsson, President of Volvo Trucks.

"We are so confident in our quality that we now offer Volvo FH and Volvo FM customers a new Gold service contract that includes a maximum uptime guarantee."

With telematics monitoring key components, the workshop can follow the actual wear and condition of various components online," added Nilsson.

Celebrating 40 years in Russia
Displaying the new truck range is a great way to celebrate 40 years of Volvo Trucks  in Russia. The first 100 tractors were delivered back in 1973. At that time, this was the biggest delivery of foreign trucks to the Russian market. The present Volvo population on the Russian roads totals almost 70,000 trucks.

In 2009, Volvo also became the first foreign truck manufacturer to establish full-scale production in Russia. Next year, production of the new, advanced trucks will start locally at the factory in Kaluga.
