Auto Today - - Update! -

VOLVO TRUCKS launched the FM 380 8x4 con­struc­tion truck to en­hance its pres­ence in the In­dian con­struc­tion seg­ment. The FM 380 8x4 joins FMX 460 8x4 and FM 460 8x4 trac­tor. The new truck comes equipped with a BSIV com­plaint 13-litre en­gine that is mated to the i-shift trans­mis­sion with 12 for­ward and 4 re­verse gears. The truck de­liv­ers 380bhp and 1,900 Nm. The com­pany is look­ing at de­liv­er­ing high ef­fi­ciency with en­hanced fea­tures, strength­ened chas­sis and a more pow­er­ful driv­e­line con­fig­u­ra­tion to get the job quickly for the cus­tomers. Volvo has in­tro­duced 23 Cu.M U-body and 19.5 Cu.M rock body op­tions on FM 380 in In­dia to serve the cus­tomers bet­ter as per their needs. In­dia is cur­rently wit­ness­ing road con­struc­tion ac­tiv­ity of over 40km per day and con­struc­tion projects across quar­ry­ing, ir­ri­gation, hy­del seg­ments are pick­ing up mo­men­tum for a while now. The sec­tor has seen a growth over the years.

Vinod Ag­gar­wal, MD & CEO, VECV said the world is chang­ing at an ever-faster pace and the com­pany wants to be a front-run­ner in the con­struc­tion truck seg­ment
