Volvo extends low-entry cab range

Volvo Trucks has extended the low-entry cab range for the Volvo FE with several new features centring on improved safety and productivity for drivers.

The low-entry cab has a version for the driver and a single passenger with the option of an air-suspended passenger seat. This offers the same visibility as the current model with the low driving position and the extra window in the passenger door increases the side visibility.

In addition, the low instep lets the driver work more efficiently whilst, at the same time, reducing the risk for knee and ankle injuries.

The new cab option is an extension of the current low-entry fleet, which can transport up to three passengers and offers a walk-through floor. These functions are demanded in some transport operations, but not necessary in all cases where a low entry is an advantage.

The new version has an engine tunnel instead of a flat floor, but the improved passenger comfort with optional air-suspended seat makes the concept more suitable for city distribution work.

The Volvo FE now offers powertrain options including a diesel and D8K Euro-6 engines.

The Volvo FE and the smaller Volvo FL are now also optionally available with both adaptive cruise control and an adjustable speed limiter.
