by Punjabi Trucking

Sales have officially started for the all-new Volvo VNL, a truck designed to change everything and set the new standard for the North American trucking industry in fuel efficiency, safety, sustainability, driver productivity, connectivity, and customer uptime, bringing unprecedented customer value to fleets and owner-operators. Since the announcement of the all-new Volvo VNL in January, dealerships have been participating in extensive competency development, with e-learning and in-person instructor-led courses from Volvo Trucks Academy, to be fully trained to support customers even before the trucks begin to arrive at dealerships. Production will start later this summer with customer deliveries beginning later this year. Demo trucks will start arriving at dealerships in the late summer.

“The Volvo VNL has long been the flagship model series at Volvo Trucks North America and is the premier long-haul truck in the United States and Canada,” said Peter Voorhoeve, president, of Volvo Trucks North America. “We wanted to set a new standard for fuel efficiency, safety, driver productivity, connectivity, and customer uptime and to transform everything about the future of the heavy-duty trucking industry. We’re confident we’ve done that. Our customers have expressed that they are eager to deploy them into their fleet, and we are excited to be opening the sales books to get those trucks slotted and ready for production.”

The all-new Volvo VNL is revolutionizing the trucking industry by setting the new standard on all fronts. With cutting-edge technology and engineering, it is establishing a new benchmark in fuel efficiency, adding value to the customer’s bottom line economically and reducing emissions. Safety features are paramount, using advanced proprietary systems to protect drivers, pedestrians, and cargo. Connectivity has been enhanced for drivers and fleet managers. Uptime is optimized through the Blue Service contract and connectivity-powered intelligent maintenance. Additionally, with a Volvo service contract, appointments are scheduled in advance with parts ready to get the truck back on the road. The all-new Volvo VNL prioritizes driver well-being and productivity with ergonomic designs and intuitive controls, creating a comfortable and efficient work environment. The benefit of all these advancements is magnified by an overarching commitment to sustainability, ensuring that progress and performance go hand in hand with environmental responsibility.

Volvo Trucks has revolutionized the spec’ing process with the all-new Volvo VNL, introducing packaging to simplify the experience and drive a higher level of customer value. To explore the all-new Volvo VNL features and trim levels in an interactive way, Volvo Trucks has developed a new, state-of-the-art online configurator for the Volvo VNL. The configurator provides detailed information on the features and benefits of each trim level and cab option, as well as a 360-degree view of the truck’s interior and exterior. The all-new Volvo VNL is conveniently packaged into four exterior and interior trim levels — Core, Edge, Edge Black, and Ultimate — with six cab configurations, each designed to fit customers’ preferences, brand identity, and operational use. Three cab configurations – the VNL860, VNL840, and VNL300 – are available to order immediately, while the remaining configurations will follow soon after.

Volvo Trucks is holding immersive dealer and customer launch events throughout the summer at the Volvo Trucks Customer Center in Dublin, Virginia. The Volvo Trucks Customer Center includes a customer experience track, recently expanded to three miles, offering a fully immersive driving experience of the full range of Volvo trucks. Customers can work with their local dealers to walk through the new configurator to design the ideal truck for their fleet then

Volvo Trucks has estimated total savings of more than $20,000 annually per truck with the all-new Volvo VNL, considering fuel efficiency gains, connectivity, safety, and driver retention. This calculation factors in reduced fuel costs attributed to fuel efficiency, as well as increased uptime and reduced maintenance costs due to extended service intervals and intelligent maintenance. Connectivity with remote programming keeps trucks updated, resulting in 24% more uptime than trucks in non-updated fleets. The advanced safety features account for potentially significant savings, reducing the chance of both forward and side collisions. Heavy Duty Trucking Magazine in 2023 estimated the value of driver retention as $9,748 in recruitment and training costs saved.

“In the world of trucking, every mile counts. With the all-new Volvo VNL, we’re not just delivering a vehicle; we are delivering significant value to our customers,” said Magnus Koeck, vice president, of strategy, marketing, and brand management, Volvo Trucks North America. “Volvo Trucks’ commitment to innovation means more than just savings on our customers’ bottom line — it’s about empowering fleets to go further, do more, and thrive. With more than $20,000 per truck in potential savings, the all-new Volvo VNL isn’t just a truck — it’s a game-changer for fleets and owner-operators.”

The sales start for the all-new Volvo VNL is just the beginning of an industry transformation as it is the platform for all future technologies, encompassing future transportation solutions such as battery-electric, fuel cell, and internal combustion engines powered by renewable fuels, including hydrogen. Introducing the first 24-volt electrical infrastructure in the North American trucking industry, along with the introduction of enhanced active safety features in this latest generation Volvo VNL, sets the standard for the future commercialization of fully autonomous trucks. The all-new Volvo VNL is a cornerstone of Volvo Trucks’ vision towards achieving zero emissions and zero accidents.
