RusAutoNewsCom. – As annouced by the press office of Volvo Trucks Russia, the trucks from the new Volvo FM model range, first to roll off the conveyor of the Kaluga plant of Volvo, have been manufactured in two versions: long-haul truck and chassis with Globetrotter cabins in the frozen mercury shade of grey. The vehicles are equipped with 13 litre, 460 hp Euro-5 standard engines with I-Shift automatic transmissions, LED headlights and aluminum rims. 

Meanwhile, the Volvo FM chassis has a 6×4 wheel configuration with full air suspension, as opposed to the 6×2 wheel arrangement on the Volvo FM long-haul truck with a rear elevating axle with spring suspension of the front axle and air suspension of the rear axles. 

Both vehicles will be used in the transport of grain products in the southern regions of Russia. The financing of the transaction has been carried out by Volvo Financial Services. 

BelAvtoServis has been cooperating with Volvo Trucks for almost a decade and the car fleet of the company currently includes over 55 Volvo vehicles as a result. One of the co-owners of the company Sergei Shulgin has expressed his happiness, due to the fact that the production of the new generation of Volvo trucks has started with the vehicles of BelAvtoServis in the Kaluga plant. Shulgin has been implementing the plans of the company on the expansion of business and the growth of the vehicle fleet with his colleague Hrach Antonosyan for almost two decades. BelAvtoServis has plans to order an additional amount of 10 trucks from the Kaluga plant of Volvo in the near future. 

As one may remember, the biggest ever premier in the history of Volvo Trucks took place last February with the presentation of the new generation of the trucks and the production orders were made available as of September 2020. In order to stimulate the sales, Volvo Trucks will launch a large-scale exhibition tour throughout 40 Russian and Belarusian cities in autumn and offer its customers advantageous package offers on the trucks from the new range.
