So, Volvo have launched a ‘Limited-Edition’ version of their FH tractor unit.  Nothing radical there – it happens all the time.  What makes it slightly more confusing is that they chose to call it the ‘Unlimited Edition’.

Oh well, stranger things happen at sea.

What is interesting is the charitable aspect of the offer.  In recognition of the work the NHS and all their staff have put in during the Covid-19 crisis, Volvo Trucks will be making a £1,000 donation to “NHS Charities Together” for every FH Unlimited Edition vehicle sold in the UK.

About the FH Tractor Unit

Truck operators will be able to choose between three main configurations – depending on the duty cycle for the truck – or maybe if they are simply power addicts.

What is consistent across the configurations is the choice of cab – all come with the Globetrotter XL cab interior, a full range of active safety equipment and a choice of three drivelines packed with Volvo’s latest technologies.

The new models will allow customers to select between their preference for fuel saving potential, productivity and performance, or a vehicle packed with power.

Available as a 6×2 pusher or tag axle tractor unit, the FH Unlimited Edition is being offered in Clearcoat Baiguini Blue or Titan Silver Metallic paintwork, although fleets may select their own solid or metallic cab colour if preferred. To stand out from the crowd, all vehicles will benefit from an enhanced exterior finish, chrome detailing, Alcoa Dura Bright alloy wheels, Conger Black premium chassis paint and Unlimited Edition cab graphics.

Setting the model apart is premium black leather upholstery embossed with the Volvo iron-mark, a black leather steering wheel, black seats and black door panels – for enhanced looks and an comfortable driving environment. Other features include an electrically adjustable driver’s seat, 7” touchscreen, single bunk living package and a high level of standard equipment including under bunk fridge, microwave and television preparation.

Driveline options include a choice between the Volvo FH 500 with I-Save, offering the best fuel saving potential thanks to the latest generation turbo-compound engine. This configuration sets a new benchmark for fuel and environmental performance, with the additional 300Nm of low down torque boosting journey times.

For maximum productivity and performance, fleets can opt for the Volvo FH 500 with I-Shift Dual Clutch, enabling seamless gear changes using sports car technology that is unique in the heavy truck market. For applications which demand a lot of shifting, this gearbox comes into its own.

Completing the line-up is the Volvo FH 540 – offering top-of-the-range power and torque from the FH range, combined with Volvo’s proven I-Shift transmission – the benchmark by which all others are measured.

All Volvo FH Unlimited Edition models come with Volvo’s Long Haul Fuel Package+, which comprises long-haul gear changing software with I-Roll and the latest generation I-See predictive cruise control.

John Comer, Head of Product Management at Volvo Trucks UK says:

With the Volvo FH Unlimited Edition we’re taking the very definition of premium to the next level, with a model where every single component and feature is designed to deliver productivity, performance, safety and driving pleasure.

Comer continues, “Plus we’re including a three year subscription to Volvo Connect, allowing operators to access driver, vehicle and position data in real time at the office, and manage efficiencies through the driver app. With this level of performance information at their fingertips, customers will be able to see in an instant the tweaks they need to make to secure a genuine improvement in profitability.”
