Volvo Trucks delivers 10,000 units in India

Volvo Trucks, the country´s largest truck manufacturer in premium European segment achieved the landmark of crossing ten thousand truck sales. The company´s recently launched technologically advanced Volvo FMX 440 8×4 I-Shift, which is leader in its class, was handed over as the 10,000th vehicle to M/s Mahalaxmi Infracontracts Pvt Ltd, who have over 350 Volvo trucks and a long standing relationship of over a decade with Volvo. Driving change for the industry since its rollout of the first truck way back in 1998, Volvo Trucks has been committed to driving progress in the industry. Even when the commercial vehicle industry in India was working with age old technology and drivers were not at the forefront of the product and service development, Volvo being true to its Scandinavian heritage, was the first to introduce fully air-conditioned and crash tested cabin in trucks and pioneered the Driver Training concept by establishing the Driver training centre even before the first truck was rolled out. Over the years, Volvo Trucks in India have become synonymous with the mining and construction industries where the 8×4 concept introduced in the mining segment has become the industry norm in the country and the innovative 10×4 Dump truck concept introduced in 2012 has also established itself. Elucidating the development since 1998, Rama Rao AS, Senior Vice President, Sales Marketing and Aftermarket, Volvo Trucks, VECV said, ¨Our commitment to continuous improvement drives us forward and inspires us to be focussed on driving progress in the industry. You can see our innovative approach at work in all our processes, but we don´t innovate just to impress ourselves or others.¨ Speaking at the handover, Pierre Jean Verge Salamon, President, Volvo Group Truck Sales, India said, ¨Over the last 17 years, Volvo Trucks has been driving progress in the Indian commercial vehicle industry. From the first high performance European tractor trailer to the recent launched technologically advanced truck range, we have personified performance, productivity, and profitability for our customers. We understand what our customers need and will come to need. That is why we constantly innovate.¨
