Driver Productivity

Designed with the driver in mind.

Trucks don’t make profits. Truck drivers do. Our job is to understand driver productivity better than any other company, and turn that knowledge into profits for you.

We do this by surrounding every driver with the optimum work environment and the best support services. To meet the needs of drivers – today and tomorrow – our driver environment offers redesigned working and living spaces built on a proven, solid chassis that delivers a smooth ride, and precise, nimble handling. Optimized seat design and positioning, along with a dashboard, put the driver comfortably in command, helping them maximize productivity.

Position Perfect Steering

Because every driver is one of a kind.

No two drivers are exactly alike, so we set out to design a steering solution that lets drivers set the ideal height and angle, no matter who’s behind the wheel. The result is Volvo’s new Position Perfect Steering. With a three-way neck tilt, drivers have an almost endless array of choices for positioning the wheel exactly where they prefer it for maximum comfort.

Work space. Living space. Productive space.

Critical data, clearly displayed.

A more symmetrical instrument cluster combines well-organized traditional gauge faces with a high-resolution, five-inch color LCD screen. The programmable LCD screen can be configured to display a wide range of vehicle data alerts and system settings.

System control, close at hand.

To keep the driver’s hands on the wheel, multiple systems can be controlled through steering wheel-mounted switches. The touch-friendly switch layout enables cruise control, entertainment and other settings to be changed without diverting attention from the road. The steering wheel and controls are always close at hand, thanks to a three-motion tilt/telescope wheel.

Comfort comes standard.

To meet the comfort, health, and safety needs of drivers —today and tomorrow— our seating has been refined based on extensive ergonomic research. From smallest to largest, drivers will benefit from optimized seat placement, increased range of adjustment, and more accessible controls. Our optional ReeferSeat™, a built-in cooler under the passenger seat also provides cold storage—accessible from driver seat—for snacks and drinks.
