Press Release 17 October 2014

Leading manufacturer Volvo Trucks will display its FMX split cab as part of Thai-Swedish Chamber of Commerce’s (TSCC) ‘Beyond Innovation’ exhibition, organised in collaboration with CentralWorld to celebrate 25th anniversary. The unique event (a first in terms of displaying Swedish innovations and brands to the public in Thailand) “Hej! Swedish 2014 @ CentralWorld” is the title of the event, held at Eden1.

Leading Swedish companies operating in Thailand (members of TSCC sponsoring the event) will display their innovations and technologies during October 24-26, 2014.

Volvo Trucks is at the forefront of total transport solution leading in innovative technology, fuel-efficient trucks and with the highest quality standards on the market, thus representing Swedish quality and innovations well.

The Volvo FMX split cab is equipped with I-Shift, which is an automated gearbox, air suspension seat for driving comfort, ergonomic design dashboard, USB outlet, comfortable bed for long haul transport, and a Volvo Dynamic Steering.

“ The new Volvo FMX is built for extreme mobility. Its driven front axle has been completely redesigned with an off-road approach angle. It is also easy to handle even in rough road condition with Volvo Dynamic Steering, the newest breakthrough steering system in truck industry. Even the hamster can drive a truck!”
