Volvo Trucks has offered a first glimpse of its proposed, spacious new FH XXL cab.

Volvo Trucks has showcased its concept FH XXL cab to customers and partners before the Volvo Trucks customer dinner, which took place during the 2017 Brisbane Truck Show.

"We are extremely excited to be introducing the FH XXL cab concept here in Australia," says Mitch Peden, vice president of Volvo Truck Australia.

"As always we have been listening closely to our customers and there has been a strong and clear demand for this product."

According to Volvo Trucks, the FH XXL concept cab was designed with the driver in mind, being 200 millimetres longer than the current XL Globetrotter cab, including noticeable improvements to the driver’s work and living conditions with additional space for accommodation and storage. "Showcasing the FH XXL cab signals our intention to bring this project to commercial reality," Peden says.

"There have been some obvious challenges to developing a product that is considered niche in the global product portfolio. However the fact that we are able to showcase a concept cab today shows that we are committed to bringing this product to market while also underlining the importance of the Australian market and customers within Volvo Trucks’ global operations."

The concept cab is currently not a part of the Volvo Trucks product portfolio and will undergo rigorous testing to meet stringent safety and quality standards before it is introduced in Australia.
