New Aero joins the Volvo FH line-up

Volvo FH Aero, new in FH range, offers up to 5% reduced emissions with advanced aerodynamics, available in four powertrain variants.

Manufacturers

Volvo Trucks’ iconic FH range has welcomed a new family member with the Volvo FH Aero. Featuring an optimised aerodynamic design and innovative features, the FH Aero takes energy efficiency to a new level. The model is available in four powertrain variants including biofuel and Volvo’s electric technology.

With improved aerodynamics and new technologies, such as Volvo’s Camera Monitoring System which replaces traditional exterior mirrors, the new FH Aero can reduce energy consumption and emissions by up to five per cent.

The new Volvo FH Aero is our most efficient truck ever as we continue to reduce CO2 from our entire product range

said Roger Alm, president of Volvo Trucks.

This is a Volvo truck at its best – a safe, beautifully designed and superior quality truck for tough long-haul tasks, designed for the success of our customers.

Selected as International Truck of the Year 2024, the Volvo FH Electric will also be offered in the new Aero version, an energy-efficient addition to Volvo’s already wide range of electric trucks. Furthermore, the Volvo FH16 becomes the most powerful truck in the industry with an all-new efficient 780 hp engine for the toughest assignments.

Regardless of which powertrain customers choose – electric, gas or diesel – all variants of the new FH Aero will benefit from lower energy consumption, longer range and a superior level of safety and driving experience.

The new Aero truck models will be rolled out step-by-step to markets during 2024-2025 in four versions – the FH Aero, FH Aero Electric, FH Aero gas-powered and FH16 Aero.

The front of the Volvo FH Aero cab has been extended by 24m versus the regular Volvo FH. This extension has been instrumental in creating a more aerodynamic truck cab. Not only does the better aerodynamics give lower fuel consumption – it provides better driving stability in windy conditions.

The improved aerodynamics also benefits the FH Aero Electric model through better free- rolling properties. This allows increased energy regeneration for feeding back into the battery while braking or going downhill, ready for use when needed in the next acceleration or uphill climb.

The new face of the FH Aero features a bold, big and easily recognisable Volvo Iron Mark – the largest in modern times on a Volvo truck – as well as the Volvo Spread Word Mark, clearly showing that this is the latest model from Volvo Trucks.

A new advanced Camera Monitoring System contributes greatly to both aerodynamics and safety. This new solution opens the visual field for the driver, improving the safety for the driver as well as the surrounding road users.
