GREENSBORO, N.C. — Volvo Trucks has made in-cab LED lighting standard on all vehicles, and is offering LED headlamps on its VNL and VNX models.
Volvo says the LED interior lights and headlamps consume one-eighth the energy required by standard incandescent bulbs and are designed to deliver a significantly longer life.
The headlamps, designed by Truck-Lite, improve nighttime visibility through an expanded beam pattern and provide daylight-type light colouring, Volvo says.
The interior LED lighting provides longer life than standard bulbs and places less strain on the truck’s batteries.
“In addition to improved efficiency and visibility compared with incandescent lighting, LEDs are designed to last far longer, so use of LED lighting can help reduce vehicle downtime and potential CSA violations,” said Jason Spence, Volvo Trucks product marketing manager.
