Mats: Volvo gets into autohauler biz

Avatar photo

Volvo has taken another plunge into the autohauler market through a partnership with Fontaine Modification. The company is basing the new model on its VN420 unit, which will be transformed by Fontaine for autohaulers who require the shortest distance between the road surface and the roof of the cab, and the new models will be available in either a low roof or low cab option. The rigs will be a full two inches lower than comparable trucks in its class, making it ideal for the niche autohauler market.
