Volvo VNR lineup expands

John G Smith

Volvo is introducing a VNR 660 model, for customers who are looking to shed weight or need to deal with length restrictions.

It comes with a 61-inch high-roof sleeper, complementing the VNR 640 with 61-inch mid-roof sleeper. The new offering will enter production in March 2020 in limited quantities.

The truckmaker also announced it will be offering FlowBelow wheel covers and fairings as a factory-installed option, beginning in the second quarter of 2020. That system reportedly improves fuel economy by about 1% over the most aerodynamic package offered by Volvo today, the OEM says.
