This Volvo VN780 will travel North America as part of the 2010 Driving Success Tour from Volvo Trucks North America, showcasing the latest in fuel-efficiency and safety equipment.
GREENSBORO, N.C. — Volvo is taking its 2010 Driving Success Tour on the road starting in May. The tour features a Volvo VN780 – outfitted with advanced production technology – which will visit Volvo Truck dealerships across North America to educate customers how to maximize fuel economy, drive productivity and reduce costs.
Features on the VN780 include the EPA2010-certified Volvo D13 engine with Volvo I-Shift automated manual transmission (AMT), wide-base tires, a battery-powered bunk air conditioning system, full aerodynamic fairings, and the Volvo Enhanced Cruise collision avoidance system.
“Volvo has the most exciting news in the trucking industry, the most tested and proven emissions technology for 2010, and a clear plan for delivering these benefits to our customers,” said Scott Kress, Volvo Trucks’ senior vice-president of sales and marketing.
“The 2010 Driving Success Tour is designed to take this message directly to as many people as possible, in person. We know customers find this type of activity to be very useful, since it frees them up from the need to travel, and delivers a large amount of useful information.”
The 2010 Driving Success Tour will kick off in the western US in May and travel to other regions of the US before arriving in Canada in September. Firm dates have not yet been set. For the most recent updates, visit www.volvotour2010.com or call 800-444-RSVP.
