Orders open for new Volvo VNL

Orders open for new Volvo VNL

Production will start later this summer, and Volvo expects customer deliveries to begin later this year.

North American sales are now open for the new Volvo VNL, Volvo Trucks North America announced. Since the announcement of the truck in January, Volvo says dealerships have participated in extensive competency development, with e-learning and in-person instructor-led courses from Volvo Trucks Academy, to be fully trained to support customers before VNLs arrived at dealerships. Production will start later this summer, around the same time demo trucks will arrive at dealerships. Volvo expects customer deliveries to begin later this year.

“We wanted to set a new standard for fuel efficiency, safety, driver productivity, connectivity, and customer uptime and to transform everything about the future of the heavy-duty trucking industry. We’re confident we’ve done that,” said Peter Voorhoeve, president of Volvo Trucks North America. “Our customers have expressed that they are eager to deploy them into their fleet, and we are excited to be opening the sales books to get those trucks slotted and ready for production.”

As Fleet Equipment previously covered, Volvo Trucks changed the spec’ing process with the new VNL, introducing packaging to simplify the experience and drive a higher level of customer value. To explore features and trim levels in an interactive way, Volvo Trucks has developed a new online configurator for the Volvo VNL. The configurator provides details on features of each trim level and cab option, as well as a 360-degree view of the truck interior and exterior. The VNL is packaged into four exterior and interior trim levels—Core, Edge, Edge Black and Ultimate—with six cab configurations, each designed to fit preference, brand identity, and operational use. Three cab configurations – the VNL860, VNL840, and VNL300 – are available to order immediately, while the remaining configurations will follow soon after.

Volvo notes that it will be holding dealer and customer launch events throughout the summer at the Volvo Trucks Customer Center in Dublin, Virginia. The Volvo Trucks Customer Center includes a customer experience track, recently expanded to three miles, offering a fully immersive driving experience of the full range of Volvo trucks. Customers can work with their local dealers to walk through the new configurator to design the ideal truck for their fleet then visit the Volvo Trucks Customer Center for an opportunity to experience the VNL firsthand.
