New products

During the year, Volvo Trucks was the first manufacturer to launch trucks that comply with the new emission regulation according to Euro V that took effect on January 1, 2012.

The year also saw the launch of the all-new medium-duty truck Volvo VM, which is produced specifically for the South American market. The truck is adapted to applications such as regional and city distribution.

In order to meet the increasing demand for buses in the front engine segment, which in South America amounts to as many as 16,000 buses annually, Volvo Buses launched a new front engine bus that was well-received when it was introduced.
