On the Russian market, the sales of the new and the current range of trucks will be carried out in parallel until the production of Volvo in Kaluga can completely switch to the production of new generation vehicles. Such a transition, by the way, is planned for April next year, according to the press service of the company. It is highlighted that all new Volvo cars are equipped with a redesigned instrument panel, which includes new storage compartments and a 12-inch high-resolution fully digital display. There is also the possibility of additional equipping the workspace with a small information display with a diagonal of 9 inches and support for navigation and information functions, as well as the ability to output data from eight cameras.
Added to the lineup of new trucks and security systems. For example, cars are set to maximum speed, which prevents unwanted acceleration when driving on slopes. Among other things, the new adaptive cruise control system now functions at all speeds. As an option, customers can also purchase dynamic steering – a proprietary development of Volvo engineers, which also has a built-in warning system when changing lanes between rows, as well as a system of directional stability.
