Latest Volvos on show alongside new mystery loader
By Chris Sleight19 September 2012
Volvo promises to take the wraps off a revolutionary machine for the Chinese market, but has at least confirmed it is a wheeled loader that has been specifically tailored to meet customer needs in the region.
Other machines on display will include representatives of the company's latest D-series crawler excavators in the shape of the 38 tonne class EC380D. Also on show will be the award winning A40F articulated dump truck (ADT) and ABG6820 asphalt paver.
Stina Nilimaa Wickstrom, design director at Volvo CE, said of the A40F, "When we started designing this generation of machines we evaluated the strongest elements from the previous series, those which most reflected the company's core values - quality, safety and environmental care. We incorporated the strengths and implemented an updated design identity across the Volvo range which utilises our heritage and further strengthens the Volvo brand."
