Fuel efficiency and the joy of driving are often seen as opposites among truck drivers. Simply put, you can’t have both. But with Volvo’s fuel-saving innovations, fun and efficiency can be combined. This is illustrated in the company’s latest animated film, which centers on a love story between two Volvo FH trucks.
The film highlights the product features that make up the fuel-efficient I-Save package, including the turbo compound engine, I-Shift, I-See, I-Torque, and an improved aerodynamic design – demonstrated in a way that you have never seen before.
The I-Save package was introduced to customers in 2019 and has since been a sales success for Volvo Trucks. Its features combined can cumulate in improvements to fuel economy of up to 13%.*
“We are very proud of the I-Save features, and with this love story, we want to give those features the attention they deserve. For our customers, I-Save has come to stand for outstanding fuel economy and great driveability, and the majority of the Volvo FH trucks we sell today are equipped with I-Save,” says Peter Franzén, Product Manager Engines at Volvo Trucks.
The film was shot in Croatia, and all real-life driving was done under safe conditions in a closed-off area.
