Famco introduces Euro 5 emission standard Volvo Trucks in the UAE
Al-Futtaim Auto & Machinery Company (Famco), exclusive distributor of Volvo Trucks in the UAE, recently announced the launch of the Volvo Trucks that meets Euro 5 emission standards.
The introduction of the new Euro 5 engines supports the UAE Government’s Vision 2021 to provide a safer environment and to work towards providing a sustainable future.
As part of the Government’s efforts, Emirates Authority For Standardization and Metrology (ESMA) recently mandated that all trucks imported starting this year must meet Euro 4 emission standards. Famco and Volvo Trucks Middle East have taken a step further and introduced the Euro 5-compliant trucks.
Vladimir Knezevic, Managing Director of Famco UAE, said, “As the whole industry is shifting its focus to decreased fuel consumption and increased fleet efficiency, Volvo Trucks with its advanced safety features and Euro 5 emission standards is in a class of its own. The new trucks in addition to supporting the government’s efforts to lower pollution levels also ensure our customers drive environment-friendly trucks that are more fuel-efficient and provides greater productivity and returns.”
The new Volvo Trucks are equipped with On-Board Diagnostics (OBD), which helps monitor the level of AdBlue liquid that together with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology helps lower emission levels. The OBD also easily provides authorities with information regarding the emission levels of the trucks during inspection.
Alongside the launch of the Euro 5 models, Famco also launched the Globetrotter cab for the Volvo FH. In addition to being more advanced than existing sleeper cabins in its class, the Globetrotter cabs provide a very high level of safety and comfort for drivers and a newer driving experience which directly reciprocates into better productivity.
