Volvo Trucks i-Shift Gearbox and 11L Engine Production Starts in Brazil
"The I-Shift gearbox has been getting outstanding acceptance in Brazil and in all the other countries of South America. It already equips about 80% of the FH and FM trucks and over 90% of the highway buses which leave our assembly line in Curitiba", says Volvo do Brasil's president Roger Alm.
"We were pioneers in the Brazilian market, introducing an electronic gearbox in this commercial vehicles segment. It is technically very advanced, but also very easy to use", adds Alm. "Our engines line is very flexible, especially now that we will produce 13 and 11-litre engines."
