Volvo unveils new FM car transporter

Volvo has unveiled its new FM car transporter, configured as a low height, 6x2 rigid with a sleeper cab.

Developed in partnership with trailer manufacturers Transporter Engineering and Belle Rolfo, the Euro-6 FM car transporter is available either with a D11K or a D13K engine with nominal power ratings ranging from 330hp to 500hp.

Volvo has also improved chassis space packaging, increasing maximum fuel capacity from 450 litres to a potential 540 litres compared with the Euro-5 version. AdBlue capacity has increased to 64 litres from 60 litres.

Volvo Trucks’ field sales engineer Duncan Seaman said: “The new Euro-6 FM is highly suitable for car transporter applications because of its compact cab, low chassis height, high front axle capacity of 9 tonnes, its additional 4.5-tonne axle, plus its 3,900mm wheelbase and new chassis space packaging, which allows room for good fuel and AdBlue capacity, in line with the larger Euro-6 exhaust.”

GVW remains the same as the Euro-5 version at 21,450kg.
