Imagine you are starting your brand new job as a parking valet for a huge casino. Imagine some of the best cars you have ever seen start pulling up. You take the keys, you drive of the cars away and you wait for the next super car to arrive.
Until a HUGE Volvo lorry arrives, what do you do now? do you drive it away? Have you ever driven a lorry before? Luckily for the new valet it was all part of a an elaborate setup.
The film is part of the launch of Volvo Trucks’ new world-first gearbox, the I-Shift Dual Clutch. The technology is similar to that already found in sports cars, but Volvo Trucks is the first manufacturer in the world to develop this type of gearbox for series-produced heavy vehicles.
I-Shift Dual Clutch was launched in Europe in June 2014 and will be available from September 2014 on all markets selling the Volvo FH with Euro 6 D13 engines producing 460, 500 or 540 horsepower.
