Volvo Trucks announced its Proven Tour, an interactive customer and dealer road tour showcasing fuel efficiency, driver productivity, safety and vehicle uptime, on Sept. 14. The Proven Tour will stop at 27 Volvo Trucks dealers throughout the U.S. and Canada during the next four months.
A Volvo VNL 780 tractor will pull the 53-foot expandable Proven trailer. The trailer features interactive stations to allow visitors to learn more about Volvo’s technology, including XE powertrain packages, I-Shift automated manual transmission, steel cab, Volvo Remote Diagnostics and ASIST service communication tool. During the tour, visitors will also experience the premier of Volvo’s iPad-based Fuel Drop game.
This year’s portion of the Proven Tour will conclude in late December after stops throughout the West, Midwest and Canada. Following the holidays, the Proven Tour will continue.
