Volvo Trucks is conducting an interactive customer and dealer road tour to display its fuel efficiency, driver productivity, safety and uptime attributes of its vehicles. The Proven Tour kicked off last week and will stop at 27 Volvo Trucks dealers throughout the U.S. and Canada in all over the next four months.

A Volvo VNL 780 tractor will pull the 53-ft. expandable Proven trailer, which was built to serve as a mobile experience and educational facility for Volvo dealers and customers. The state-of-the-art trailer features interactive stations to allow visitors to learn more about Volvo’s technology, including XE – exceptional efficiency – powertrain packages, I-Shift automated manual transmission, steel cab, Volvo Remote Diagnostics and ASIST service communication tool.

Volvo dealers and customers can also take part in product presentations and demonstrations in the trailer’s 20-person training room. During the tour, visitors will also experience the premier of Volvo’s iPad-based Fuel Drop game.

“We’re pleased to bring the Proven Tour on the road to our dealers and customers so that they can experience firsthand the breadth of our technology leadership,” said Magnus Koeck, Volvo Trucks vice president, marketing and brand management. “The educational trailer –Volvo’s largest exhibit trailer in the world – provides an in-depth look at our integrated products and services and an opportunity to learn how they help improve the efficiency of our customers’ operations.”
