2025 Volvo VNL Concept
The 2025 Volvo VNL Concept is a futuristic semi-truck design that aims to enhance the lifestyles of truck drivers on the road. The interior design of the VNL allows for more free space when resting and less space when driving to decrease distractions. The VNL family includes the flagship model, the high-roof VNL 860, which builds on Volvo’s foundation of fuel efficiency, driver productivity, safety, and uptime. The upgraded 77-inch sleeper has plenty of space, storage, and amenities to let team drivers feel at home, away from home. The VNL 760 is Volvo’s best-selling truck.
Volvo Trucks is emerging as a commercial electric truck deployment leader, aiming for 50% of its trucks to be electric by 2030. Earlier this year, the company unveiled its second-generation VNR Electric trucks with bigger batteries, added range, and new configurations. The logistic giant Maersk has ordered 110 Volvo VNR Electric trucks with an operating range of up to 440 km (275 miles) and energy storage of up to 565kWh. The trucks can be 80% charged in 90 minutes with the six-battery package and 60 minutes with the four-battery configuration. The electric fleet will be used in California, where the state offers significant incentives to deploy electric trucks.
Regarding reliability, Peterbilt is known as one of the most reliable semi-truck brands. Owner-operators who drive long-haul are drawn to Peterbilt trucks because they focus on fuel economy, safety, and reliability. However, Volvo trucks are also considered one of the top international brands, with the same parent company that makes Mack trucks also driving Volvo trucks. Drivers can be sure they are getting a high-quality and dependable truck when buying a Volvo, and the parent company also has excellent driver support.
A Volvo vehicle can last over 200,000 miles if given proper care each year. The “L” in VNL signifies a long bonnet, compared to the medium-bonneted VNM and the regional VNR. Other parts of the model name (for example, VNL64T760) include the number of wheels and wheels driven (“64”), followed by a “T” for the tractor, followed by a three-digit code for the cab style.
