Volvo Trucks goes live with ‘The Flying Passenger’30 November 2016

Volvo Trucks’ latest live test is now online to view and features a Volvo FH towing a paraglider up a mountain pass in Croatia.

Called ‘The Flying Passenger’, the film demonstrates the performance of the FH’s powertrain, fitted with I-Shift Dual Clutch, as the driver has to maintain a high cruising speed to keep the paraglider in the air.

The test includes one section where the paraglider has to go under a bridge (pictured).

“This test is the perfect way to challenge our recently updated powertrain,” says Claes Nilsson, president of Volvo Trucks. “The Flying Passenger illustrates in a very concrete and visual way what Volvo Trucks’ performance and driveability is all about.”

The challenge was shot in the Dinaric Alps, in Croatia, on closed-off roads and under strict safety supervision.
