Volvo Trucks is at it again! In the line of outrageous Live Test Series promo videos which included Van Damme’s “The Epic Split“, the Swedish CV giant has added yet another mind blowing video. Titled “Look Who’s Driving”, the 8th video of the series involves a 4-year old girl named Sophie, a remote controlled Volvo FMX mining truck and a construction site full of hazardous obstacles.
As you guessed correctly, the combination is an excellent recipe for mayhem and destruction. The objective of this out-of-the-box test with an unusual driver is to demonstrate the robustness of the mining truck and the modern technologies which make it feel at home when the going gets tough.
Positioned at a vantage point far from the ground zero, Sophie put the remote controlled truck through a series of challenging maneuvers like driving through a concrete wall, climbing a steep, soft incline and a 360-degree roll! Admirably, even after the roll, the FMX continued to push on undeterred.
Speaking about the test, Ricard Fritz, Vice President of Volvo Trucks said:
To show what the truck can do, we wanted to give it a real challenge. What test driver is more reckless than an unpredictable four-year-old?
The test demonstrates the effectiveness of the vehicle’s automatic traction control system with on-demand all-wheel drive system, impact resistant front bumper, skid plate, ground clearance, strong cabin and waterproof under body. We expect more such epic videos to come from Volvo Trucks down the line.
