Malcolm Group expects strong Euro-6 performance from new Volvo FMs

  • 30 January 2014
  • By Christopher Walton

Scottish haulage giant Malcolm Group has said it expects the Euro-6 Volvo FM to “at least equal, if not exceed” the fuel economy performance of the Euro-5 FMs currently running on its 475 vehicle strong fleet.

The Linwood, Renfrewshire-based haulier has taken delivery of its first Euro-6 Volvo FM, and placed an order for 30 more.

It said it is basing its decision on the performance of its existing Euro-5 FM units. Back in May Malcolm Group took delivery of 40 Euro-5 Volvo FM11s, following a fuel trial in which it achieved over 9mpg.

Chief executive Andrew Malcolm said: “I am confident in Volvo’s approach to Euro-6 and I expect the newcomers to at least equal, if not exceed the performance of our current FM trucks.”

All the trucks have been, or will be, supplied by Volvo Truck and Bus Centre North Scotland.

Malcolm Group has also been trialling a new Volvo FH tractor unit fitted with a Euro-6, D13C engine.
