Volvo makes LED lighting standard

Feb. 21, 2014

Volvo Trucks North America has made in-cab LED lighting standard on all interior and exterior lighting on its vehicles. Optional LED headlights are also available for the VNL and VNX models.

Both the LED interior lighting and LED headlamps are available for order. The solid-state LED interior lights and headlamps consume one-eighth the energy required of standard incandescent lighting and are designed for a significantly longer life.

The optional LED headlamps from Truck-Lite Co., LLC, available on the Volvo VNL and VNX, models significantly improve visibility through an expanded beam pattern and light coloring similar to daylight, Volvo said. The headlamps also feature a lens coating to resist hazing and yellowing.

Standard interior LED lighting on Volvo VNM, VNL, VNX, VHD and VAH models provide longer life than standard bulbs while also placing less strain on the truck batteries than incandescent lighting. Red LED reading lamps are also available with the interior combination lamps, providing reading capability at night without sacrificing forward visibility.

“In addition to improved efficiency and visibility compared with incandescent lighting, LEDs are designed to last far longer, so use of LED lighting can help reduce vehicle downtime and potential CSA violations,” said Jason Spence, Volvo Trucks product marketing manager.
