The new Volvo FH, Volvo FH16, Volvo FM and Volvo FMX will be commercial heavy-duty trucks to come with Alexa built-in. The integration of Alexa will enable truck drivers to get directions, make phone calls, listen to the news and access entertainment, all with simple voice commands. Volvo trucks with Alexa will be available from March 2021 in Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom.
With Alexa drivers can keep their hands on the steering wheel and their eyes on the road. If the new truck is equipped with the navigation software that is available from Volvo Trucks, then the driver can ask Alexa which route to take. In addition, Alexa can help the driver make phone calls to customers and family members, play music and access the news and audiobooks.
