Today, Volvo Trucks North America announced the company is building a Customer Experience Track at its New River Valley assembly pant in Dublin, Virginia.
The Experience Track is scheduled to open sometime during the 3rd quarter of 2014.
The track will feature a 1.1 mile paved road course and an off-highway area which will allow Volvo to “showcase its entire Class 8 lineup.”
The paved course will feature banked corners, enabling drivers to reach highway speeds. The off-hihgway course will feature a variety of surfaces and grades.
“Customers visit our plant nearly every day to see their trucks being built and experience the passion and care that goes into the vehicles we manufacture,” said Gӧran Nyberg, president of Volvo Trucks North American Sales & Marketing. “Providing a hands-on opportunity is an important extension of that experience, and we believe it will foster an even deeper appreciation of the design, manufacturing and performance of Volvo products.”
