Volvo Trucks North America debuted new LED headlights for Volvo VHD series vocational trucks at World of Concrete 2018. The new LED headlights will be offered as standard equipment on the VHD 300 daycab and VHD 400 regional sleeper models to help reduce eye strain, increase visibility and improve safety on roads and jobsites. The new headlights also provide an estimated 10,000 operating hours, ten times greater than previous incandescent headlights.

 "Our decision to make the new Volvo VHD series LED headlights standard was based on our longstanding commitment to safety," said John Felder, Volvo Trucks North America product marketing manager - vocational trucks. "Jobsites and roadways are unpredictable and professional drivers can benefit from improved nighttime visibility."

LED headlights mark the latest enhancement to the VHD series, which recently received a new interior to further enhance driver comfort and productivity, including all-LED interior lighting.
