 EPA’10 Production Status
  We have been assembling our EPA’10 test engines on the
   Hagerstown MD production line, not in the engineering lab, for over a

  We have assembled all test trucks at our Dublin VA assembly facility
   and are now assembling with production-level parts stocked on line.

  We have almost 100 Volvo ‘p-start’ trucks on order for build in
   calendar 2009 with EPA’10 emission control. These trucks will help
   us maximize quality in 2010.

 DEF Availability

New Gilbarco DEF Dispenser   All Volvos will fill on the driver’s
with heated DEF tank and     side. Volvo will utilize the magnetic
nozzle storage               interlock device in the DEF fill that
                             will help prevent misfiling.
