THE VOLVO VNM ALTERNATIVE FUELS SERIES

Natural gas-powered Volvo VNM 200 and VNL 300 models are ideal for local and regional haul fleets concerned about CO2 emissions. The factory-built Volvo VNM Natural Gas Series models feature Cummins Westport ISL G and ISX12 G compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) powered engines.
