Volvo
In October 12,124 Volvo trucks were delivered, an increase of 21% compared with the same month last year.

In Europe 5,552 vehicles were delivered during October, up by 28% compared with October 2012. An extensive product renewal is under way with five new truck models; Volvo FH, Volvo FM, Volvo FMX, Volvo FE and Volvo FL.

First quarter production rates in Europe will be adjusted to reflect lower demand, which is a consequence of customers having pre-bought trucks ahead of a more stringent emission regulation coming into force 1 January 2014.

October deliveries in North America increased 34% to 2,880 vehicles in comparison with the same period last year.

October deliveries in South America increased 7% to 1,921 trucks compared with October 2012.

Renault Trucks
In October 4,797 trucks were delivered by Renault Trucks which was a decrease by 12% compared to a year ago. In Eastern Europe, deliveries were down by 30%

In June, Renault Trucks launched a completely new truck program, with four different truck series; the T-series for long haulage, the C-series for construction, the K-series for heavy construction and the D-series for distribution.

Renault Trucks’ new ranges have had a positive reception from both customers and dealers. However, production of the new trucks has just started and demonstration trucks are currently being delivered to customers, who will test their performance over a period of time before placing further orders.

Consequently, overall order intake for Renault is currently low as no more orders are taken for Europe on the old generation and order intake is yet to pick-up on the new generation of trucks. Production rates for the first quarter will be adjusted to reflect lower demand.
