Sophie drove a Volvo FMX through a construction area – albeit with the help of a remote control
Volvo Trucks’ latest Live Test sees four-year-old Sophie drive an 18t Volvo FMX through a construction area – albeit with the help of a remote control.
The video has already garnered over six million views since being uploaded on December 3.
The objective of the test was to show how the truck can cope in demanding environments, the Swedish manufacturer said.
“To show what the truck can do, we want to give it a real challenge. What test driver is more reckless than an unpredictable four-year-old?” asks Ricard Fritz, Vice President Volvo Trucks Brand.
In the video, Sophie steers the truck on the construction site, across rather unpredicted routes: the truck ends up climbing a steep slope, before rolling all the way down in a full 360-degree roll.
The film is the latest in the Volvo Trucks Live Test series, with previous videos including The Epic Split and The Hamster Stunt.
