I-Shift – simple, dependable and very fuel efficient

I-Shift maximises performance and efficiency by monitoring and responding to vehicle mass, road inclination, speed and acceleration. Coupled to a Volvo diesel engine, it reduces fuel consumption by up to 5% compared to a manual gearbox.

I-Shift has also been reinforced and upgraded to match the needs of severe duty applications. It’s now standard on all axle configurations, including trucks with a driven front axle.
