French term or phrase: polyvolume
I believe this is a kind of truck. Here's the context (the paragraph talks about "custom trucks" for urban delivery.) "on a supprimé les renforts, utilisé de nouveaux matériaux pour le châssis. Résultat, le doublement de la capacité du polyvolume et réduit de 30% la consommation de gas-oil"

Thanks for everyone's help and the web references. The customer actually wanted to go with "polyvolume" so I ended up using that. Now at least I understand what it is!
