Environmental driveline

Guiding you to optimised fuel consumption
Reducing fuel consumption is a must when it comes to economy of a company. But even more so when it comes to environmental issues. At Volvo we believe in the benefits of cleaner technology. It is a mission we take seriously. Just to give you one example: between 1980 and 2001, engine efficiency and the normal fuel consumption, using diesel engines, has decreased by about 30%.

However, besides vehicle and engine design the fuel consumption for goods vehicle transport is dependent on a number of factors, such as load factor, the driver, the equipment and weather conditions.

Volvo has a long experience of engine technology to reduce emissions and fulfil all main legislations from Europe, USA and Japan.

SCR technology
At Volvo Trucks we believe that Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology is the best alternative for complying with the Euro 4 and Euro 5 emission legislations. SCR is a well-proven and reliable technology without limitations in horsepower output and does not affect the cooling or oil systems.

SCR also represents the most fuel-efficient solution among the techniques available for Euro 4 and Euro 5. But if EGR is needed, that alternative can be supplied as well.
