Guiding you to optimised fuel consumption
Reducing fuel consumption is a must when it comes to the 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.
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.
At Volvo Trucks we believe that Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology is the best alternative for complying with the 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.
Thanks to this technology, many of Volvo’s engines can be ordered in EEV certified versions (Enhanced environmentally friendly vehicle), with even lower emissions of particulates and soot than Euro 5.
SCR also represents the most fuel-efficient solution among the techniques available for Euro 5.
