Driver's fuel challenge
The global final of the 2016 edition of The Drivers’ Fuel Challenge took place the 9th of September in Gothenburg, Sweden. Tomáš Horčička from the Czech Republic brought home the title.
Fuel-efficiency is one of the most important factors for both the environment and a company’s economy. Volvo Trucks is proud of building trucks that have extremely low fuel consumption, but it’s just as important to have fuel-efficient drivers as fuel–efficient trucks.
To stimulate fuel-efficient driving and to reward especially skilled drivers, Volvo Trucks is hosting The Drivers’ Fuel Challenge – a global competition for drivers of all brands. It’s about driving as economically as possible on a specified route.
The best drivers from each market were invited to the World Final in Volvo’s hometown Gothenburg to compete for the prestigious title – “The most fuel efficient driver in the world”. Besides honour and glory, the winner received an exclusive travel experience.
