Volvo XE package

Two transmissions in one: the performance of a direct drive when loaded, and a downspeeding overdrive when unloaded. This is the first drivetrain in the industry to use rear axle load to change the driveline based on the vehicle's load. For every 100 rpm of downspeeding, fuel efficiency is improved by around 1.5%.

Turbo Compound

With Volvo’s D13 engine with Turbo Compound, brings even more out of the fuel. The system utilizes the energy in the engine’s exhaust gases, and re-use it by bringing it back to the crankshaft. In long-haul applications, this means fuel savings of up to 3% compared to the already efficient D13 engine. And with down-speeding packages, one can save even more.
