Using driving techniques that improve fuel consumption also results in vehicles having less impact on the environment as well as potentially reducing operating costs in terms of unscheduled maintenance and repairs. That uptime can be optimised and even improved by using driving techniques that deliver improved fuel economy is an established fact.
Volvo Trucks relentless focus on reducing emissions of carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides and particulates from our diesel engines is incontrovertibly good for our customers, their customers and the drivers of our vehicles. Over the next 10 years we aim to reduce fuel consumption by another 10 percent. This will be achieved by making small but significant improvements to driveline efficiency and also occasionally with something completely new, like our methane-diesel technology or perhaps DME. We'll carry on working away like this for as long as it takes to achieve sustainable levels of emissions, carbon neutral transport and independence from fossil fuels.
Even then, every drop will count.
