Continuously reducing emissions
The past 20 years, Volvo Trucks has managed to cut emissions of nitrogen oxides and particulates from new trucks by 75 and 85 percent respectively. But we’re not done yet. The Volvo FE Hybrid is our first parallel hybrid. When in electric mode it can be driven completely emissions-free. And when you take the diesel engine usage into account, carbon dioxide emissions can still be reduced by up to 30 percent.
Carbon dioxide neutral transports
The diesel engine in the Volvo FE Hybrid has the potential to run on renewable biofuel. This makes transport work completely carbon dioxide neutral, which paves the way for sustainable transports.
The sound of silence
When accelerating and idling a Volvo FE Hybrid, noise levels are reduced by up to 50 percent. In electric mode, the Volvo FE Hybrid is almost completely quite. That makes the truck perfect for refuse handling and other city duty purposes, where keeping it disturbance-free is of importance.
The emissions standards for trucks define the acceptable limit for exhaust emissions of new vehicles sold in the EU member states. The standard Euro 5 means that a trucks’ diesel engine can exhaust a maximum of 2.0 grams of nitrogen oxide (NOX) per kWh and 0.02 grams of particulate matter (PM) per kWh. The 7-liter diesel engine in your Volvo FE Hybrid lives up to these standards.
