Volvo is one of the world’s leading developers of commercial vehicles. The diesel engine has been the dominant power source and will be for quite some time. However, new technology is entering the stage due to increased demands for emission reductions and energy efficiency.
For several years now Volvo has outdone the competition as regards fuel efficiency, and we constantly work to improve this still further. New engine models with reduced internal friction and improved combustion help our customers save fuel and reduce emissions.
In 2012 we present the new Euro 6 engine range. Diesel engines of 5, 8 and 11 litre displacement constitute the backbone of our future drivelines. And for additional and substantial savings, all our low-floor, single-deck city buses in Europe will be utilising hybrid technology from 2014.
In combination with alternative fuels and hybrid solutions, the potential saving is huge. And with reduced vehicle weight, we are continuously taking steps that really matter: increasing transportation capacity at lower cost and environmental impact.
