Volvo even friend­lier

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Front Page -

Volvo has launched a new gen­er­a­tion of low emis­sion en­gines in Europe, mak­ing Volvo trucks 100 times cleaner than they were just 20 years ago. A mea­sure of the progress truck­mak­ers have made in that short time lies in the fuel con­sump­tion. A 40-tonne truck con­sumes five times more fuel than a cur­rent sedan, but it trans­ports 20 times the weight. To fur­ther un­der­line its com­mit­ment to re­duc­ing the im­pact of its trucks on the en­vi­ron­ment Volvo is of­fer­ing en­gines that al­ready meet the Euro­pean EEV (En­hanced En­vi­ron­men­tally friendly Ve­hi­cle), a vol­un­tary frame­work of reg­u­la­tions with even lower emis­sion lev­els than Euro 5.
