Fuel is everything. And because every drop counts, we’ve pioneered world-leading technologies, developed innovative services and devised fuel saving strategies that make a big difference to your bottom line.
Volvo Torque Assist is a new software program included in the upgraded engines, designed to help the driver to operate their vehicle more fuel-efficiently when not using cruise control. The result is that any driver is able to achieve a high level of fuel-efficient driving regardless of their experience and expertise.
In addition, a number of hardware upgrades have also been implemented, to cut fuel consumption even further.
Our engine range has been meticulously engineered to save fuel without compromising performance. We optimised the combustion chamber geometry. Designed vertical, centrally positioned unit injectors. Increased the gas-fill ratio…
We could go on (and on) about our technical achievements. What’s most important about these innovations is the difference they make to your bottom line. And to the environment.
You need a driven front axle. But our research shows you only need it 2–5% of the time. At all other times, you’re wasting fuel. Automatic Traction Control helps you maximise fuel efficiency. When you don’t need the extra traction, the system automatically disengages the front axle, reducing the amount of fuel you use.
I-Shift maximises performance and efficiency by monitoring and responding to vehicle mass, road inclination, speed and acceleration. Coupled to a Volvo diesel engine, it reduces fuel consumption by up to 5% compared to a manual gearbox.
I-Shift has also been reinforced and upgraded to match the needs of severe duty applications. It’s now standard on all axle configurations, including trucks with a driven front axle.
Together, Dynafleet and driver training can save you fuel.
Meet our intelligent fleet-management system. Follow the performance of your trucks and drivers in real time, view automatically generated fuel-efficiency rankings. Then make comparisons, spot trends and implement profitable, fuel-saving changes.
Our Efficient Driving course helps you get the most out of every drop of fuel. Part of our Volvo Trucks Driver Development programme, the proven systematic approach creates fuel-efficient driving patterns and sustainable, long-term savings and is most effective in conjunction with Dynafleet reports.
