GREENSBORO, N.C. — Despite choosing different paths to meeting EPA2010 emissions standards, Volvo will continue offering the Cummins ISX in 2010 as well as its own engines.
The company announced an extension to a deal with Cummins this morning. The 15-litre Cummins ISX will be certified to meet 2010 emissions standards without using Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), Cummins officials announced last fall. Volvo, on the other hand, has announced it favours SCR to meet the next round of emissions standards.
“Our customers have indicated a desire to have both the Cummins ISX and the Volvo engine family available in 2010,” said Per Carlsson, president and CEO of Volvo Trucks North America. “Cummins remains a valued partner of Volvo and our customers will continue to benefit from our comprehensive engine lineup of Volvo’s 11-, 13-, and 16-litre engines, plus the 15-litre ISX.”
