GREENSBORO, N.C. — For the first time an official price has been attached to EPA2010-compliant trucks with selective catalytic reduction (SCR).
Volvo Trucks North America has announced it will be adding a US$9,600 emissions surcharge to heavy-duty trucks, beginning Jan. 1, 2010.
“Our emissions reduction technology for 2010 will bring immediate benefits for the air we breathe without using emissions credits, while at the same time significantly improving fuel economy for our customers,” said Scott Kress, senior vice-president, sales and marketing. “Volvo Trucks will achieve near-zero emissions of NOx with selective catalytic reduction (SCR). We have made substantial investments in research and development to accomplish these extraordinary goals.”
The surcharge will apply to all heavy-duty Volvo trucks, which will be available with Volvo’s D11, D13 and D16 engines as well as the Cummins ISX.
