GREENSBORO, N.C. — Penske Truck Leasing has ordered 600 Volvo VNs with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology, the truck maker has announced.
The VN670 tractors with Volvo D13 engines will deliver at least 5% better fuel economy than previous models, Volvo claims.
The first 100 of the trucks have already been built and are being deployed into Penske’s commercial truck rental fleet. The remaining 500 will be produced and delivered in the coming months.
“We are extremely happy that Penske chose Volvo trucks and engines to meet the EPA2010 emissions standard, while also delivering the performance and fuel economy Penske and its customers require,” said Scott Kress, vice-president of sales for Volvo. “Volvo’s engines and SCR system are the most tested products in our company’s history and are the right choice for EPA10. Penske not only has a deserved reputation as one of the leaders in evaluating new technology, they are committed to running the cleanest and most efficient trucks available.”
