HAGERSTOWN, Md. — Volvo Trucks North America hosted about 150 customers and dealers at a “Volvo Power Summit” at its powertrain plant here April 7, to demonstrate its EPA2010 technology.
The company pointed out it invested US$150 million into its new engine program and said the D11, D13 and D16 engines will deliver 5% better fuel economy than EPA07 models.
“We wanted our customers to come away from this event fully confident that Volvo Trucks’ EPA2010 technology will get the job done better than any other option they could choose,” said Ron Huibers, senior vice president, sales and marketing.
Huibers pointed out Volvo has been building EPA2010 technology trucks for nearly six months already.
“We have hundreds in daily operation with customers – customers who are reaping the benefits of Volvo’s proven selective catalytic reduction emissions control and our industry-leading engine technology through fuel savings, improved performance, excellent reliability and our integrated powertrain strategy,” he said. “And like our trucks, these Volvo engines are assembled here in the United States.”
