GREENSBORO, N.C. — Together, Volvo and Mack have now received more than 10,000 orders for Class 8 trucks with EPA2010-compliant emissions using selective catalytic reduction (SCR), the companies announced.
The trucks boast “near-zero” emissions and fuel economy improvements of up to 5%, the companies claim.
“Passing the 10,000 mark in Class 8 orders is a testament to how well we’ve executed our EPA2010 project,” said Ron Huibers, Volvo’s senior vice-president, sales and marketing. “The reports we’re getting from customers, particularly when it comes to performance, reliability, and fuel efficiency, have been extremely positive – and they’re the cleanest trucks in the world, to boot.”
“This milestone is in line with the fact that we were the first to achieve EPA2010 certification, we had the trucks in customer hands early and often for testing, and we were ready to go soon enough to start production last fall,” added Kevin Flaherty, senior vice-president, sales and marketing with Mack. “Customers are telling us we have the best EPA2010 solution, bar none.”
