How many times have you seen a concept vehicle on a stand at a car, bus or truck show and hope that one day we will see something like that on the roads.
Often though these sexy and smart machines never make it either into production, or any form of reality for that matter.
But not this one – the Volvo Trucks Fuel Super Truck is a real B-Double truck, and it’s on Aussie roads already.
Achieving fuel savings up to an enormous 20% – Clive Jones Vice President of Sales at Volvo Trucks Australia, says the good news is the FH16 is more than just a concept vehicle.
“The Volvo Fuel Super Truck is a real-world truck specially engineered for Australian conditions with a fuel efficiency-optimised driveline and streamlined aerodynamics,”
“The good news for owners and operators looking to reduce fuel consumption is that the majority of features in the Volvo Fuel Super Truck are available for ordering now.”
Some of those technologies include the latest drivetrain tech, low rolling resistance tyres, and cutting-edge aerodynamics technology.
While the trailer was designed and engineered in partnership with MaxiTrans.
“We look forward to introducing the Volvo Fuel Super truck to customers around Australia over the coming weeks and months, and to updating the industry on further exciting developments we are making in the fuel efficiency space.”
We’ll bring you more details on the Volvo Trucks Fuel Super Truck as additional info comes to hand.
