- The Green Truck test aims to find the most efficient heavy truck in Europe
Scania has won the prestigious Green Truck accolade for the sixth year in a row.
This year a new 13-litre Super-based powertrain truck was entered and claimed the overall prize thanks to its outstanding efficiency and fuel performance.
Stefan Dorski, Senior Vice President and Head of Scania Trucks, said: “Winning Green Truck is testament to our achievements and a hallmark for the value that Scania offers. I am extremely pleased that a Scania is ranked as the most transport-efficient truck for the sixth year in a row. Our Super-based powertrain trucks have the same specifications and fuel-saving features that we deliver to our customers, which make them the real winners here. It has brought a completely new performance level to the market, with our customers now benefiting from its 8% fuel savings.”
The Green Truck comparison test is organised by the leading German trade magazines Trucker and VerkehrsRundschau.
They aim to identify the most efficient heavy truck available in Europe by using a formula that considers fuel consumption and average speed. Each truck had to be a 500hp, 4×2 semi-trailer with a total weight of 32 tonnes.
They are then rigorously tested and monitored on the same 340km route on Germany’s highways. The truck is run in parallel alongside a reference vehicle so factors that could influence the results are considered and compensated for.
