The Volvo Trucks North America homepage reports that more than 150 customers and dealers attended the “Volvo Power Summit” at the Volvo Powertrain plant in Hagerstown, Md. on April 7th.

As a result of Volvo’s extensive testing program, and a $150 million investment in engine development, testing and assembly facilities in Hagerstown, the Volvo D11, D13 and D16 engines deliver up to 5% better fuel economy than the previous generation of engine technology, with near-zero emissions. This was accomplished without using emissions credits.

“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 & marketing.

“We’ve shown repeatedly that Volvo is ready. In fact, Volvo has been building production trucks with EPA’10 technology for almost six months now. 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. And like our trucks, these Volvo engines are assembled here in the United States.”
