Volvo claims new FH with I-Save cuts fuel costs by up to 7%

May 18, 2019
In a bid to provide improved fuel efficiency to its customers, Volvo Trucks has introduced the Volvo FH with I-Save.

Volvo claims that by combining its new D13TC engine with updated fuel-saving features, customers can cut fuel costs by up to 7% in long-haul operations – without compromising drivability.

Volvo says demand for transportation across Europe is growing and trucks are covering increasingly longer distances. At the same time, transport operators are faced with rising diesel prices putting pressure on profitability.

Roger Alm, President of Volvo Trucks said, “Volvo FH with I-Save is our answer to this challenge. It is a complete solution that combines our latest technology to substantially bring down fuel consumption in long-haul operations.”

At the core of the new FH with I-Save is the state-of-the-art D13TC – Volvo Trucks’ most fuel-efficient long-haul engine to date. It features pistons with a patented wave-shaped interior that improves combustion and increases efficiency by guiding heat and energy to the centre of the cylinders. Excess energy in the exhaust gases is then used to power the engine through an additional turbine in the exhaust flow, called the Turbo Compound unit.

Mats Franzén, Powertrain Strategy Director at Volvo Trucks said, “We have tailored every aspect of I-Save to suit long-haul operators, especially those that typically drive more than 120,000 km per year. The longer they drive, the more they can potentially save. It is a powerful engine which delivers a highly fuel efficient and smooth driving experience.”

The D13TC engine produces up to 300 Nm extra torque, which means less acceleration and fuel is needed to keep a steady speed in motorway traffic. According to Volvo it is the ideal solution for long-haul customers.
