Scania wins the Green Truck Award

Jun 01, 2018
A Scania R 500 has won this year's ‘Green Truck Award’ by a healthy margin. The German fuel test focusses on lowest fuel consumption. Scania's new truck generation, with its updated 13-litre engine, ensured that Scania took the prize – again.

Scania R 500 wins Green Truck AwardWith an average fuel consumption of 24.92 litre/100 km and an average speed of 79.91 km/h on the same 350 km long test track, the difference between Scania and the next best competitor was a healthy 0.4 litre per every 100 km. Translated into a typical annual mileage for a long-distance truck of 150,000 kilometres, the difference adds up to 600 litres annually.

Over the past three to four years, Scania has received praise in hundreds of press reviews. Scania has also set numerous new fuel records in many European countries in comparison tests carried out by indepen­dent trade journalists.

Wolfgang Buschan, Product Director for Long Haulage, Scania Trucks said, "The Green truck Award is a unique comparison test since it has total focus on what matters most to our customers from a cost and sustainability perspective. The fact that we won the award again this year is extremely flattering."

The Green Truck Award is arranged by two leading German trade magazines, VerkehrsRundschau and Trucker. The participating trucks have a GTW of 40 tonnes and are driven under monitored conditions on public roads between Munich and Nürnberg. The fuel consumption and the average speed are strictly controlled and potential differences in weather and traffic conditions are eliminated. Low fuel consumption not only saves cost, it also corresponds with energy efficiency, reduced CO2 emissions and increased sustainability.
