New generation of diesel engines
The Volvo Group is introducing a new generation of diesel engines with extremely low emissions of air pollutants. The engines meet the new EuroV regulations that come into effect in the EU in October 2009. Several of the new engines are also available in variants tailored for the EEV norm (Enhanced Environmentally friendly Vehicle).
The new generation of engines is the Volvo Group’s most fuel-efficient and cleanest ever launched in Europe. A number of technical improvements with the focus on optimized combustion and a new SCR catalytic converter have made it possible to combine increased power with decreased emissions and 3% lower fuel consumption.
