Gas power

The Volvo FE CNG offers a low emissions alternative to diesel. It has a 320 hp output and it’s powered exclusively by compressed natural gas or compressed biogas. Operating on biogas means a 100% eduction of the tank to wheel CO₂ emissions. The automatic transmission makes the truck easy to drive.

The D8K diesel engines offer fast response, high torque at low revs and it’s available in four output levels from 250 to 350 hp and up to 1400 Nm of torque. The engines are energy efficient and operate on renewable fuels – certified for synthetic diesel (HVO) and biodiesel (RME).

Exhaust aftertreatment

The diesel engines use Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) technology to comply with Euro 6 regulations. We added a water-cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system to the engine and a diesel particulate filter (DPF) which regenerates automatically.
