Peter Voorhoeve is serious about trucking sustainability. And the Volvo Trucks North America president doesn’t mean sustainability that happens tomorrow or the day after. For Volvo Trucks and fleets across the country, it means now. Right now. While Volvo Trucks has seen early success with the adoption of its VNR Electric–Voorhoeve knows that decarbonization efforts span all of the offered truck powertrains. And yes, even diesel. Fuel efficiency equals decarbonization because with the latest diesel powertrain you burn less fuel than you did with an older model. Diesel development will continue in the short term as zero-emission powertrains become more approachable and profitable.
