Volvo taking orders for EPA2010 trucks
Jul 1, 2009 12:00 PM
Customers can place orders now for trucks across Volvo Trucks North America's product line equipped to meet the EPA2010 emissions standards, using Volvo's selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology. SCR also helps Volvo increase the fuel efficiency of its EPA'10 trucks and reduce their carbon footprint.
Initial production is scheduled for fall 2009, with deliveries beginning a few weeks later. These will be initial production trucks, not prototypes or test models.
Orders for approximately 50 Volvo trucks equipped with SCR had been received by mid-June. Customers can order their EPA'10-ready trucks through a Volvo dealer.
Initiating the process so soon also provides Volvo the opportunity to efficiently and effectively ramp up production of EPA'10 trucks on its production line at the New River Valley Plant in Dublin VA before the complete changeover next year. NRV production processes have been modified in recent months in preparation for 2010, and to enhance efficiency and manufacturing quality.
