The Scania Super-based powertrain has taken out the “Green Truck” title for 2022.

It marks the sixth year in a row a Scania has taken out the title.

The Green Truck test is organised by trade magazines Trucker and VerkehrsRundschau. The purpose is to identify the most efficient heavy truck by using a formula that takes both the fuel consumption and the average speed into consideration.

All the manufacturers of heavy trucks in Europe are invited to the prestigious comparison test that aims to identify the most fuel-efficient long-haul truck.

Scania’s new Super engine, a 13-litre inline six, was introduced in November 2021 and is available in four power outputs for Euro-6. It took part in this year’s Green Truck test, which is held in Germany on public roads. The same 340km route is used every year, with different conditions on the different legs. This time, 4×2 semitrailer-combinations with 373kW (500hp) and a total weight of 32 tonnes was stipulated.

The testing is rigorously monitored. Factors that influence the results (such as outdoor temperatures and headwinds) are compensated for by the use of a reference truck with well-documented performance, which takes each test in parallel with the competitors.

“I am extremely pleased that a Scania is ranked as the most transport-efficient truck for the sixth time in a row,” said senior vice president and head of Scania Trucks Stefan Dorski. says.

“Our Super-based powertrain has brought a completely new performance level to the market, with our customers now benefiting from its 8% fuel savings.

“Winning Green Truck is a testament to our achievements and a hallmark for the value that Scania offers,” he said.

“These tractors have the same specifications and fuel-saving features that we deliver to our customers, which make them the real winners here.”
