Volvo-Fuelwatch 

 

Volvo Trucks saw a record-setting Volvo Trucks Asia Pacific Fuelwatch Challenge 2015. Following an inspiring performance at the grand final in the Thai city of Hua Hin,  Ravi Poleboina from India  was announced the most fuel-efficient driver in the off-road category.

 

Poleboina clinched the top prize with a notable achievement of 12.5 percent less fuel consumption relative to fellow contestants. Joining him was Ms. Marriott from New Zealand as the first female driver in the competition’s illustrious history to achieve a podium finish at the event in the on road category.

 

The competition, recognised as an annual mainstay event in the industry, embodies the company’s Fuelwatch mission towards a fuel-efficient industry model. During the event, participants attended a one-day training session on fuel-efficient driving techniques and technical expertise, followed by the Asia Pacific Fuelwatch Challenge grand finals on the second day.

 

The Volvo Trucks Fuelwatch Challenge kicked-off its local editions in Asia Pacific earlier this year, and saw 17 top drivers qualify to contest for the title of the region’s most fuel-efficient driver in the on-road and off-road categories at the Asia Pacific Fuelwatch Challenge 2015.

 

Within the industry, fuel can account to up to 50 percent of the operating costs of a typical haulage business. Based on the fuel-efficiency margins recorded in the on-road and off-road finals, this would inarguably translate into significant cost savings potential in a real-world context.
