Large-scale field test.
Using technologies available on the market, the fuel consumption, and therefore the CO₂ emissions, of modern truck combinations can be reduced by a double-digit percentage. This was the finding of a field test, the results of which were presented by Mercedes-Benz Trucks in Berlin. This field test with the project name “Efficiency Run” is of great significance for achieving CO₂ targets for road freight transport. This is because the Efficiency Run has demonstrated that fuel consumption, and therefore also CO₂ emissions, can be significantly reduced – also at lower cost – if optimisation efforts focus not just on the engine of the tractor unit, but on the vehicle as a whole.
