Environmental care has been one of our core values since the 1970s. In India, even when there were no local emission requirements, Volvo products were introduced meeting global emission standard.
At Volvo Group in India, we understand that it is not only the engines and vehicle performance but also the transport concept that has a significant bearing on the environmental performance of our products and solutions. That is why Volvo Group’s solutions typically bring in the capacity to ‘do more with less’, through solutions such as - tippers, tip-trailers, bus-based public transport systems, articulated vehicles, high performing excavators and many more. Using ‘fewer vehicles for the same job’ we help in reducing the environmental impact.
Driving a heavy vehicle requires skills, of which, the ability to be fuel efficient is a highly valuable skill that can save up to 10% of the fuel. Even before the first vehicle was sold in India, Volvo commenced its driver training to train good drivers to be even better. As of today, India has crossed the milestone of training over 100,000 truck and bus drivers at the Volvo Driver Training Centre in Hosakote, near Bangalore.
