Volvo Trucks showcasing CNG- and DME-powered daycabs at ACT Expo 2014

1 May 2014

Volvo Trucks will showcase a compressed natural gas (CNG)-powered Volvo VNL daycab and a prototype dimethyl ether (DME)-powered VNL daycab (earlier post) at next week’s Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo, North America’s largest alternative fuel and clean vehicle technology conference. The CNG and DME-powered vehicles are a sampling of Volvo Trucks’ “Blue Power” natural gas strategy for North America.

Volvo currently offers CNG- and liquefied natural gas (LNG)-powered versions of its VNM daycab and VNL sleeper and daycab models powered by spark-ignited gas engines. Volvo continues to work toward commercialization of DME-powered trucks for the North American market.

The fuel mirrors the exceptional performance qualities and energy efficiency of diesel and burns clean without producing any soot. Volvo is also developing a fully integrated natural gas solution, a compression ignition engine that utilizes LNG.
