The fuel-efficient Volvo Diesel engines

Built-in fuel efficiency

The optimised combustion chamber geometry. The fast and precise EMS-controlled injection. The high gas-fill ratio. We could go on listing what makes our engines so fuel-efficient. What’s more important is the difference they make to you bottom line. And to the environment.

The patented engine brake VEB and VEB+ from Volvo

Volvo Engine Brake: VEB and VEB+

Our patented engine brake, VEB and VEB+, uses a unique camshaft design to absorb up to 300 kW (402 hp) or 375 kW (502 hp) respectively on the D13. Coupled with our transmission system, steep and tricky descents are much safer and more fuel-efficient.
