DSV testing Mercedes-Benz hybrid electric-HVO trucks

March 27, 2017 |

In Sweden, DSV Sweden is currently testing a unique Atego Hybrid truck from Mercedes-Benz in Malmo city distribution. The truck runs on both electricity and the new biofuel HVO 100.

After a six-month test period in Malmo city traffic, the project will be evaluated. The results will help determine if electric hybrids can become long-term solutions to distribution in metropolitan areas, which are especially vulnerable to air pollution.

“Mercedes Atego Hybrid is our latest investment in environmentally certified vehicles as part of our long-term efforts to reduce environmental impact. We definitely see the benefits of having a new type of distribution vehicle in urban traffic, as the combination of HVO and electricity produces significantly lower emissions levels of carbon dioxide. It will be interesting to see how it works to drive a hybrid in the urban environment and the environmental benefits it provides,” says Staffan Klinterhäll, Business area manager.
