Spar Switzerland: cutting emissions with full hybrid truck

Spar Switzerland claims to be reaching a new milestone with the addition of a full hybrid Volvo truck to its fleet.

According to the retailer, the new vehicle will ensure fuel consumption and C02 emissions can be reduced by 20% and noise level by 50%.

At a speed of up to 50km/h the Spar full hybrid truck can be operated purely with an electric motor, emission free.

The new Spar truck can also use its diesel engine and electric engine together or independently.

“Innovation has always been a trademark of our company and we always aim for the systematic reduction of emission and heavy traffic loads,” said Stefan Leuthold, president of the board of Spar Switzerland.

“The new full hybrid truck enables us to achieve this goal.”
