Daimler Trucks North America on Tuesday, April 27, announced that it has secured more than 10,000 orders for new vehicles equipped with selective catalytic reduction emissions technology to meet 2010 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency emissions standards.
SCR-equipped trucks reduce emissions to near-zero levels of NOx and particulate matter as measured at the tailpipe while improving fuel economy up to 5 percent compared to EPA 2007 engines. Every new Freightliner Cascadia, Coronado and line of M2 business-class medium-duty vehicles now are available with Detroit Diesel BlueTec or Cummins SCR emissions equipment.
BlueTec SCR is an evolution of SCR technology developed and extensively tested by Daimler, and is Daimler’s solution for meeting the 2010 EPA emissions standards on all Detroit Diesel engines. “Our customers are already benefitting from the technology,” says David Hames, DTNA general manager of marketing and strategy.
