SuperTruck by STARK
STARK’s latest production for Volvo Trucks North America is the SuperTruck. This is the story of the five-year development of a Volvo Truck concept vehicle that is 3000 pounds lighter, features 40% less drag and 70% better fuel efficiency.
The SuperTruck program is a U.S. Department of Energy research and development initiative to improve freight efficiency of heavy duty trucks by 50 percent compared to 2009 base model trucks.
As Volvo unveiled its SuperTruck I concept vehicle, the design team rolled straight into the next phase of the project. The Department of Energy has awarded the company $20 M USD in federal funding to improve freight efficiency even more in the SuperTruck II program.
