Volvo Trucks Asia-Pacific Fuelwatch Challenge 2015

Volvo Trucks, a global leader in sustainable transport solutions, saw a record-setting Volvo Trucks Asia-Pacific Fuelwatch Challenge 2015. Following an inspiring performance in the Thai city of Hua Hin, Louise Marriott from New Zealand was announced the most fuel-efficient driver in the on-road category. Marriott became the first female driver in the competition´s illustrious history to achieve a podium finish, joining Ravi Poleboina from India who was awarded the most fuel-efficient driver in the off-road segment. In addition to being the first female driver, Marriott was also the first representative from New Zealand to attain this top prize. She clocked 17.5 per cent less fuel compared to the highest amount of fuel burnt at the event. Poleboina recorded an achievement of 12.5 per cent less fuel consumption relative to fellow contestants. Marriott said, ¨I´m absolutely pleased to be this year´s most fuel-efficient driver and to be the first contestant to bring the trophy home to New Zealand. While our industry is often thought of as being male dominated, the Fuelwatch Challenge has been a great platform for us to show that all drivers, regardless of gender, can perform at the highest level while being fuel-efficient. I look forward to sharing the experience at Fuelwatch with my colleagues back home.¨
