Volvo Hybrid Truck – Volvo hybrid truck called Mean Green just broke the world record for the fastest truck, Wendover Airfield in Utah. By leveraging the powerful D16 engine 1900 horsepower electric motor and powerful 200-horsepower, combined reach 5000 lb-ft of torque. Mean Green is able to penetrate an average speed of 147.002 mph or 236.577 km / h.

To support the performance of the car, truck tire Mean It uses Goodyear products. The result, Goodyear tires are able to withstand the pressure and velocity are very large trucks.

Goodyear worked with Volvo on the Mean Green this development project. Marathon Long Haul Drive Tire size 495/45R22.5 able to withstand large torque and high speed.

“Mean Green get the performance and remarkable speed. Mean Green underlines the great potential of a hybrid engine in the truck,” said President of Volvo Trucks North America Ron Johan.

Today many manufacturers competing to make environmentally friendly cars as well as powerful. Many tried and electrical machinery machines widely regarded as the kitchen spur future. But for Volvo, there is a more promising effort that is, the wind!

Volvo in carpet Los Angeles Auto Show tried to compete in a contest to design a concept car called the Volvo Water Motion. As the name implies, Volvo Air Motion relies on wind as a fuel booster. The wind changed Volvo Air Motion in a storage tank.

The air is able to provide enough energy to make the Volvo sped Air Motion. Torque of 1,000 lb-ft also appeared to be generated from fuel that does not have to buy this.

Wind in the storage tank is converted into electricity through a turbine evolutionary. Thus, in addition to powerful, this car was certainly also friendly to the environment because it only produces very little emissions.

With that ability, Volvo Air Motion was believed to be a real picture of a racing car of the future.

In addition, Volvo Air Motion also has ultra-lightweight body with the application of carbon fiber body. The materials applied in the chassis, suspension and interior was changed from heavy materials to lightweight materials.

That way, the body weight of the Swedish car is just 453 kg or lighter than a Formula One car racing.
