The Green Truck Award

The environmental ranking is determined by the German trade magazines Trucker and Verkehrsrundschau.

How is the Green truck Award determined?

We explain what is being tested at the Green Truck and how the winner is determined.

The Award

“The environmental label Green Truck is a point of reference for fleet managers in industry, trade and logistics as well as truck drivers in terms of the purchase and use of environmentally friendly commercial vehicles.”

Gerhard Grünig

editor in chief of the magazines Verkehrsrundschau and Trucker

Sustainable for the environment

For the rating of the environmental friendliness the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of the vehicles are compared. The CO2 emissions are indicated as carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). At the same time the environmental ranking takes into consideration well-to-wheel like it is regulated in the DIN EN 16258 regulation.

Highest number of participants in 2019

The number of participants has never been higher. The environmental award  yearly recognizes the most environmental friendly 4x2 tractor unit of the previous year. All seven big truck manufacturers participated in the comparison, some with several vehicles.

heavy test-trailer

A reference vehicle accompanies every ride at a 353 kilometers long, standardized test-route to compensate for weather conditions. The transport task is the same for all: every vehicle is equipped with a 24 tons heavy test-trailer. This is how the total weight of roughly 32 tons is created.

 

German trade magazines award Scania

The trade magazines VerkehrsRundschau and Trucker annually award the most environmentally-friendly truck with the Green Truck Award. A total of 13 trucks competed for the title but the Scania R 450 Highline was invincible.
