The Vehicle Technologies Office has released "Adoption of New Fuel-Efficient Technologies from SuperTruck," a report on the industry's adoption rates of new fuel efficient technologies from the SuperTruck program into its manufacturing lines. This is a fact sheet summarizing the results of the report.
A number of SuperTruck technologies are already making market inroads, particularly in the areas of aerodynamics and engine/drivetrain integration. These appeal to current fleet buyers because they are cost effective and are proving to be reliable in service. Other SuperTruck technologies offer the promise of additional fuel savings within the next five or ten years when they are expected to be commercially available, particularly in the areas of more advanced aerodynamics packages and further increases in engine thermal efficiency.
