Quon Fuel Demonstrator
The Quon Fuel Demonstrator is a laboratory on wheels, dedicated to higher fuel efficiency so that our customers can achieve greater business success through our technology and concepts. Three main areas have been focused on: First, improvement of driveline efficiency is being further pursued by downsizing the 11-litre engine for the Quon CD 25-t cargo to an 8-litre engine with sufficient driveability. Second, aerodynamic parts have been designed based on analysis to reduce wind drag for more fuel-efficient driving. And third, an innovative Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) using GPS and road data to predict upcoming slopes and curves, supports drivers to improve fuel efficiency in their driving.
