The Volvo Trucks Fuelwatch Challenge kicked-off its local/country editions in Asia Pacific earlier this year, and saw 17 top drivers qualify to contest for the title of the region’s most fuel-efficient driver in the on-road and off-road categories at the Asia Pacific Fuelwatch Challenge 2015. This included four women, representing the expanding number of female drivers within the Fuelwatch community and the industry-at-large.
- New Zealand’s Ms. Louise Marriott became the first female driver and New Zealander to be named Asia Pacific’s most fuel-efficient driver
- Mr. Ravi Poleboina from India emerged as this year’s most fuel-efficient driver in the off-road category
- Fuel-efficiency margins clocked by the winners of the on-road and off-road categories would result in significant cost savings in a real-world context
