Inaugurated in 2012 and dedicated completely to eco-driving, the Optifuel Challenge is a manifestation of Renault Trucks' commitment to supporting drivers in terms of fuel economy and our global vehicle/driver/services approach, combining to reduce fuel consumption sustainably from the first turn of a wheel. 3000 drivers participated in the last event, representing 2300 countries from 29 different countries.
HOW DO I TAKE PART?
Drivers of Renault Trucks T or T High vehicles may take part in the qualifying tests via Ecoscore, one of the functions in Optifleet, the Renault Trucks fleet management software package. You will be assessed on the basis of your results. The Ecoscore tool can be used to assess driving efficiency and correct use of the truck independently, thanks to an algorithm developed on the basis of more than twenty tears of manufacturing experience in economical driving. The system gauges driving efficiency according to three main criteria:
The winner of the international final will drive off with a 2019 Renault Trucks T High truck.
The driver stepping onto the top step of the podium will have the privilege of representing their country in the international final, which will take place in October 2019. The title winner will drive off with a 2019 Renault Trucks T High.
Renault Trucks T High for 2019 has a fuel consumption reduced by up to 3% in comparison with the previous generation. Linked to theOptifuel Challenge, it showcases the French manufacturer's focus: the continued improvement of their vehicles' energy efficiency.
