Abstract [en]

The transport sector is facing a major challenge to reduce energy consumption and limit environmental impact; therefore, there is a great interest in increasing the efficiency of the transport system in Sweden, which makes the High Capacity Vehicles (HCVs) an attractive solution. In order to introduce HCVs in Sweden, the existing regulations should be modified; one approach is to use performance based standards (PBS) as in e.g. Australia and Canada. However, it is very important that the winter road conditions in Sweden is considered and a PBS system suitable for Swedish condition is developed. In this paper performance of a selection of HCVs are compared for both summer and winter condition, which shows a strong correlation between the two.
