Protecting the climate, driving efficiently Every year, VerkehrsRundschau presents the Green Truck Award to the most environmentally friendly tractor truck from the previous test year. 13 vehicles are in the running, and it‘s a close race.

This is the biggest field of Green Truck contestants ever. The VerkehrsRundschau annual environmental award honours the most environmentally friendly 4×2 rig from the previous year‘s vehicle tests. All seven major truck manufacturers opted to take part in the contest, with some even submitting multiple vehicles. The benchmark, as ever, is our own Mercedes-Benz Actros 1845,  including a fully laden curtainsider from Schmitz Cargobull. As a reference vehicle, it accompanies every trip on our 353-kilometre standardised test route – a distance that allows all the different weather conditions encountered to be taken into account.
