2010 – SCR Catalytic Emissions Reduction
In 2010, Volvo Penta presents an extensive range of offroad diesel engines compliant with the upcoming 2011 emissions standards. The range uses SCR-technology combining increased power with fuel consumption improved by 5-10% compared to today’s engines. SCR converts exhaust NOx into nitrogen gas and water vapor, before releasing them harmlessly through a catalytic converter. The system does this by automatically adding up to 5% AdBlue® to the exhaust gases and then passing the mixture through a catalytic converter.
2013 – Glass cockpit system
Introduction of Volvo Penta’s unique Glass Cockpit System, an all-integrated control and monitoring system that provides fingertip access to all driver information on high-tech displays. Everything handy on a single interface: IPS (Inboard Performance System), warnings, alarms, engine data, navigation, Electronic Vessel Control, Dynamic Positioning System, etc.
2015 – Forward drive
The 2015 Miami International Boat Show showcased the launch of the innovative Volvo Penta Forward Drive (FWD) system, featuring forward-facing counter-rotating props. Mounted at the stern, the all-new propulsion system pulls the boat through the water rather than pushing, which ensures superior fuel economy, performance and maneuverability as well as safer wakesurfing and wake boarding.
2016 – E-key remote
With the e-Key Remote, a feature of Volvo Penta’s Battery Management Solution, unlocking and starting a boat is now a lot like starting a car. The boat’s whole driveline can be controlled with just one key, which can be used remotely.
