Volvo Trucks, a subsidiary of Volvo AB (NASDAQ: VOLV), is planning to commercialise dimethyl ether powered heavy-duty commercial vehicles in the United States.

The automaker's dimethyl ether will be offered in the Volvo D13 engine, and the company's I-Shift automated manual transmission will be standard on DME-powered trucks.

Goran Nyberg, president of Volvo Trucks North American Sales and Marketing, said, 'With the addition of dimethyl ether-powered vehicles to our previously announced CNG and LNG offering, Volvo's Blue Power line-up will offer the industry's most comprehensive approach to the developing North American alternative fuel market.'
