Double trailer combination on test in Spain

By

For some countries, a long and heavy vehicle combination of 25,25 metres causes a lot of discussion, but in Spain car maker Seat has a go on a double trailer combination which commutes between Zaragoza and Martorell.

In the upcoming months, Seat is allowed to test the doble trailer combination. It is 32 metres long and it has a carrying capacity of 70 tonnes. Two regular 13,60 metre trailers are coupled by a two axle dolly. All is being pulled by a Scania V8, also part of the VW Group these days.

Seat expects to reduce CO2 output with this juggernaut by 20%, a similar reduction of fuel consumption is expected, compared to two normal combinations. Seat intends to reduce the number of trucks on the road while at the same time improving efficiency.
