30% less fuel, 40% longer range
When it comes to fuel economy, the benefits of Volvo Penta IPS are obvious – an impressive 30% possible reduction in fuel consumption at cruising speed compared to inboard shafts. That translates into longer range by over 40% and of course a huge drop in exhaust emissions.
It may seem like an impossible combination, but while decreasing fuel consumption, performance is also greatly improved. In a matchup against inboard shafts of the same power, the differences are obvious. The boat equipped with Volvo Penta IPS accelerates much faster and has a higher top speed.
