IAA Hannover 2012: US aero trailer aid heads to UK

  • 18 September 2012
  • By Will Shiers

North American semi-trailer rear-drag specialist ATDynamics is launching a product specifically for the European market, in anticipation of an expected change in vehicle length legislation.

ATDynamics chief executive Andrew Smith is confident that European Directive 97/27/E will be passed in November, meaning it’s TrailerTail Eco50 (which extends by 50cm behind the rear of the trailer and dramatically reduces drag) will become legal.

He said the £800 device, which can be fitted in an hour, will save 7.6 litres of fuel for every 100kms travelled. Savings would be doubled if European legislation was to permit its 122cm Eco120.
