It’s called Sustainable Powertrain Tour the initiative promoted by our platform, Diesel International, and scheduled in 2021. The Sustainable Powertrain Tour will be carried out in three different web events in live streaming, each one addressed to an end sector. We will start in April with the first stage, addressed to the boating sector. In July, we are going to talk about power generation and finally, in October, the closing event will be dealing with the off-highway sector, then agricultural and construction machinery.

Sustainable Powertrain Tour 2021. Institutions, manufacturers and OEMs

The first edition of the Sustainable Powertrain Tour 2021 looks towards the future without neglecting the current requirements of OEMs as well as end users when it comes to choosing a machine or a system. In fact, we believe that these requirements need to be taken into consideration along with the ever-stricter emissions standards featuring nearly all the end sectors.


The introductory speeches will be managed by primary European and international institutions and associations. Then, we will make powertrain component manufacturers and OEMs talk to each other within a round table about hot issues such as cleaner diesel engines, hybridization, electrification and research on alternative (and much less polluting) fuels for internal combustion engines.

What is the true meaning of sustainability?

In other words, it’s time to talk about all this involving primary international institutions together with some of the main global players among the manufacturers of engines and powertrain components.

We are part of a consistent network

The Sustainable Powertrain Tour 2021 was created in the wake of a huge commitment for the promotion of sustainability carried out by Vado e Torno, our publishing house. It is no coincidence that Vado e Torno, through the various magazines published, has established during the years some well-known international awards. From the Sustainable Bus of the Year, addressed to the bus field, to the Sustainable Truck of the Year, up to the Sustainable Tractor of the Year, assigned yearly to the most innovative and game-changing industrial solutions.
