ROAD TO ZERO EMISSIONS AND ZERO ACCIDENTS
The overall theme for Volvo Trucks at IAA Transportation is ‘Towards Zero’ – zero emissions and zero accidents. The manufacturer will showcase its electric truck range including three heavy-duty and two medium-duty truck models available for order in Europe, along with services for electric trucks such as range and route planning, charging solutions and financing. Volvo will also demonstrate other driveline solutions that are enabling haulers to make solid progress on their journey towards zero emissions. In the field of safety, Volvo Trucks will display its new safety system to protect pedestrians and cyclists. The system involves a dual radar on each side of the truck as well as camera supported features.
NEW-GENERATION DAF XD TRUCK
The new-generation DAF XD truck for
distribution and vocational applications is based on the platform of the DAF XF, XG and XG+ long haul trucks. Features of the newgeneration DAF XD include the new Paccar MX-11 driveline; advanced driver assistance systems; large windscreen and large side windows with ultra-low belt lines; low cab position; DAF Corner View and DAF Digital Camera System; and DAF Connect fleet management system. According to DAF, the XD vehicle platform will be able to accommodate all types of drivelines, including alternative powertrains.
QUANTRON ALL-ELECTRIC HEAVY-DUTY TRUCK
The all-electric Quantron QHM BEV 50-392 heavy-duty truck is based on the MAN TG3 (TGS & TGX) and available in 4x2 and 6x2 configurations. The truck provides a range of up to 350 km with a high-voltage 392 kwh battery and can be charged with power outputs of up to 350 kw.
HEAVY-DUTY FUEL CELL ELECTRIC TRUCK
Quantron has developed a fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) as part of a strategic partnership with Ballard Power Systems. The FCEV truck features an integrated E-axle and hydrogen tank with capacity of 50 kg to provide a range of to 700 km.
As part of its hydrogen offensive, Quantron is further expanding its 360-degree ecosystem Quantron-as-aservice (Qaas). In future, Quantron wants to realise the production of green hydrogen and sustainable electricity and provide hydrogen filling stations and charging options. Through investment subsidies and tax benefits, the price of hydrogen per kilometre will correspond to the price of diesel per kilometre as early as 2024. In the following years, the kilometres driven using a hydrogen-powered drive will become even cheaper than diesel due to the increasing diesel CO2 tax and financing costs.
VOLTA TRUCKS FULL-ELECTRIC 16-TONNE TRUCK
The Volta Zero, a purpose-built full-electric 16-tonne vehicle designed for urban logistics, is designed from the ground up to provide a range of 150 – 200 km.
Volta Trucks recently completed its first customer driving evaluation and feedback sessions of the Volta Zero ‘Design Verification’ prototype in Paris. The prototypes will be loaned to customers for extended periods later in 2022, enabling them to understand how full-electric medium-duty trucks will integrate into their operations.
