We take a closer look at all the latest evidence of how bus and coach electric driveline technology is finding its way into trucks. Daf Trucks has teamed up with a bus and coach manufacturing neighbour, VDL Group, to unveil a battery-powered CF two-axle tractor plated for 40 tonnes gross combination weight and said to have a maximum range of 100km. Spanish coach manufacturer Irizar meanwhile has announced its plan to enter the truck market for the first time next year with an eye-catching three-axle truck employing a battery-electric driveline which is already familiar to many coach and bus operators across Europe. Even more futuristic in appearance is the Shell Lubricants-backed Starship rig on a fully-freighted coast-to-coast trial in the US this month. Yet it is powered not by any electric motor but by a Cummins 15-litre diesel engine. Where does all this leave fleet engineers planning vehicle acquisition policies for maybe the next five years? Good question. We try to answer it. Call Denise on +44 (0) 1428 605605 to find out about the latest subscription offers.
