Ten Electric Heavy-Duty Trucks: Alternatives to Tesla Semi Truck by Automotive Territory

Geschreven op 4-2-2018 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Vervoer en OV Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

If you were to search for an electric cargo truck the first few pages of search results will be filled with news about the Tesla Semi truck and its incredible specifications.

However, if this heavy load vehicle has just been presented to the world as a prototype and is expected to be sold from 2020, there is quite a number of already operational electric trucks that serve in fleets of various companies around the world, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by millions of tons each year.

Vehicles featured in this video:
Thor Trucks ET: California based startup called Thor Trucks recently presented a prototype that can become the main competitor for Tesla Semi Truck. The vehicle is called Thor ET-One and is available in several capacities.

AEOS from Cummins: By introducing their all-electric AEOS Hauler tractor in August 2017, Cummins actually beat Tesla to the punch by two and a half months. AEOS is a sleek looking cargo truck, that belongs to the Class 7 semi.

Nikola 1: The American start up Nikola Motor has presented a truck of the future Nikola One that will hit the road by the year 2020.

E-Fuso Vision One: The E-Fuso is designed with the vision for local and intercity transportation given that the distance is within the 220 miles range, that is guarantedd by a 300 kWh battery.

E-Moss: This Dutch company has been manufacturing electric trucks, vans and buses for six years now with the first orders made by 8 Dutch companies back in 2012. It is worth mentioning that E-Moss does not build trucks from the bottom-up.

MAN e-Truck: Volkswagen is currently active across the whole spectrum of electrified vehicles and their subsidiary Man Truck & Bus AG is spearheading development of electric freighters.

Framo Electric Truck: Framo Electric Truck is a series of German-made electric semitrailer vehicles with max tonnage of 44 tonnes and power of 400 kW.

Tevva Motors: Tevva Motors electric trucks claim to be the future of urban delivery. They have pure electric range of 100 miles but can be equipped with a hybrid powertrain to relieve range anxiety.

E-Force One AG: E-Force One AG is the first electric truck utilizing a new battery technology build by the Swiss manufacturer of the same name. It is already available for purchase and is operated on European roads.

    Peterbilt becomes latest truck maker to work on all-electric class 8 truck

    The truck maker announced a partnership with Meritor and TransPower, who will supply all-electric drivetrain systems for two Peterbilt vehicle platforms.

    They will produce the electric powertrains for 12 Peterbilt all-electric Class 8 Model 579 day cab tractors and three Model 520 refuse trucks.

    The trucks will be used in a test program for about one year in order to “prove out the ranges, operating hours and charging requirements of vehicles operating in real-world service conditions alongside conventional diesel-fueled trucks.”

    Thor Wants to Throw Down an Electric Hammer with the ET-One on Tesla by Bloomberg

    Thor wants to beat Tesla to the market with electric semi-trucks. Thor’s custom models are due in 2019 and meant for short hauls.

    ET-One was built to haul 80,000 pounds with instant torque at zero RPM. It’s a powerful tool designed to get the job done, stay on the road, and save operators money. The Thor Powertrain is the heart of every vehicle built. It is what gives the vehicle its unique driving characteristics and sets it apart from a conventional semi-truck. Gone is everything you knew about electric vehicles. Electric is powerful, electric is sexy, and electric is here to stay.

    The ET-One was designed with the fleet-operator and truck driver in mind. Design choices were influenced by managers and drivers of fleets ranging 10 to 10,000 vehicles in size. Thor has done everything to understand the concerns of its customer and design a vehicle that integrates seamlessly with an existing fleet.

    Logistiek dienstverlener UPS gaat later dit jaar een elektrische distributietruck van de Amerikaanse start-up Thor testen in en rond Los Angeles.

    UPS werkt samen met een hele reeks bedrijven om alternatieve aandrijflijnen uit te proberen in een poging schadelijke emissies tot een minimum te beperken. Elektrische voertuigen hebben daarbij de voorkeur van UPS.

    De elektrische bezorgtruck van Thor heeft een range van circa 150 km en heeft een batterijpakket dat door Thor zelf is ontwikkeld. UPS gaat de Thor Class 6 truck zes maanden lang testen. Voor Thor zelf betekent dit ook dat er een soort rijdend laboratorium ontstaat waarop het haar ontwikkeling verder kan enten. Vanuit dezelfde benadering werkt UPS ook samen met Arrival, Daimler, Tesla, Workhorse en andere fabrikanten.

    The Volta Zero Electric Truck 2022 by Volta Trucks

    More than probably any other company in this sector, Volta Trucks has adopted the spirit and some of the design of the Tesla Semi. It has the driver seated in the middle of the cabin in its newly revealed Volta Zero. It has two fairly large vertical touchscreens flanking the steering wheel, and one more in a horizontal position behind the steering wheel. The steering wheel itself is even a bit reminiscent of a Tesla steering wheel.

    Volta Trucks says that it’s “the world’s first purpose-built full-electric 16-tonne commercial vehicle,” but the first pilot trucks are due for sometime in the first half of 2021, and real production and deliveries are scheduled to start in 2022.

    “The Volta Zero will start undertaking operator trials with some of Europe’s largest parcel delivery and logistics companies in H1-2021. Orders have already been taken from companies wanting to secure the first customer-specification vehicles, which are due to be delivered when production starts in 2022.”

    The Volta Zero is not meant for long-haul or even medium-haul duty, though. It is tailored for package deliveries within the city. As such, it will have a pure-electric range of 150–200 kilometers (95–125 miles). That comes from a 160–200 kWh lithium-iron-phosphate battery pack.
