Irizar Introduces Electric Truck With CNG Range Extender

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The Irizar Group, a Spanish startup, is introducing the electric Irizar ie truck into its range of zero-emissions products. The electric truck responds to several market needs and makes it possible to drive in cities and urban areas without creating any atmospheric or acoustic pollution.

The Irizar ie truck presented is an electric version with a CNG range extender, so it can drive in electric mode in the city while being able to extend its autonomy and expand working time using an engine that runs on natural gas. Different variations of the purely electric version are currently being developed.

Comfort and safety were priorities in developing the cockpit. The low position of the driver’s seat, the width of the windscreens and side windows and ergonomic access to all the controls and the dashboard screen are features emphasized in the design.

The cabin was developed exclusively for urban applications. The cabin has a 4-person capacity and a single access stairway with the goal of ensuring safe transport for the driver and their companions. That fact makes the vehicle the one with the lowest access height on the market.

The unit being presented is an 8-meter-long 6×2 version with a carrying capacity of 18 tonnes. The vehicle has regenerative braking functionality so the kinetic energy of the vehicle can be used as much as possible. It includes a pneumatic door that swings inwards, which makes for safer transport when faced with any obstacles in the road. Furthermore, the door includes anti-entrapment sensors, a photocell and a sensitive edge on the leaf to avoid any kind of unintended incidents during faster application.

It is equipped with the latest technology in active safety and it has stability control. Lane changes (LDWS) can be detected because of the built in camera and front radar sensor and the driver is alerted if the vehicle swerves unintentionally. It also has emergency assisted braking (AEBS), which activates the emergency brake if the vehicle gets too close to the vehicle on front of it and the driver doesn’t react in time.
