FPT Industrial, the Iveco Group brand dedicated to the design, production and sale of low-environmental impact powertrains, will be exhibiting at ACT Expo 2024, the world’s largest advanced commercial vehicle technology show, in Las Vegas, Nevada, from May 20 to May 23, 2024

At its stand (booth #3759, West Hall), the Brand will be putting into practice its flexible approach to the energy transition by showcasing both ePowertrain solutions, and multifuel internal combustion engine (ICE) powertrains. In keeping with its 360° approach toward carbon neutrality, FPT Industrial will offset the emissions generated by its stand at ACT Expo. All the factors and actions involved in the stand’s construction, dismantling, power and transportation will be taken into consideration, and the total carbon footprint will be offset through the purchase of certified carbon credits.

Visitors will, indeed, have the chance to see up close the 6x4 eAxle eAX375, a first for the North American market and the first model of FPT Industrial’s 2nd generation eAxles; the eAX840-R, the first HDT eAxle on the market; and the LCV Central Drive eCD140; as well as the new XC13, FPT Industrial’s first single-base multi-fuel engine, shown with its three different engine heads for diesel, natural gas and hydrogen versions.Source: FPT IndustrialSource: FPT Industrial

“By exhibiting at ACT Expo 2024, we will show the vehicle industry our multifaceted capability of delivering efficient, viable and tested solutions, whatever the technology and the fuel,” said Daniele Pozzo, head of marketing and product portfolio at FPT Industrial. “This event presents a significant opportunity to connect with key stakeholders, explore new business opportunities, and showcase our commitment to sustainable transportation solutions.”

eAX375-R A high performance, efficient solution for medium- and heavy-duty applications

Making its debut in North America and marking the birth of the 2nd generation of FPT Industrial eAxles, the eAX375-R integrated electric axle is suitable for medium-duty 4x2 vehicles of up to 29 tons GVW, and heavy-duty 6x4 vehicles of up to 49 tons GCVW. Thanks to multi-speed gearing, the eAX375-R delivers high performance and outstanding efficiency.

The design developed by FPT Industrial’s team, such as the bolted wheel end, allows the electric axle to be scalable and extremely adaptable to meet different powertrain requirements. This is how the brand’s know-how supports everyday customer needs. Up to 30,000 Nm/22,000 lb-ft torque at the wheels, and service life of up to a million miles (depending on customer mission), it ensures sustainability and delivers uptime performance.
eAX840-R Single-speed dual-motor electric axle

FPT Industrial introduced this axle co-developed with input from Nikola for the Nikola TRE Class 8 truck in the U.S. and then adapted it to meet the specific needs of European markets. As the first HDT eAxle on the market, it is designed for heavy vehicles, with multiple transmission ratios available. The eAX840-R is a groundbreaking solution in the electric truck market, offering a unique combination of efficiency, performance and ease of integration. Its single-speed design eliminates the need for a transmission control unit (TCU), simplifying the overall system and reducing development time. This enabled FPT Industrial to bring the eAX840-R to market in just two years from the concept stage.

eCD140 Incorporating an electric drive system into existing conventional vehicles

FPT Industrial’s Central Drive — eCD140 for light commercial applications is a compact and complete solution for incorporating electric drive systems into existing conventional vehicles of up to 8 tons GVW. FPT Industrial’s team has designed a lean, integrated central drive system, which guarantees easy implementation into existing platforms, and optimized residual space for installation of battery packs.
For rear-wheel-drive applications, as with all FPT Industrial products, the eCD140 is extremely durable, efficient, and reliable (up to 350,000 km/220,000 miles, with lifetime oil fill depending on customer mission).
