Truck on biomethane: IVECO Z Truck – the owner of 29 patents

September 21, 2016 0 By autotimesnews

At International Salon of commercial vehicles IAA 2016 in Hanover hosted the world premiere of the revolutionary truck unit IVECO Z Truck.

Company IVECO traditionally, has been the past few years, brings at the IAA Motor Show in Hannover something futuristic. And if the two-year-old star of the exhibition stand was the delivery van of the future IVECO Vision, that at this time – a conceptual long-haul truck IVECO Z Truck.

IVECO Z Truck corrected can be called revolutionary truck. The machine has the 29th patented solutions. Concept runs on biomethane and can travel without refueling up to 2200 km. In addition, truck has improved aerodynamics and transformable cockpit.

Best truck can reduce fuel consumption by 33% and significantly reduce CO2 emissions. IVECO Z Truck is equipped with a new generation engine, which runs on biomethane. The engine has an output of 460 hp and a maximum torque of 2000 Nm. With him in a pair of runs automated 16-speed Powershift transmission. The power unit is applied low viscosity engine oil PETRONAS Urania, which also contributes to lower fuel consumption and cleaner exhaust.

On towing vehicle IVECO Z Truck are innovative tires with low rolling resistance – Michelin X Line Energy, which can save up to 1 liter of fuel per 100 km. Tires are equipped with special sensors RFID, which can check them on various parameters: wear, temperature, pressure.

The car also boasts of innovative fuel tanks developed by SAG. They are made of aluminum, insulated by MLI system (Multi Layer Insulation), a multi-layer foil that saves them from high temperatures. Two tanks have a total capacity of 1,200 liters, which provides a cruising range of 2,200 km. This is 60% more than the mass of the truck on the natural gas IVECO Stralis NP and more than diesel analogue.

Onboard heat emitted regeneration system Rankine Cycle Waste Heat Recovery uses an exhaust gas as a heat source, it also reduces fuel consumption.

IVECO Z Truck, developed by the Center for Industrial Design CNH shows how might look a main truck of the near future. This applies both to improve aerodynamics, improved security, and the creation of fundamentally new residential cabin space.

IVECO Z Truck, developed by the Center for Industrial Design CNH shows might look like a main truck of the near future. This applies equally to improve aerodynamics, improved security, and the creation of fundamentally new residential cabin space.

Automated driving will radically change the role of a driver who will spend less time behind the wheel and engage in office work and rest more. IVECO Z Truck allows you to transform the cabin at its discretion, make the stay in it as pleasant as possible: in city traffic, on highways or in standalone mode on motorways.

In the parking lot, the back wall of the cabin can move away back to 500 mm. This increases the usable area and enjoy amenities such as king-size bed, kitchenette, shower and a multimedia unit.

The special HMI (Human Machine Interface) enables the driver to constantly monitor the main system of the truck. All information is displayed on the smart windshield. While driving it’s less distracting from the control and improves security.

Let’s hope that a large part of the IVECO Z Truck know-how will be used in the production of main trucks in the coming years. For example can serve as an imitation of a conceptual wagon IVECO Vision, which gave a lot of new solutions to its serial fellow – IVECO New Daily.
