Iveco Z Truck concept of zero CO2 emissions, zero accidents, zero stress, shows the future of trucking.
Iveco presents its world premiere Iveco Z Truck , the long-haul concept truck, an autonomous zero-impact vehicle for a totally sustainable transport system.
Iveco Z Truck delivers:
Zero CO2 emissions through optimized Liquefied Natural Gas technology and the use of Bio-methane. The concept is based on a heavy truck running on Bio-LNG with conformable tanks, enhanced aerodynamics and a waste heat recovery system, to deliver long-haul transport with autonomy of 2,200 km and virtually zero CO2 emissions.
Zero accidents through the advanced use of automated driving technologies. It defines how new technologies and autonomous driving will change the role of the driver, who will become an on-board logistics operator.
Zero stress and Zero waste of time with the driver-centred design: the cab is freed from traditional constraints to be reconfigured according to the different uses (driving, automated driving, office work, resting) and the HMI (Human Machine Interface) to adapt the way it provides information as needed – the right information, at the right time, in the right place.
Iveco Z Truck takes a step into the future anticipating the way alternative energy, new technologies and automated driving will change the driver’s life. Its pioneering approach has resulted this concept being protected by 29 patents.
Pierre Lahutte, Iveco Brand President comments:
“We are facing a revolution triggered by the concern for the environment, the economy, and safety on and around vehicles. With our focus on our values of sustainability, TCO, technology and business partnership with our customers, at Iveco we have been working to constantly reduce the impact of our vehicles with alternative fuels such as bio-LNG, and putting the driver and the customer at the centre of our technological and design development. With Iveco Z Truck and its 29 patents, we are defining where our efforts could lead us in the future: a vehicle with a human dimension, designed to accommodate comfortably and safely the work and leisure activities of the driver, adapting each time to his needs. We are defining a future of long-haul freight transport that is totally sustainable – a vehicle that has zero impact on its environment, with zero emissions and zero accidents.”
