And the future is: Bio-LNG. At the Hanover IAA Show, Iveco revealed this concepttruck featuring all kinds of new technologies. ‘Z’ of course stand for Zero, meaning that this concept emits zero CO2.
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. Without doubt, we will see lot’s of features of this concept in future truck generations of Iveco. Hopefully this includes a shower and kitchenette, which are also mounted in this truck.
