Multi-fuel engine and powertrains for electric vehicles on display by FPT Industrial at ACT Expo

FPT Industrial is sharing its flexible approach to the energy transition with its displays at ACT Expo 2024, the world’s largest advanced commercial vehicle technology show.

The brand is sharing both ePowertrain solutions and multifuel ICE powertrains in its displays at ACT Expo in Las Vegas.

“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,” says Daniele Pozzo, Head of Marketing & 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.”

Among the displays FPT Industrial will share are the XC13, its first single-base multi-fuel engine, which has three different engine heads for diesel, natural gas, and hydrogen versions. In addition, a variety of integrated electric axles will be on display.

The XC13 engine is specifically designed and engineered with multiple versions to allow maximum standardization of components and minimum impact for facilitated installation on the vehicle. The engine is a key part of FPT Industrial’s group-wide target of reaching its CO2 emissions targets for 2025.

Significant weight reductions come from a lighter cylinder block and cylinder head. A new valvetrain system adds performance and braking power improvements. The diesel version produces up to 600 hp, up 5 percent from the previous C13, and 2,150 lb.-ft. of torque, a 14 percent boost. The natural gas version delivers up to 520 hp and 1,840 lb.-ft. of torque, up 13 and 25 percent respectively from the C13 NG.

CO2 emissions of 9 percent for the diesel unit and 10 percent for the natural gas model have been achieved, but a full 100 percent reduction in net CO2 emissions is achievable when fueled by biomethane.

On the powertrain side, FPT is debuting the eAX375-R integrated electric axle, the first in a new generation of axles suitable for medium-duty 4×2 vehicles up to 29 tons GVW, and heavy-duty 6×4 vehicles up to 49 tons GCVW. It features multi-speed gearing and other design items like bolted wheel ends, allowing it to be scalable and adaptable for different powertrain requirements.

Also on display are the eAX840-R single-speed dual-motor electric axle, which FPT says is the first HDT eAxle on the market for heavy vehicles. The eCD140 Central Drive is a compact solution for incorporating electric drive systems into existing conventional vehicles up to 8 tonnes GVW.
