FPT Industrial is exhibiting at ACT Expo 2024, until May 23 in Las Vegas. At its stand, FPT is putting into practice its flexible approach to the energy transition by showcasing both ePowertrain solutions, and multifuel ICE powertrains.

Visitors have the chance to see up close the 6×4 eAxle eAX375, a first for the North American market, and the first model of FPT Industrial’s second 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.

“By exhibiting at ACT Expo 2024, we are showing 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 & 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.”

FPT Industrial’s e-axle range at ACT Expo

Making its debut in North America and marking the birth of the second generation of FPT Industrial eAxles, the eAX375-R integrated electric axle is suitable for medium-duty 4×2 vehicles of up to 29 tons GVW, and heavy-duty 6×4 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. 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.

FPT Industrial introduced this axle co-developed with input from Nikola for the Nikola Tre Class 8 truck in the United States. 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.


The central drive for LCVs and the new XC13 ICE

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 tonnes 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.

Finally, FPT Industial puts on display its brand-new XC13 multi-fuel internal combustion engine, introduced for the very first time last year in Barcelona, along with IVECO. From diesel and natural gas (including biomethane) to hydrogen and renewable fuels, this base engine has been designed and engineered with multiple versions to allow maximum standardization of components, and minimum impact for facilitated installation on the vehicle. The new engine is positioned as a primary contributor to achieving the 2025 fleet-wide CO2 emissions target, the group’s most significant decarbonization program.
