FPT Industrial and its subsidiary Potenza Technology have been the battery pack solution providers for the electric OX truck that has been showcased on November 10 at the UK Presidency Pavilion on Transport Day at COP26, the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties, held in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November 2021.
Consistent with their commitment to electrification and emissions reduction Potenza Technology, and parent company FPT Industrial, have delivered on their experience and expertise in High Voltage Battery Packs to provide the ideal solution for the OX EV Truck, the only purpose-designed EV for emerging markets.
The world’s first vehicle that is shipped flat packed, the electric OX truck has a cargo payload of 1,800 kg and volume of 8.8 m3 and has been purpose-designed to navigate the extreme terrain conditions that are found in emerging markets.
The electric OX truck enables OX Delivers to provide transport-as-a-service on a pay-as-you-go basis, meaning customers can get their goods to market and trade equitably. Driving prosperous trade in rural emerging markets will unlock opportunities and local economic growth.
In addition to providing affordable and reliable transport, the electric OX truck supports the Sustainable Development Goal focused on reducing pollution and CO2 emissions. Two under-floor battery packs, supplied by Potenza Technology and FPT Industrial, offers a 200 km fully laden range and can easily be recharged through solar panels, with no fossil-fuel systems involved, resulting in zero tailpipe emissions and ultra-low energy costs.
