Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation today launched the latest version of its Canter Eco Hybrid light-duty truck in Japan. While significantly reducing carbon dioxide emissions, the latest version increases fuel economy to about 11.6 km/liter (2-ton truck) by optimizing the program of the hybrid control unit. This makes the Canter Eco Hybrid the most fuel efficient hybrid truck in Japan in the 2-ton class. Now sales of the Canter Eco Hybrid have exceeded 900 units since launch, including sales outside Japan in London, Ireland, Australia and Hong Kong. The Canter Eco Hybrid installed with a VG turbo engine 4M42(T3) (96kW/130ps) comes also with superior drivability in combination with its 2-pedal INOMAT-II mechanical automated transmission.
The New Breed Granite, installed with a Cummins Westport ISL-G gas engine, is the only concrete agitator that reduces particulate matter (soot) by 92% and nitrous oxides by 90%, compared with current Australian legislative requirements (US04)1. In fact, it is the first concrete agitator to meet US EPA 2010 emission levels, not expected to be a requirement in Australia until 2016. The truck was commissioned by Boral as the next generation of Hippy Trucks – powered by natural gas.
Dean Bestwick, General Manager Mack Trucks, said this world-first achievement started out as a desire by Boral to provide the next generation of environmentally friendly gas trucks – thereby establishing a strategic leadership position for both companies. “Engineered, designed and built in our Australian factory at Wacol, this highly productive heavy-duty concrete agitator, boasts a globally unequalled exhaust emission output. It’s testament to our local innovation and engineering capability,” he said. Shane Graham, Boral’s General Manager, ACM Concrete, said the truck has just finished a four week trial in Sydney where it matched the carrying capacity of the other vehicles in the fleet and has already proven to be a cost effective transport solution.
The all-wheel drive system OptiTrack is being given its world premiere presentation in Hanover too. Based on a "conventional" Premium Lander 4x2, this version offers temporary 4x4 transmission - together with all its advantages - only when it is really needed, avoiding the disadvantages of all-wheel drive which reduces payload and increases consumption. With OptiTrack, Renault Trucks offers a solution providing 490 kg of additional payload while at the same time reducing consumption (compared with a conventional 4x4) by up to 10%. The OptiTrack solution also includes a number of world firsts: total hydraulic system compatibility with the Optidriver+ robotised gearbox and all forms of power takeoff, plus activation of the OptiTrack function by simply pressing a button on the dashboard, when rolling or stationary.
Today Renault Trucks company has announce new models, which is going to show in Hannover in September. Already optimised as far as consumption is concerned, the Premium Long Distance will be shown at Hanover in its Premium Optifuel version, the only solution of its kind on the market which combines a truck with driving instruction. Certified by an independent laboratory, the TÜV, this offer can deliver fuel savings of 6.4%. Optifuel Solutions is a comprehensive product and service offering which helps companies save fuel and diminish the proportion of their long-term operating costs spent on "consumption". These consist of both technical elements and services. Optifuel Technology which incorporates the best of Renault Trucks' technology related to fuel savings, such as: SCR, the Optidriver+ or Optitronic robotised gearbox, the automatic engine cut-out, the new Euro V DXi 11 and DXi 13 engines, accessories dedicated to reducing fuel consumption such as side or roof deflectors that can be easily adjusted, without tools.
Hino Motors USA says its re-designed 2011 medium-duty truck (MDT) lineup will hit the street in September. Styling changes bring a new hood and front grille, while driver safety and efficiency improves with the addition of a Bluetooth-enabled GPS stereo and a new easy-to-read driver information display. The big news, however, is the launch of the all new class 5 Hino 198. It's built on a 19,500-lb GVWR truck chassis with the same styling seen on all the 2011 Hino MDT’s.
