FPT Industrial’s multi-energy approach towards sustainable on-road propulsion was
revealed at IAA Transportation, the world’s leading trade show for the transportation industry
as well as the most important platform for innovations and technologies in the transport market,
held in Hannover (Germany) from 19 to 25 September 2022.
At its stand (Hall 21/stand 34), FPT Industrial showcased exciting world premieres and the
path the company is taking to reduce the environmental impact of road transport. The
Brand also shared the vital role a leading powertrain manufacturer must play to ensure the
continuity of key businesses together with a guided, smooth and accessible path for the energy
INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE AREA – THE JOURNEY GOES ON
This section of the stand showcased a full line of ICEs, from light to heavy applications. This
means that FPT Industrial continues to believe and invest in internal combustion engines
through range extensions and continuous improvement, state-of-the-art technologies and
competitive solutions, all designed to meet new customer requirements. This course of action
implies a sustainable and focused approach, where FPT Industrial’s leadership and know-how in natural gas for on-road applications will be a springboard to realizing a technology transfer to
meet the net-zero carbon emissions goal.
NEW XC13 – THE CONCEPT TAKES SHAPE
The Brand’s new XC13, unveiled at IAA 2022, represents the embodiment of the Cursor X
concept – the multi-energy, modular, multi-application, and mindful engine. Unmistakable with
the flaming red X imprinted on the engine head, the XC13 is FPT Industrial’s first multi-fuel
single base engine. From diesel to natural gas – including biomethane – hydrogen, and
renewable fuels, the base engine has been designed with multiple versions to offer maximum
component standardization and easy integration into the final product.
The XC13 features unique DNA for on-road multi-applications, is immediately compatible with
a range of different market requirements and emission regulations, with limited impact on
The new XC13 engine positions itself as a primary contributor to achieving short and mid-term
fleet CO2 emissions targets. A major step in the ICE decarbonization path, the XC13
guarantees lower emissions, together with world-beating performance. The diesel version
delivers best-in-class performance up to 600 hp and 2,850 Nm, resulting in +5% power and 14%
torque compared to the current Cursor 13 model. The methane version delivers up to 520 hp
and 2,500 Nm resulting in +13% power and +25% torque compared to the current Cursor 13
Natural Gas. CO2 emissions reductions stand at 9% for the diesel unit and 10% for the methane
model, but the latter can achieve net-zero CO2 emissions when fueled by biomethane. The natural gas version offers diesel-like performance. Designed for the future, and for future
emissions challenges, the XC13 will be ready for Euro VII with simple upgrades.
Braking power also achieves best-in-class performance, with a +29% increase on the diesel
version (up to 530kW @ 2300 rpm) and a stunning +300% on the methane model (up to 245kW
@ 2300 rpm). Last but not least, both versions are significantly lighter: -10% (100 kg) for diesel
and -10% (80 kg) for the methane model. This weight reduction is achieved thanks to the
Compacted Graphite Iron casting for the cylinder head and block, reducing wall thickness while
improving thermo-mechanical strength.
In short, this revolutionary and ultra-versatile engine has all it takes to be a serious contributor
in the sustainable transport sector. Economic and environmental sustainability is
improved by enhanced combustion efficiency, thanks to a new fuel injection system and higher
peak cylinder pressure, reduced friction, down speeding and new divided-flow turbo – a unique
concept for the Diesel version – smart auxiliary equipment management, and by FPT Industrial’s
proprietary software for integrated combustion and ATS control.
The 152 kW F1C and the N67 NG for commercial vehicles complete the Internal Combustion
Engine line-up presented by FPT Industrial at IAA Transportation 2022.
ePOWERTRAIN AREA – ZERO EMISSIONS SOLUTIONS NOW
In this area, FPT Industrial clarified its current and future position as zero emissions solution
provider with primary focus on eAxles, Central Drive, Modular Battery Packs and Battery
Management Systems. This position will be achieved with the intervention of two different yet
connected factors. Firstly, the imminent opening of the new ePlant for ePowertrain production,
as well as continuing to create disruptive solutions, through its DNA as a game changer and an Open Innovation approach, acting with an agile mindset and also partnering with smaller
companies in the electric mobility sector. Through this approach, FPT Industrial aims to become
a fully fledged ePowertrain system manufacturer. SECOND-GENERATION eAXLE FOR 4X2/6×2 MCVS AND 6X4 HCVS – THE FUTURE IS
With the unveiling of the eAX375-R, FPT Industrial has clarified its strategy for the
electrification path of medium and heavy commercial vehicles. The new eAxle will suit
medium-duty 4×2/6×2 and heavy-duty 6×4 vehicles, delivering high performance and efficiency,
thanks to its two-speed gear set. The second-generation eAxle is designed to be fully
scalable, to accommodate specific customer requirements, and to broaden the range of
applications. Thanks to this new addition, the eDriveline range also includes light and heavy
versions, providing solutions for electrification for all vans, light, medium, and heavy trucks and
buses from 3.5 to 44 tonnes – and beyond.
CENTRAL DRIVE FOR LCVs – INTEGRATING ELECTRIC DRIVE INTO CONVENTIONAL
The electric Central Drive 140 is a complete, compact solution for integrating electric drive
systems into existing conventional light commercial vehicles and minibuses (Gross Vehicle
Weight up to 8 tonnes). FPT Industrial’s engineering team has designed a lean and robust
central drive, in order to guarantee easy integration with existing platforms and optimized
space during installation for integration of battery packs. The eCD 140 delivers peak power of
up to 140 kW and axle torque of up to 1.6 kNm; it is designed for rear-wheel-drive
applications, and offers outstanding efficiency (>92%) and durability (up to 350 km). It
incorporates a parking lock system for safety, and is easily adaptable for hybrid solutions.
Visitors to the show were able to see the eCD at the IVECO booth.
BATTERY PACKS FOR BUSES – PASSENGER TRANSPORT GOES GREEN
Created in partnership with Microvast, FPT Industrial’s battery packs have been developed
for LCVs, minibuses and bus applications, with Microvast taking care of the modules and
cells, and FPT Industrial creating the housing and handling complete integration.
At IAA 2022, FPT Industrial showcased the new 69 kWh battery for bus applications for the
very first time, a product which offers high energy density in a versatile solution, thanks to its
modular pack system. It has been developed in partnership with Microvast, a market leader in
ultra-fast charging and long-life battery power systems for industrial applications.
CUSTOMER SERVICE – FPT INDUSTRIAL STANDS ALONGSIDE ITS CUSTOMERS AT
