Project Title: Efficient and affordable Zero Emission logistics through NEXT generation Electric TRUCKs
Duration: 42 months (01/07/2022 – 31/12/2025)
Description: NextETRUCK aims to address different optimization challenges regarding tomorrow’s urban and suburban logistics for medium duty vehicles into systems-approach that is reliable, strongly integrated, affordable, and flexible enough to re-applied to different applications via dedicated tools/methods. NextETRUCK proposes a concept that takes into account the transition to ZE, providing a robust, predictable and safe in both short- and long-term, seamlessly integrable to its subcomponents and outer systems (strongly bonded and dedicated tools are present), attractive for a large range of stakeholders, and cost-effective, scalable and efficient
Objectives: The overarching objective of the NextETRUCK is to play a pioneering role in the decarbonization of the vehicle fleets, via demonstrating next generation e-mobility concepts consisting of holistic, innovative, affordable, competitive and synergetic zero emission vehicles and ecosystems for tomorrow’s medium freight haulage, while aiming significant leap of knowledge at component, vehicle, fleet, infrastructure and ecosystem levels, via innovations at e-powertrain components and architectures, smart charging infrastructure and management, improved thermal design of the cabin, fleet management systems with IoT and digital tools.
HIT key role and responsibilities: HIT is a project partner and responsible for the Evaluation, Impact Assessment and upscaling strategy (WP8 leader).
