Industrial vehicle electric powertrain choices

Industrial vehicle electric powertrain choices

Mostly, the view at the recent Industrial EV conference in Germany was that we go from HEV to maybe PHEV but certainly end with plug-in then, where possible, energy independent PEV with most industrial and commercial vehicles. The transition will be slow and involve fuel cells only in niche applications. In contrast to cars, fuel cell hydrogen charging is little trouble with industrial vehicles because they are short range and back-to-base. However, they need supercapacitors or batteries to accept inputs and provide surges and sometimes both so it gets complicated.

Market forecasts, key powertrains, components for industrial EVs

n this second article on the iVT Electric and Hybrid Industrial Vehicle Technology Symposium November 9-10 in Cologne Germany, we look at powertrains and components being favoured. Because of the large power surges in and out with many of these vehicles, you more often saw supercapacitors compared to on-road vehicles and hybrids remain the preferred option by far.

The iVT Electric and Hybrid Industrial Vehicle Technology Symposium November 9-10 took place in Cologne Germany, the first of a series splitting out Industrial EVs from the whole subject of EVs and batteries covered in UKIP, the organisers' Novi Michigan event every year. About 200 attended with around six table top exhibitors. Most of the speakers were on topic and had valuable things to say. Others varied from McLaren to hydraulics people and those modestly improving conventional vehicles.
