Cummins unveiled it's a range in engine initiatives indicating its path to the future which involves electric, gas and diesel technology options. With a range of 161 kilometers (100 miles) on a single charge, which additional battery packs could extend to 483 kilometers (300 miles), the AEOS can haul about 22 tons (44,000 pounds) of cargo. There's a regenerative braking system, and the company teased the potential to integrate solar panels onto the trailer roof to send even more juice to the battery pack.
Electric vehicles are beginning to dominate roads, beginning with passenger vehicles and now with delivery trucks.
Six people killed in India due to floods
Catastrophic flooding in 2005 killed more than 500 people in Mumbai , and majority had been living in shantytown slums. Some aid groups active in the region are also responding to the devastating floods in Houston.
This will have a diesel generator on-board, which will boost the range from 100 to 300 miles, cutting diesel costs by 50% those of a normal IC diesel engine. Cummins is a company that has been around for almost 100 years, and this reveal telegraphs the company's intention to wade into battle with a new generation of transportation startups like Nikola Motor Company and electric-bus company Proterra for the future of freight.
A secret to the capability of the AEOS comes in the form of aerodynamics, with Cummins resorting to cameras instead of conventional side mirrors. The truck achieves a significant air drag reduction via its highly streamlined design as well as a better sealed truck body and underbody with no front radiator intrusion. It says advancements in the technology are constantly being made.
Jayasuriya-led Lanka selection panel quits after flop show vs India
Sri Lanka has lost all three test matches by big margins and has already lost the five-match one-day global series 3-0. Customs superintends have also resisted orders from above for ad hoc clearing of goods without getting transferred.
The zero-emissions semi truck is here, and it's not sporting a Tesla logo. The battery's design allows it to hold longer charges as well as cutting down charging time. Currently, it takes about an hour using a high-speed charger.
The company displayed the latest in near-zero natural gas engine technology, super-efficient diesel engines (the X12 and X15), and shared plans to introduce a revolutionary heavy-duty diesel engine in 2022.
Emails reveal Trump plans for building tower in Moscow during 2016 campaign
Sater became an Federal Bureau of Investigation informant after he was convicted years later in a $40 million stock fraud scheme. He spoke shortly after Trump lawyer Cohen already acknowledged that he contacted the Kremlin on behalf of his client.
Given stricter emission regulations coming into force in coming years, plus some cities possibly banning the use of vehicles powered exclusively by internal combustion engines, we should see more and more players in the electrified commercial vehicles segment.
