The Volvo SuperTruck 2 program, a public-private partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), managed to achieve a 134% increase in freight efficiency. It will make its public debut at the American Trucking Associations’ 2023 Management Conference & Exhibition, which takes place October 14-17 in Austin, Texas.
This program aims to promote research and development to improve the freight- efficiency of heavy-duty Class 8 long-haul tractor-trailer trucks. It features a 48-volt micro hybrid system that functions as a generator with an integrated starter, resulting in power for driver comfort features, such as an all-electric HVAC system.
- MOST CLASSIC AND RELIABLE - The GXL V2 is the Gotrax most classic, mature, and reliable electric scooter . The GLX V2 has an large console, long battery life, folding mechanism, and has passed stringent UL2272 testing.
- IMPROVED BATTERY LIFE - Featuring a 187.2Wh Battery the GXL V2 travels up to 12.5 miles recharges in about 4 Hours. Top Speed 15.5mph. We suggest you check the tires once a month and inflate tires in time to ensure that the tire pressure is 340kpa(50PSI).
- IMPROVED MOTOR - The 250 Watt Motor provides high torque but mantains a low power consumption. The Gotrax GXL V2 reaches a top speed of 15.5mph and can handle up to 220lbs.
We are extremely proud of the accomplishments of our advanced engineering team who worked on SuperTruck 2. A program of this magnitude pushes the limits in every possible area — creativity, problem solving, feasibility and innovation, to which we feel we did successfully. Some of the technologies on SuperTruck 2 will most certainly shape the future of trucking and change everything we once thought possible,” said Peter Voorhoeve, president, Volvo Trucks North America.
