PACCAR is exhibiting its next generation commercial vehicles at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, featuring advanced, customer-focused technologies. CES 2024 runs from January 9-12, with PACCAR’s exhibits located in booth #3501, West Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“PACCAR is developing the transportation industry’s most important technologies,” said John Rich, PACCAR senior vice president and chief technology officer. “These include industry-leading battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles that help customers operate with the lowest emissions and outstanding efficiency. We are investing in multiple zero emissions technologies in order to have the right trucks and transportation solutions for our customers.”
PACCAR is displaying several advanced products and technologies at CES 2024 including:
• Kenworth’s T680 Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV)
• Peterbilt’s SuperTruck II
• DAF’s XD Battery Electric Vehicle
• PACCAR Parts’ Electric Vehicle Charging Solutions
PACCAR is leveraging next-generation hydrogen fuel cell technology developed in partnership with Toyota Motor North America, Inc. The companies have expanded their partnership to develop and commercialize the technology in Kenworth T680 and Peterbilt Model 579 Class 8 trucks. The powertrain was recently awarded the Zero Emission Powertrain certification by the California Air Resources Board. The Kenworth T680 FCEV on display at CES, and the hydrogen fuel cell powered Peterbilt Model 579, offer uncompromised zero emissions heavy-duty operations with up to a 450-mile range, an 82,000 lbs. max gross combination weight rating, and refueling times that are consistent with traditional diesel trucks. To date, PACCAR has received more than 150 paid deposits for Kenworth and Peterbilt FCEVs with customer deliveries commencing in 2025.
The Peterbilt SuperTruck II is a testbed for future product technologies. It was developed as part of a U.S. Department of Energy program to improve the efficiency of goods transportation. The SuperTruck II features an advanced clean diesel engine that uses waste heat recovery to achieve a 55% Brake Thermal Efficiency improvement, an efficient 48-volt mild hybrid powertrain, electrified engine accessories and enhanced aerodynamics.
The DAF XD Battery Electric truck is designed for urban and suburban transport, delivering up to 310 miles on a single charge. With 325 kW fast charging, the truck can charge from 0-80% in just over 45 minutes or 0-100% in less than two hours. The DAF XD Battery Electric truck can achieve a daily range of more than 600 miles with the largest available battery pack and strategic charging.
PACCAR Parts will showcase DC fast chargers available for Kenworth, Peterbilt and DAF electric vehicles. PACCAR Parts’ electric vehicle charger portfolio strategically covers PACCAR’s full range of electric vehicles.
“PACCAR brings an industry-leading portfolio of zero emissions vehicles and technologies, and over a century of heavy-duty innovation, to support customers’ operational and environmental goals,” added Rich.
