FPT Industrial showcases future mobility solutions at Busworld

FPT Industrial, a part of the Iveco Group specializing in eco-friendly powertrains, will showcase its forward-looking transportation solutions at Busworld 2023 in Brussels, Belgium, from October 6 to 12, 2023. Visit FPT Industrial at Hall 4, Booth #424, to explore their extensive lineup of environmentally-friendly innovations for mass transit. These solutions reflect a strategic commitment to meeting environmental, transportation company, and passenger needs simultaneously.

Busworld, held since 1971, is the world’s biggest B2B exhibition exclusively for buses and coaches. The 2023 edition will include all the major bus manufacturers, accounting for approximately 80% of total vehicle production in Europe and Turkey. FPT Industrial, making its first appearance as an independent exhibitor at Busworld, will display products and solutions in both internal combustion engines and e-powertrains, where the brand is a leader.

FPT Industrial specializes in zero-emission solutions for buses, primarily focusing on battery packs and battery management systems (BMSs).

FPT Industrial will present three eagerly anticipated e-powertrain products at Busworld 2023. The 37 kWh eBS37 EVO battery pack, ideal for minibuses, has a high energy density (up to 140 Wh/kg), an eight-year warranty, and excellent safety features. The eBM5, their first battery management system (BMS), is also included, which improves safety and performance. Furthermore, the 69 kWh eBS69 bus battery pack, known for its exceptional energy density (up to 178 Wh/kg), comes with a ten-year warranty and is designed for bus installations.

FPT Industrial has partnered with Reefilla, a Turin-based innovative startup, to focus on the eBS37 battery model. Reefilla is well-known for its innovative predictive mobile charging service, which is available to both commercial fleets and individual users. They plan to repurpose batteries from commercial electric vehicles and minibuses as part of a pilot project. Reefilla will receive eBS37 batteries that are no longer suitable for powering electric vehicles. Over 50% of the internal components and modules of the batteries will be salvaged by the startup. These salvaged parts will be used in Reefilla’s Fillee mobile power banks, which are used to recharge their customers’ electric vehicles.

In the diesel and natural-gas engine business for buses, FPT Industrial is a trusted manufacturer with engines ranging from 3 to 8.7 litres, suitable for minibuses, city/intercity buses, and coaches. They are a leader in the intercity bus segment through IVECO BUS. At Busworld 2023, they’ll showcase the N67 NG engine, offering exceptional performance (up to 285 HP and 1250 Nm), low fuel consumption, reduced engine noise, and up to 15% lower CO2 emissions compared to equivalent diesel engines. This Euro VI Step E-compliant engine is designed for city and intercity buses.
