“CursorX is FPT’s Industrial vision on how power sources will be in 2030,” said Annalisa Stupenengo, FPT Industrial’s brand president.
CursorX is a multi-power integrated unit designed for multiple applications, that can combine clean diesel, natural gas, electric, and hydrogen fuel cells.
Pierpaolo Biffali, FPT Product Engineering, explained that in a truck application, the battery/electric configuration will allow 200 km autonomy. This raises to 400 km in the electric/natural gas hybrid option. And up to 800 km range with 200-kW hydrogen fuel cells.
“The concept is designed to be installed in a vehicle with cabin, but also in driverless cabin-free machinery of the future. It does not need a hood or cover anymore, but becomes a structural part of the vehicle or stationary installation,” commented David Wilkie, from CNH Industrial Design Center.
