IAA COMMERCIAL VEHICLES 2018

Hannover Motor Show
On-site report
Organized by the German Automobile Industry Association, the International Automobile Association Cars held in Frankfurt and the IAA Commercial Vehicles held in Hannover (VDA) together form the world's largest motor show. The recent trends towards electromobility and self-driving systems for motor coaches, trucks and commercial vehicles are steadily progressing. One outstanding feature of the 2018 show was the wide selection of solutions on display for 'last mile transportation', which is the biggest bottleneck for logistics and distribution.

IAA CV 2018 was held under the theme of 'Driving tomorrow', which included electromobility, self-driving, digitization, and urban logistics. The show attracted a total of 2,174 exhibitors from 48 countries, and hosted 435 world premieres. The number of visitors exceeded 250,000. Although there are still many issues regarding electromobility for heavy vehicles, in the area of commercial vehicles it's approaching the full-scale launching stage. At the booths of the major suppliers, there were many exhibits focusing on power trains, which have evolved in response to environmental regulations. They featured self-driving using an assist system and autonomous running, networking, reducing the burden on delivery service drivers, and 48V mild hybrids.

ELECTRIC POWERED COMMERCIAL VEHICLES

Truck & Buses

All-electric buses run in major European cities

Daimler, which was one of the pioneers in introducing a fully-electric bus, the 'eCitaro', is expanding its predominance in the field of e-mobility for heavy vehicles, as demonstrated by the introduction of its 'e-Actros' truck. Moreover, Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC), a Daimler group company, announced its 'E-FUSO Vision One'. MAN, a subsidiary of automaker Volkswagen AG, showcased its 'Lion's City E' all-electric bus, which employs a new system with one centrally mounted motor to drive multiple axles.

Can electric motors surpass large diesel engines?

The 'eActros' displayed at the Mercedes-Benz booth is truly a monster equipped with the total of 11 batteries inside and below the chassis with a usable total capacity of 240kWh. The drivetrain consists of two electric motors installed near the wheel hubs with a maximum output of 2 x 126kW, giving the vehicle a range of about 200 kilometers.

48V Mild Hybrid System

48V Mild Hybrid System

"48V Mild Hybrids" have a simple structure in which parts such as a 48V lithium ion battery, an AC/DC inverter and an ISG (Integrated Starter Generator) are added to a conventional engine system. As a result, compared with a strong hybrid, a large cost reduction is possible, and it's said that the improvement in fuel efficiency increases as the vehicle gets larger.
