Range-extended electric truck prototype on test 01 March 2016

A revolutionary range-extended electric vehicle prototype, claimed to be designed for trucks and buses from 2 to 26 tonnes gvw, is undergoing endurance testing at the Millbrook test track.

Developer Charge R&D (an internationally funded but UK-based high-tech company) says the goal is to prove its potential to deliver ultra-low emissions and commercial vehicle operating costs “far lower than fossil fuel equivalents”.

The first test programme using this first prototype will be followed by several others this year, all aimed at evaluating major components as well as proving the fuel efficiency of the range extended electric concept truck.

“We believe that very soon we will be able to demonstrate that we have found the ultimate target of emissions-free heavy vehicle technology – ultra low emissions at much less than the cost of diesel power,” insists Charge technical director Glenn Saint.
