Good Morning

XCMG had a “new energy” exhibition at the truck factory recently.

First look at XCMG’s hydrogen powered truck which has a 400km duration using a low pressure hydrogen system. Peak power is 480hp, peak torque 2000Nm and rated GVM, 49,000kg.


The “battery swap” system was debuted at the factory. A 6×4 fully electric semi approaching the swap station with a refrigerated trailer.

The fully robotic battery swapping system takes only 5 minutes. This is a big improvement on even the best fast chargers.

XCMG’s electric 8×4 concrete truck with an 8m capacity bowl.

XCMG’s first fully electric ute available in LHD only at this stage. Duration on a charge is 400km and the motor develops peak torque of 800Nm. For comparison NZ’s top selling Ford Ranger 3.2l diesel develops 470Nm.

The 90 tonne fully electric dump truck was also released.

A short walk around is here.
