Exogy's EX-500 semi-trailer enables your electric fleet to run missions of up to 750 miles by extending your e-truck's range by 500 miles. Powered by conventional diesel fuel, Exogy's Plug-In hybrid solution provides the same operational flexibility as conventional diesel trucks while considerably reducing semi-trailer truck operating costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
Commercially available battery electric heavy-duty trucks have a current maximum range of 250 miles which limits operation to last mile missions. Exogy's semi-trailer extends the range of battery electric truck by allowing fleets to operate on electric grid power on their first trip segment while using the generator to extend the truck range when required.
Through a proprietary power conversion and transfer system, Exogy's provides a novel solution to the market, one that accelerates a transition toward a carbon neutral economical while creating significant economic benefit to fleet operators.
Power conversion from diesel to electricity is performed by a state-of-the-art generator. This generator turns on only when the electric truck battery power level decrease below a percentage set by the operator. This prioritizes the use of grid electrical power over fossil fuel resulting in significant fuel saving. Robust and efficient, the generator requires minimal maintenance.
To connect the generator to the electric truck's drive train, Exogy's is developing a power conversion and transfer system. This interface provides the driver controls and monitoring of the hybrid system.
Battery electric trucks scheduled for deliveries in 2022 have an average maximum range of 250 miles between charges. The EX-500 adds an additional 500 miles for a total truck and trailer range of 750 miles. Equipped with a 100 gallons diesel tank, the EX-500 can provide continuous power to the truck while in operation or recharge the truck battery in approximately 3 hours if stopped.
Exogy's solution enables electric trucks to operate on electric power on their first 250 miles while using the diesel generator to extend the truck range by an additional 500 miles. By leveraging the efficiency of an electric drive train and low cost from electric grid power, this plug-in hybrid solution can reduce a fleet fuel consumption by 30%.
By using clean grid electrical power, Exogy's plug-in hybrid solution can reduce your fleet greenhouse gas emission by up to 40 %. This can allow your company to secure significant financial assistance from governments, reduce your fleet exposure to diesel price fluctuation and enhance your corporate image.
