TruckShowX attendees will have a unique opportunity to experience a ride in the latest zero-emissions vehicles from PACCAR Australia.

The local manufacturer of Kenworth and DAF trucks will showcase its hydrogen fuel cell T680 Kenworth prime mover, featuring a Toyota hydrogen fuel cell electric powertrain offering 470hp, with a claimed range of 560km and a 15-minute refuel time.

The Kenworth will feature alongside an all-electric DAF LF featuring a 260kW electric motor powered by a 282kWh battery pack.

Both vehicles will take part in TruckShowX’s Drive Day program through which attendees will have the chance to experience an on-road ride in as many as 16 low- and zero-emissions vehicles – some as driver and others as passenger.

“It is incredible to see the enthusiastic support that all facets of HVIA’s membership base have for decarbonisation initiatives, and PACCAR’s initiatives are no exception,” says Adam Ritzinger, HVIA Chief Technical Officer and TruckShowX Program Manager.

“Giving TruckShowX attendees the opportunity to get behind the wheel of these vehicles is part of what the event is all about, and we are thrilled to be able to showcase what may be coming in the future from our local manufacturers.”

A spin-off of the hugely successful Brisbane Truck Show, TruckShowX will explore LZEVs and technologies, and unpack the interconnected ‘ecosystem’ of equipment, infrastructure, services, regulations, policies, and people that must exist for them to work as a solution.

The two-day event will feature keynote presentations from global leaders in LZEV adoption, supported by practical case studies of local operators leading the decarbonisation effort.

Complementing this will be an expo showcasing the latest LZEVs and related technologies and, uniquely, a drive-day opportunity to get behind the wheel of the latest LZEVs.
