Farizon Auto, a new energy commercial vehicle brand that was established by Geely Holding Group, has launched three new energy products as part of its new Farizon G Truck Product Series. These products include the Farizon G pure electric heavy truck, Farizon G methanol hybrid heavy truck and Farizon G reformed methanol fuel cell heavy truck.
The trucks are based on Farizon’s GXA-T architecture, a new vehicle architecture for new energy heavy trucks. Vehicles based on the GXA-T architecture will possess a more intelligent computer system, which enables energy management, route planning and smart capacity allocation capability. Based on the GXA-T architecture, the Farizon G Series will be able to utilize a variety of powertrains to suit a diverse range of logistics operating requirements.
The Farizon G pure electric heavy truck uses Farizon’s i-MPS central drive train. The Farizon G methanol hybrid heavy truck, with a range of over 1,500 km, is designed for long-haul logistics.
“Having already sold 150,000 new energy commercial vehicles, Farizon is working toward our next 150,000 vehicles through continued technology and business model innovation. In the next five years, we will strive to become the first brand with 1,000,000 new energy commercial vehicle sold," said Fan Xianjun, CEO, Farizon New Energy Commercial Vehicle Group.Farizon further announced that the production version of its next generation new energy semi-truck, Farizon “Homtruck”, is expected to be unveiled in August. In 2021, Farizon released the concept of the “Homtruck”, with production and first deliveries planned for early 2024.
“Commercial vehicle is essential to the sustainable development of the world. When we design a vehicle, we want it to be long-lasting. This is the simplest way of bearing our responsibility to the environment. While our engineers focused on finding the best powertrains and the lightest chassis, we studied the best aerodynamics solution, allowing us to improve vehicle performance and provide the greatest efficiency," said Hervé Bertrand, vice president and design director, Farizon New Energy Commercial Vehicle Group.
