A zero-emissions tractor with full battery electric power aims to help ports be environmentally friendly and reduce costs.

The class 7 (or baby eight) demonstration Urban Hauler Day Cab tractor has a Cummins integrated electrified powertrain and is designed to be used for urban delivery operations, port drayage and terminal container handling.

Cummins, which also inspired the design of the tractor, stated: "Ultimately, Cummins will help its customers select the best technology to meet their specific duty cycle and drive cycle needs.

One-hour battery charge

Built by Roush, the tractor weighs 18,000 pounds and uses regenerative braking and rolling resistance.

It can achieve over 30 miles per gallon (diesel equivalent) and carry up to 44,000 pounds of payload, while its 140kWh battery takes just an hour to charge at a charging station.

A longer range is available with different configurations

Cummins added: “Our broad portfolio of power solutions includes diesel, natural gas and other fuel products, and in the near future, fully electric products. Energy diversity is important to our customers and the environment."
