7 – Long haulage hybrid HVO fueled ICE coach

Lead partner: IRIZAR


  1. To achieve a 12% energy savings (compared to i6s 2018 reference vehicle) – Use Case IRIZAR Hybridisation – by the optimisation of hybridisation (2.5%), smart electric hybrid control architecture (3.0%) (customized Hybrid Control Module [HCM]) and smart auxiliaries (2.5%) and 2% from innovative solutions for connected vehicle -infrastructure and Predictive Cruise Control, demonstrated in a full coach demonstrator. Further, a 2% due to the improvements in aerodynamic behaviour, due low air drag that IRIZAR is developing from other projects. No activities or budgetary needs are included in LONGRUN on the air drag reduction;
  2. To achieve 12% reduction of CO2 related to energy savings, apart from the use of HVO alternative fuel;
  3. To deliver the findings of ‘long haulage hybrid HVO fueled ICE coach’ to ’emission, energy management & thermal management framework’ for the definition of the inputs-outputs for VECTO adaptations.
