Electric startup Neuron EV recently unveiled its Neuron EV TORQ, the firm’s electric semi-truck that it says sets new standards in clean energy vehicles.
The TORQ is a “monumental” leap forward in transitioning trucks into the electric vehicle age, Neuron claimed.
“It fulfills the needs and expectations of a traditional semi-truck but without the harmful effects of a fossil fuel engine because of Neuron’s battery electric propulsion system,” the company stated.
TORQ was designed with the goal of eliminating greenhouse gas emissions and pioneering the development of a cleaner future for the commercial mobility industry.
TORQ is built on Neuron’s scalable chassis with interchangeable body components that easily attach and detach, enabling it to adjust functionality and expand cargo capacity.
The truck’s functional architecture also features an aerodynamic profile that has an integrated sleeper cabin, with a smooth and robust shell for silent operation, Neuron said.
The TORQ features a 360-degree position view through wireless cameras that feed data into the driver’s screen via application. This feature helps ensure the driver is aware of the vehicle’s position and surroundings from all angles, at all times.
The center driver seating allows for balanced visibility, optimized handling and an engaging driving experience, Neuron asserted.
The truck’s “intuitive” vehicle interface application provides full operation control and works on any personal device, which can be plugged into the interior architecture and replaces all physical componentry. This clutter-free and open system is compatible with the latest gadgets, internet solutions and transport management networks.
Neuron EV also addressed the plight of truck drivers who need comfortable resting quarters in their semis when going on long drives. The TORQ is equipped with a modern first-class cabin that’s suitable for driving and also conducive for resting and sleeping, the company maintained.
The rear sleeping area features cinematic entertainment with a surround sound system, abundant storage space, internet connectivity and a plush bed.
The cabin also is built with compatibility for future autonomous operation.
TORQ is a testament of performance fueled from heavy-duty electric powertrains, Neuron said. More importantly, electric vehicles now are mature enough to have longer range, being able to manage long drives on a single charge. They’re also more energy efficient, consuming less energy per mile.
Electric vehicles require less maintenance because electric motors contain only about half a dozen moving parts, as compared to the hundreds of working parts in internal combustion engines. Electric motor components over time have proven to be durable and simple to replace, the company said.
“Neuron envisions its Renewable Energy Plaza, or REP, as a comprehensive complex where users can get assistance for maintenance and battery exchange services,” the company added.
