Istanbul, Turkey

Use Case 1 – Distribution Logistics 

Our Turkish pilot gives the first steps in upgrading the truck fleet in Istanbul from a diesel-based powertrain to an electric powertrain. 

Ford Otosan deploys a fully operational demonstrator truck on-road with internal facilities, driving for six months on urban and intercity roads. 

 

This pilot will address: 

  • Zero emissions in the urban and intercity area with the same service and performance as the current vehicles equipped with internal combustion engines
  • Equal or improved functionality than conventional vehicles regarding acceleration, braking, automatic control and electronic regulation
  • Intelligent thermal management reducing load and energy usage for climate control and battery cooling  
  • Reduction of noise and emissions in cities
  • DC charging
  • Tailored eco-routing strategies. 
  • Improved efficiency at the fleet level, with cloud-based, closed-loop vehicle communication that enables real-time mission, vehicle load and charge planning. 

 

Objectives

10% improvement in overall efficiency
