Preston Feight (DAF Trucks): ‘Not every powertrain is ideal for all tasks’
Keynote speech by Preston Feight (Chairman of the ACEA Commercial Vehicle Board and President of DAF Trucks) on the potential of the full range of powertrain options for commercial vehicles to contribute to further decarbonising road transport.
This speech was given at ACEA’s ‘Powertrain options for commercial vehicles’ conference on 29 November 2017.
The aim of the event was to explore the short-, mid- and long-term power choices for trucks, vans and buses. These can include conventional combustion engines running on diesel or petrol and alternative drives, fuelled by biofuels, natural gas and hydrogen, as well as electric and hybrid-electric technologies.
