ummins Inc. has unveiled its new fuel-agnostic X Series platform with hydrogen, biogas and advanced diesel engines offering low-to-zero carbon fuel capability. The next generation 15-litre and 10-litre displacement X Series is designed to accelerate the decarbonization of heavy-duty, long-haul truck fleets while able to meet proposed ultra-low emission levels, including Euro VII regulations expected to take effect in 2027.
“With Cummins all-new X Series platform, we are taking the internal combustion engine to a next generation level, capable of meeting future ultra-low emission standards together with a low-to-zero carbon fuel capability to help put fleets on a lower cost path to decarbonisation,”
said Alison Trueblood, Cummins Executive Director.
The fuel-agnostic architecture of the 15-litre X Series utilises a common base engine with cylinder heads and fuel systems specifically tailored for the X15H to use carbon-free hydrogen and for the X15N to use biogas with up to 90 percent carbon reduction. With X15H ratings up to 530 hp (395 kW) and X15N ratings up to 510 hp (380 kW), the X15 advanced diesel can use either sustainable HVO fuel or B100 biodiesel with ratings up to 650 hp (485 kW) for the most demanding duty-cycles.
