Tesla Semi is no longer needed! Geely showed an eco-friendly truck

Chinese Geely has developed a new truck with a very difficult to pronounce name Remote Xinghan (Xinhang) H, according to mydrivers.com. However, it will also have a more euphonious name Homtruck, which is intended for export markets.

The car has received a futuristic design that fully corresponds to modern ideas about the trucks of the future. Moreover, the exterior looks much more spectacular than that of the same Tesla Semi. A similar spirit persists in the interior of the truck. Here you can see an unusual steering wheel, the likes of which are now often used in all sorts of supercars. You can also pay attention to the huge display that stretches across the entire front panel. In addition, we must not forget that modern trends require manufacturers to use “environmentally friendly” materials, therefore recycled products are widely used in the salon.

But the main feature will not be the memorable appearance, but the power plant. More precisely, the power plants, of which there are already three planned. The consumer will be able to choose between a hybrid, an electric, and – suddenly – a methanol version! And the last variation is the most interesting. The choice of exotic fuel is by no means accidental. As the developers assure, it is somewhat more environmentally friendly than traditional gasoline and diesel. What’s more, running a truck on methanol will save 18 to 22 percent a year in fuel costs. If such commercial vehicles become popular in China, crude oil imports could be cut from 73% to 50%.

Manufactured by Homtruck will be Geely’s commercial sub-brand Farizon Auto. You may know this brand from the rather lurid FX pickup, based on the Geely Atlas Pro crossover. However, the backbone of the business remains large and small trucks. Pre-orders for the Homtruck have already started, but the model will not go into full production until 2024.

    Although it is definitely an unfinished replica, I would be interested in contact details, anyway. Maybe this could be an interesting project.
