EDumper: World’s Largest Electric Vehicle Never Has To Be Recharged

Posted by in categories: energy, transportation

This 45-ton dump truck ascends a 13-percent grade and can take on 65 tons while doing so.

As the heavy transport descends with more than double the weight, the trucks regenerative braking system recaptures all the energy it will need to refill the charge that it will need to use on the way back up again. Regenerative braking allows the eDumper to produce more energy downhill than it consumes uphill.”

The eDumper is the world’s largest electric vehicle but it generates more energy than it uses so it never needs charging.
