Tresa Motors introduces VO.2 of its Electric Truck

Tresa Motors, India’s first OEM of medium and heavy electric trucks, unveiled the VO.2 model yesterday. With VO.2, Tresa is slated to test India’s first and global  Centralised Computing Unit, Advanced Telemetry System, 800V (peak) modular battery packs with in-house BMS, new central steering system, in-house designed DRLs, and its first version of Heat Pump (for all cooling requirements including cabin air-conditioning). 

Most modern vehicles, including EVs, use multiple (sometimes 100s) ECUs to control their sub-systems. Tresa is integrating these ECUs with its zonal architecture, where its NVIDIA GPU-driven Centralised Computing Unit takes most of the load. Tresa’s CCU is designed to take the load of the majority of its control, AI, and telematics requirements. The telematics systems will stream over 500 monitoring points to the cloud for constant performance, safety, and efficiency analytics. 

Tresa’s VO.2 stands out as an eco-friendly logistics solution, designed to be durable, resilient, and reliable for Indian road conditions, the company claims. The company aims to offer a 'compelling' cost advantage per mile over traditional diesel trucks, the press release noted.

Rohan Shravan, Founding CEO, of Tresa Motors commented, “We are excited to announce the launch of Model VO.2.Built on our `Delta-Engineering` philosophy, VO.2 is a major internal release where we get to test and monitor all of our components on the road. This is also where we feel that we can optimise our heat pump and make it our key IP along with our motor and battery. “

The latest VO.2 truck features a new central steering setup and a comfortable air-suspended seat with customisable body options. This powerhouse boasts a maximum torque of 24000Nm, reaching a top speed of 120kmph. Equipped with a 300KWH battery, the VO.2 offers a quick 20-minute charge time (10-80% SOC), ensuring efficiency on the go.

Tresa Motors’ futuristic electric trucks are built on the Axial Flux Motor Platform Flux 350, and World's first 800V 50 kWh truly immersive self-contained battery pack module - Meg50. The Flux 350 motor’s design and engineering offer higher power density, improved cooling capabilities, increased efficiency, a compact size, and flexibility. The Meg50 comes in IP69 self-contained enclosures with embedded active-liquid cooling. The Meg50 module enables customisation with various ranges depending upon the payload, offering cost flexibility to the customer.
