USA – Drivetrain manufacturer, Cummins Inc of Columbus, Indiana launched its new generation X15 diesel engine, part of the Cummins HELM (Higher Efficiency, Lower Emissions, Multiple Fuels) platform*, at the World Truck Show in Indianapolis, Indiana earlier this month. Compliant with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB) 2027 regulations, this product will serve the on-highway heavy-duty segment in North America, going into series production in Q2 2024 in the Jamestown, New York factory, which is being upgraded to the tune of USD500m. The new 15-litre diesel engine offers a maximum output of 605 hp and 2,050 ft-lb peak torque, further optimising efficiency with its integration partners, Eaton and Meritor.

The first X15 was launched in 1998. Cummins has continually made gains in fuel efficiency which has lowered operating costs for the industry and decreased emissions. Furthermore, the new X15 is capable of using biodiesel blends up to 20% and renewable diesel blends up to 100%.
