DRIVING TO EUROPE: FOTON iBlue EV Truck Obtained EU WVTA Certificate
BEIJING, July 29, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

On July 26, FOTON iBlue EV truck was granted a European Whole Vehicle Type 
Approval certificate (WVTA) by Germany's TÜV Rheinland, a leading independent 
third-party testing, inspection and certification organization, also one of the 
designated technical services for WVTA.

It means that FOTON iBlue EV Truck fully meets the high standards of EU 
regulation, could therefore be exported to EU and non-EU countries and regions 
that require WVTA certification. This is also FOTON's first EU electric vehicle 
type approval certificate for trucks.

EU WVTA certificate, as an "access card" for automotive products to enter the 
EU market, is accepted throughout the EU without the need for further testing 
until a directive is updated or your design changes.

FOTON iBlue truck has passed through more than 30 items test for the WVTA 
certificate such as EMC, electric safety specification, NVH, lane departure 
warning and advanced emergency braking.

It uses the high-capacity, high-energy density power battery from CATL which is 
the world's largest battery company, and PMSM (Permanent Magnet Synchronous 
Motor). It has the ability to fully meet the technical requirements for 
0-30km/h starting acceleration, 30-50km/h overtaking acceleration and hill 
start capability, and has an advanced braking energy recovery strategy and ECO 
driving mode to adapt to different driving conditions and provide higher 
efficiency and 10% longer range. The complete vehicle is subjected to a 
rigorous test on battery, motor and electronic control system and more than 800 
static inspections. The range fade rate is less than or equal to 35% at low 
temperature and its strong adaptability to environment also improves the 
vehicle's operational efficiency. And with 100,000 km of endurance testing 
completed, the safety of the complete vehicle is also guaranteed.

In addition to E-trucks, FOTON's full electric buses were also reported to have 
been certified by the WVTA and had been put into operation in New Zealand in 
April this year. As the world enters into low-carbon development, FOTON has 
also launched full electric and hydrogen fuel products, which have been 
deployed in national bus systems, school bus fleets, and airport shuttle fleet 
around the world. The success of the WVTA certification for FOTON iBlue EV 
truck signifies that FOTON has got the access to the most demanding European
