From March 10th to 14th at Conexpo in Las Vegas, visitors can see the new engine on
the Brand’s stand (Bronze Lot, B7700). With this hybrid version, FPT Industrial takes a
step further into a modular and multi-power powertrain approach.
The 2.8-liter hybrid engine was developed to offer the ideal performance for compact
machinery offering enhanced productivity and improved efficiency. With four in-line
cylinders, the thermal engine delivers a maximum power of 74 hp, while the electric
motor adds 27 hp of continuous power and 40 hp of peak power. Light construction
machines such as skid steer loaders, drum rollers and backhoe loaders benefit from
the peak power at certain times to complete their missions more efficiently.
The F28 Hybrid combines high performance and low fuel consumption in a compact
packaging. It also features enhanced system efficiency, simple architecture, fast operation,
and optimized Start & Stop for a smoother engine start.
The integration of the engine’s hybrid architecture is based on FPT Industrial’s proprietary
control software, reinforcing the Brand’s role as a full system integrator.
“Our vision for the powertrains of the future includes some of the main features of the
new F28 Hybrid,” said Pierpaolo Biffali, Vice President of Product Engineering at
FPT Industrial. “This engine highlights our commitment to alternative propulsion and
demonstrates our engineering abilities with its efficiency and compactness
