Driver comfort and safety

The world of transportation is changing under the need of moving goods in a
clean and intelligent way, and the increase of the E-commerce impact on our
society. GAUSSIN launches its new range of trucks and brings an answer today
to what will be the future of transportation. GAUSSIN trucks have been
developed around two major components:

–       The revolutionary intelligent modular skateboard powered by Hydrogen
or Batteries systems presented last April (Press release 27 April, 2021).

–       And a completely new cab concept designed by PININFARINA for driver
comfort and safety. The cab has also been designed to blend in with the
environment in a quiet and intelligent way.

This new design covers all the range of GAUSSIN range of trucks developed
thanks to the electric, hydrogen, autonomous ready Gaussin modular
•       Class 8 tractors 44 T (4×2, 6×4) with up to 1200 km combining
Electric and Hydrogen energy
•       Rigid trucks for clean and quiet distribution in the city areas
•       Rigid trucks for construction: cement trucks, tippers, etc…
•       Rigid trucks for waste management,  • and also the Gaussin H2 Racing

Pininfarina, leveraging on its solid experience in sustainable mobility, has
created a distinctive design identity for the new range of Gaussin trucks
able to enhance the main values of the products: performance and
sustainability. The result of the collaboration is a design language that
will give life to a full family of innovative trucks, setting a new standard
into the market.

« The cab has to be aligned with the new mobility needs. It must be the link
between the driver and his mission, between the truck and its environment.
It has to be clean, safe, friendly but also intelligent to perform at a high
level of efficiency… and it has to have a signature that lasts over time.
Pininfarina has not only designed a modern and great looking cab but has
created a transgenerational story. At Gaussin, we are of course working for
the performance of our customers but also for the planet and the next
generations. This is exactly why we have chosen to collaborate with
Pininfarina », says Christophe GAUSSIN, CEO of GAUSSIN.
