Allison Transmission, a designer and manufacturer of conventional and electrified vehicle propulsion systems for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, is preparing to launch eGen Power, its latest electric axle range for construction applications, such as tipper trucks, concrete mixers and heavy duty tractors.
eGen Power is a drop-in solution compatible with many existing truck chassis, featuring fully integrated electric motors, a two-speed gearbox, and an integrated oil cooler and pump. The unit is compatible with battery electric vehicles (BEV) and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV), as well as hybrid applications.
One version, the twin-motor eGen Power 130D, is a 13 tonne variant designed for the European and Asia Pacific markets, with a continuous output of 454 kilowatts and a peak output power of 652 kilowatts. The axle is designed for strong starting and climbing capabilities, high speed and efficiency, aiding the acceleration and manoeuvrability of such vehicles.
Other models in the range are the eGen Power 100D, a 10-tonne variant of the 130D; and the single motor, 10.4-tonne rated eGen Power 100S, with a continuous output of 227 kilowatts and a peak output of 326 kilowatts, suited for multiple medium- and heavy-duty applications.
The axles will be launched at Bauma 2022 (24-30 October in Munich, Germany, Hall A3, Stand 414), as well as the new TerraTran fully automatic transmission for tough off-road applications.
