Allison unveils eGen Power electric axles
Allison Transmission’s eGen Power represents the company’s new series of fully integrated zero-emission electric axles.
The eGen Power 100D, capable of a Gross Axle Weight Rating of 23,000 lb., is the first electric axle in the lineup. It features two electric motors, each capable of generating 200 kW of continuous power, and they collectively boast 550 kW of peak combined power.
A two-speed transmission integrated into the central housing facilitates a high starting gradeability, top speed and efficiency, as well as an optional differential lock, Allison says, noting that efficiency can be used to increase range or reduce battery pack sizes.
It’s already been integrated into the Hino XL7 truck.
The news comes on the heels of the rollout of Allison’s eGen portfolio of fully electric and electric-hybrid propulsion systems.
