Allison Transmission will put on display its range of e-axles for municipal and refuse trucks at the IFAT exhibition, soon to come in Munich from May 30 to June 3. Allison, which has been recently involved in a very interesting and innovative project dealing with the Scottish city of Aberdeen, will be showcasing its new electric axles, Allison eGen Power, as well as a broad range of fully automatic transmissions for traditional and alternative fuel powertrains.
The latest e-axles from Allison Transmission
eGen Power is designed to fit between the wheels of heavy-duty trucks, replacing the vehicle’s traditional powertrain system. It is a bolt-in solution compatible with the current vehicle frame, suspension and wheel ends, and well suited to most OEM vehicle assembly processes. eGen Power features fully integrated electric motors, a multi-speed gearbox, oil cooler and pump and is compatible with full battery electric vehicles (BEV) and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) as well as hybrid applications. The technology is designed for 100% of motor torque in regenerative braking.
In addition, a cutaway model of the 3000 xFE fully automatic transmission will be on display at IFAT, featuring the latest fuel-saving software, Allison’s FuelSense 2.0 with DynActive Shifting. At the heart of this technology is an algorithm that continually assesses driving conditions – taking into account factors such as vehicle weight, road gradient, the frequency of stop-starts and throttle use – to initiate subtle but significant alterations in gear shift points.
