Allison Transmission has launched eGen Power, which is Allison's new series of fully integrated zero-emission electric axles.
FREMONT, CA: Allison Transmission, a manufacturer of medium and heavy-duty fully automatic transmissions and a supplier of commercial vehicle propulsion solutions, is pleased to announce eGen Power's launch, which is Allison's new series of fully integrated zero-emission electric axles. It consists of an electric hybrid and fully electric propulsion systems.
The eGen Power product family will be the second product offered under the recently launched Allison eGen portfolio of the electric and electric hybrid propulsion solutions. Allison will introduce the eGen Power 100D, that is capable of a 23,000 lb GAWR, as the first electric axle variant in the eGen Power series of products. The eGen Power electric axles will be manufactured in Allison's currently accomplished 110,000 square foot electric axle development and manufacturing area in Auburn Hills, Michigan.
The eGen Power 100D is one of the most prevailing and entirely integrated e-axle systems in the world used for medium- and heavy-duty trucks. It has two electric motors that can generate 200 kW of constant power each, or 400 kW in total, with a peak combined power of 550 kW. The eGen Power 100D also assimilates a two-speed transmission into the central housing. The two-speed communication enables a high starting gradeability, top speed, and efficiency along with the optional differential lock. Such benefits transform to increased range capability or a decrease in battery pack size, enhancing the eGen Power electric axles' economic value.
"Hino Trucks and Allison Transmission have a long-standing partnership, as evidenced by our industry leading five-year powertrain warranty and Allison's standard position in all Hino conventional trucks," said Glenn Ellis, Senior Vice President of Customer Experience at Hino Trucks. "As we embark on our ZEV development program, Project Z, we are hopeful to incorporate Allison's eGen Power e-axle into our future product offering."
"Allison is continuing to build our electrification product portfolio under the Allison eGen brand, and we continue to advance those products through collaborative validation programs with leading truck original equipment manufacturers globally," said Branden Harbin, Managing Director of Global Marketing at Allison Transmission. "Our promise to our customers is to provide the most reliable and valued propulsion solutions in the world to enable our customers to work more efficiently. We plan to continue to be a propulsion solution provider of choice, regardless of power source or propulsion type."
