Allison launches electric axles for medium, heavy duty CVs

Oct. 12, 2020
eGen Power is the second product offering under the Allison eGen brand of fully electric and electric hybrid propulsion solutions.

Allison Transmission has launched eGen Power, the global manufacturer’s new series of fully integrated zero emission electric axles.

The eGen Power product family will be the second product offering under the recently announced Allison eGen portfolio of fully electric and electric hybrid propulsion solutions. Allison will launch the eGen Power 100D, capable of a 23,000 lb GAWR, as the first electric axle variant within the eGen Power series of products. eGen Power electric axles will be manufactured in Allison’s recently completed 110,000 square foot electric axle development and manufacturing facility in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

“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.”

The eGen Power 100D is one of the most powerful and fully integrated e-axle systems in the world for medium and heavy duty trucks. It features two electric motors capable of generating 200 kW of continuous power each, or 400 kW in total, with a peak combined power of 550 kW.

The eGen Power 100D also integrates a two-speed transmission into the central housing, according to Allison. The two-speed transmission facilitates a high starting gradeability, top speed, and efficiency as well as an optional differential lock. This efficiency advantage translates to increased range capability or a reduction in battery pack size, optimizing the economic value the eGen Power electric axles deliver.

These advantages are why Hino Trucks and Hexagon Purus chose to integrate the Allison eGen Power 100D into the Hino XL7 truck most recently showcased during the October 5 “Project Z” zero emission vehicle development program announcement by Hino Trucks, the company said.

“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.”
