Allison Expands eGen Power® Family of Electric Axles to Provide Additional Offering for European and Asia Pacific Markets
INDIANAPOLIS, September 20, 2022 – Allison Transmission, a leading designer and manufacturer of conventional, electric hybrid and fully electric vehicle propulsion solutions, announced the new eGen Power® 130S, the latest product
to be introduced to the company’s eGen Power family of fully electric axles, this week at IAA Transportation in Hanover, Germany.
Key components of the 130S including the new suspension systems, V-rod brackets, banjo housing, brakes, wheel ends and axle spindle were designed specifically to support the heavier 13-ton gross axle weight rating, which is often required by commercial
vehicles in Europe and Asia Pacific markets. The 130S uses a single motor to generate 225 kilowatts of continuous power, with a peak power of 325 kilowatts, and 26,000 newton meters of torque at the wheels. It also features a two-speed parallel axis
gear architecture, efficiently meeting application launch and highway cruise demands, while maximizing energy recovery through 100% regenerative braking capability. The 130S joins the eGen Power line-up of e-Axles, which includes the 100D, introduced
in 2020, as well as the 130D and 100S introduced in 2021.
“The introduction of the eGen Power 130S is representative of Allison’s global approach to electric vehicle propulsion. We understand that there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to electrification and a variety of products will
be needed to address the wide range of markets Allison serves,” said Heidi Schutte, Allison Transmission Vice President EMEA, APAC & South America Sales. “We are pleased to expand our eGen Power family of e-Axles once again in order
to deliver an additional electric propulsion solution for European and Asia Pacific markets.”
The eGen Power series of fully electric axles are modular and designed for installation and easy integration into existing vehicle chassis. Allison’s portfolio of e-Axle models has been developed to address the diverse needs of Allison’s customers
as they evaluate electric vehicle capabilities to meet the rigorous demands of the commercial vehicle market.
