Vehicle Electrification + Environmental Test Center

 

Get to Market Faster

The Allison Vehicle Electrification + Environmental Test (VE+ET) Center is an industry-leading facility that allows OEMs, body builders, suppliers and end-users to satisfy their medium- and heavy-duty vehicle testing needs in a single, environment-controlled location year-round.

Customers are now facing increasing system complexity, expanding regulatory requirements and higher demand for ever-faster time-to-market requirements. Allison has you covered. The VE+ET’s one-stop chassis testing can shorten your product development cycles dramatically, facilitating efficiency and ultimately cutting down the costs of bringing your product to market. The VE+ET provides vehicle system development and validation in repeatable, reliable and seasonally independent conditions to get the test results you require.

Results That Matter

The VE+ET’s highly controlled environment enables an enhanced level of virtual product development, driving lower costs. Results from the VE+ET are ideal for developing sophisticated, highly correlated simulations and models so design decisions happen early in the cycle, before prototype hardware investments.

Test Confidently

The VE+ET is secured, operated and managed independently from Allison Transmission, Inc. keeping customer IP, data and property secure and confidential.

Our Export Compliance Program is robust and comprehensive, ensuring that our military customer’s export controlled technology is safeguarded.
