Hino begins testing Allison fully electric axles

Hino is looking to roll out the new battery electric heavy-duty vehicles soon

Hino Trucks is commencing the testing and validating of Allison Transmission’s next generation fully electric axle.

The new axle technology, named the eGen Power 100D, is part of Allison’s XL series of heavy duty battery electric vehicles.

Hino is progressing towards the start of production after completing the vehicle integration and commencing testing and validating on the new electric axle.

“When evaluating the electric axles available in today’s competitive market, Hino selected the Allison eGen Power 100D due to its benefits, including electromechanical sophistication, a next generation controls system and industry-leading packaging,” Hino customer experience VP Glenn Ellis says.

“Allison continues to be a true partner throughout the vehicle validation and development process and we appreciate their willingness to adapt and refine the e-Axle to meet our needs.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Allison to bring Hino’s new fully-electric heavy duty trucks to market.”

Allison and Hino will jointly host a select group of customers for a ride and drive of the eGen Power 100D-equipped Hino XL battery electric tractor at Allison’s global headquarters.

The new fully integrated electric axle from Allison features two electric motors and integrates a two-speed gearbox within the central housing to enable the high torque required to get heavy loads moving.

Allison’s global network of distributors and dealers allows Hino and its customers access to training, service and aftermarket support needed to keep its vehicles running smoothly.
