Bestemming IAA: Cummins debuteert voor het eerst sinds de overname met geëlektrificeerde Meritor-aandrijflijnen

COLUMBUS, Ind.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Voor het eerst sinds de afronding van de overname van Meritor, Inc. vorige maand, zal Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) Meritor’s 17Xe ePowertrain, gemonteerd met een Cummins-batterijsysteem, presenteren tijdens de IAA Transportation-beurs in Hanover, Duitsland. De 17Xe is ontworpen voor zware vrachtwagens in het 4×2- en 6×2-segment, met een capaciteit om 44 ton bruto gecombineerd gewicht te dragen, of meer in sommige toepassingen. De assemblage bevat ook een lithium-ijzerfosfaat (LFP) batterijpakket, een nieuwe toevoeging aan de batterijreeks van Cummins.

“We zijn vastbesloten om Cummins en Meritor elektrische aandrijflijnoplossingen zo snel mogelijk op de markt te brengen. We gaan samen sneller en staan te popelen om op IAA te praten over oplossingen die ons allemaal dichter bij het koolstofarm maken van onze industrie zullen brengen”, aldus Amy Davis, Vice President en President van New Power bij Cummins. “Cummins en Meritor brengen de beste, economisch meest haalbare koolstofarme aandrijflijnoplossingen in de branche samen die beter zijn voor mens en onze planeet.”

“We are committed to bringing Cummins and Meritor electrified powertrain solutions to market as quickly as possible. We are moving faster together and are eager to talk about solutions at IAA that will move us all closer to decarbonizing our industry,” said Amy Davis, Vice President and President of New Power at Cummins. “Cummins and Meritor bring together the industry’s best, most economically viable decarbonized powertrain solutions that are better for people and our planet.”

Meritor brings more than 100 years of experience in drivetrain, mobility, braking, aftermarket and electric powertrain solutions to Cummins. The integration of Meritor’s people, products and capabilities in axle and brake technology will position Cummins as a leading provider of integrated powertrain solutions across internal combustion and electric power applications.

With 100% zero-emissions ePowertrains already in production, the combined strength of Cummins and Meritor delivers advanced, decarbonized transport solutions for the commercial vehicle market.

Cummins is integrating Meritor’s ePowertrain with battery and fuel cell electric drivetrains to meet the growing demand for decarbonized solutions. Cummins’ market-leading suite of clean drivetrain options offers performance and packaging advantages to suit diverse applications across the globe, with significant benefits to heavy- and medium-duty truck and bus work cycles and ranges.

In addition to the ePowertrain, Meritor’s Power Control and Accessory System (PCAS) will be on the show floor. The PCAS is considered the “brains” of the electric powertrain and controls speed, acceleration, braking and thermal management. Through innovative software controls it can be configured to maximize performance and overall system efficiency. Its integrated system design also reduces packaging size and integration complexity.
