Allison Transmission announced that it was selected by Oshkosh Corp. as its electric axle supplier for a new fully integrated, zero-emission electric refuse collection vehicle. The Allison eGen Power 100S has been successfully integrated into the McNeilus Volterra ZSL electric refuse vehicle, the company said.
Oshkosh said it recognized the eGen Power 100S architecture efficiency advantage in heavy stop-start refuse applications would extend the eRCV’s range. Each vehicle will be built using two eGen Power 100S e-Axles in tandem configuration, while delivering cleaner air and quieter operation in communities where deployed. A differential lock will be utilized for optimized traction.
“Following a deep technical and competitive evaluation process, Oshkosh chose the Allison eGen Power 100S because of the differentiated performance, packaging efficiency and Allison’s reputation for industry leading reliability and durability, as well as the established customer support network Allison offers our mutual customers,” said Michael Moore, vice president of corporate engineering at Oshkosh.
