AxleTech has entered into a strategic agreement with Agility Fuel Solutions, a provider of clean fuel solutions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles. The companies say they will combine their respective processes and technologies to deliver highly refined vehicle controls systems to develop an electric vehicle (EV) powertrain.

“The desire for electric powertrain solutions is growing rapidly in the commercial vehicle market, and AxleTech is ready to lead the way,” said Bill Gryzenia, chief executive officer of AxleTech. “Agility brings extensive experience to the table with their knowledge of integrating systems into trucks, their controls experience for commercial trucks, and their approach to battery packaging for the commercial vehicle market.”

“Agility is honored to work with AxleTech in this effort to meet the demand for electrification,” said Todd Sloan, Agility’s SVP of innovation and new business development. “AxleTech’s next-generation e-powertrain combined with their knowledge and proficiency in powertrain applications make them an ideal partner for strategically driving the commercial transportation industry.”

As part of this strategic alliance, Agility will contribute high-voltage, liquid-cooled, lithium-ion battery packs specifically engineered for the intensive demands of commercial vehicle applications. Modular in design, these batteries are the lightest and most compact liquid-cooled battery packs available for medium- and heavy-duty trucks. Complementing some of AxleTech’s electric powertrain solutions that fit within current chassis, suspension, and wheel end envelopes, Agility batteries are configurable to chassis requirements and contain external interface points designed to ease installation and service, the companies said.
