Service: XTRA Lease Indianapolis relocates to new facility near I-74￼
Dana Inc. announced that it will begin production of its eS9000r e-Axle–the first in a line of Spicer Electrified Zero-6 e-Axles to support the market launch of the Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. (FCCC) all-electric MT50e medium-duty last-mile delivery vehicle. Designed with a custom Spicer S130 rear drive axle, the propulsion system for the MT50e application is engineered as a fully integrated e-Axle, including a gearbox and motor, providing up to 240 kW of power to support the vehicle’s driving range of up to 170 miles, the manufacturer noted.
The Zero-6 e-Axles efficiently integrate into the all-electric FCCC MT50e chassis, streamlining the e-Propulsion system that is designed with full-charge capability in about three hours using DC fast charging. Also included in the design of the e-Axle is Dana’s patented, electronically controlled parking pawl system.
