Dana and Lonestar Specialty Vehicles launch fully electrified terminal tractor

Dana Inc., in collaboration with Lonestar Specialty Vehicles, has announced the launch of a fully electrified terminal tractor. The new Spicer Electrified e-Powertrain system is designed and manufactured by Dana as a complete electric powertrain solution for use on vehicles built by Lonestar SV.

Lonestar SV specializes in the final stage assembly and refurbishment of commercial vehicles, and other innovative vehicle application solutions. Dana’s e-Powertrain system can be adapted by Lonestar SV into a vehicle with a non-powered rolling chassis, or existing vehicles with diesel engines can be converted into all-electric trucks.

The solution can be used to extend the useful life of a fleet’s capital investment by repowering and refurbishing an existing chassis. It also allows for recycling of a chassis for further carbon footprint reduction.

The powertrain provided by Dana includes the motor, inverter, power electronics cradle, and battery systems. The collaboration also includes full vehicle integration education and training from the Dana team, allowing Lonestar SV to complete the vehicle integration in-house.

The vehicle has a gross combination weight rating (GCWR) of 80,000 or 101,000 lbs., and is offered in 4×2, 6×2, and 6×4 configurations. The electrified system can be customized to meet individual range requirements. The Lonestar SV T22 and S22 models allow for 22 hours of continuous operation with only two hours required for a full battery recharge. The T12 and S12 models allow for 12 hours of continuous operation and are equipped with DC fast-charging capability.

Dana also announced two electric powertrain partnerships with truck OEMs; you can read more of that news here.
