Dana introduces Spicer Electrified e-Transmissions for commercial vehicles

Dana says the powertrain accommodates a diverse range of medium-duty applications, such as straight trucks, walk-in vans, refuse trucks, utility trucks and platform trucks.

Dana recently announced an expansion of its Spicer Electrified e-Powertrain offerings to include an offering of e-Transmissions for a variety of medium-duty EV applications. The technology will launch on a global electric vehicle platform in early 2024, Dana says.

Spicer Electrified Zero-6 e-Transmissions are suited ideally for central drive e-Propulsion system with a conventional axle and driveshaft layout. The powertrain is said to accommodate a diverse range of medium-duty applications, such as straight trucks, walk-in vans, refuse trucks, utility trucks, platform trucks, and more.

Dana said that the new e-Transmissions have been engineered to provide the highest level of efficiency and performance with maximum startability, gradeability, and road speed.

The company says that other features include:

  • Dana motor and integrated inverter system, with silicon carbide technology and MOSFET power modules, providing simplified installation in the vehicle through the elimination of high-voltage phase cables;
  • An electromechanical actuation system, with patented Dana Graziano clutch design, to maximize shift efficiency;
  • A three-speed system with Ravigneaux gearing designed to seamlessly integrate Dana motor technology, offering maximum power density and productivity without compromise across a wide range of vehicles; and
  • Dana OpenECU platform, leveraged across all Dana e-Propulsion technologies, to deliver control software, functional safety readiness up to ASIL C, and compliance with the latest vehicle cybersecurity engineering standard ISO/SAE 21434 and the UNR 155/156 regulations.

Accommodating a gross vehicle weight rating up to 59,500 lbs., the Zero-6 eTransmission series will be available in two models, the eS4700t and the eS7900t, offering 4,700 and 7,900 Nm of output torque, the company notes.

Daimler-Linde-liquid-hydrogen-refueling-3

Daimler Truck and Linde Engineering recently announced subcooled liquid hydrogen (sLH2), a jointly developed refueling technology. According to the companies, sLH2 allows for higher storage density, greater range, faster refueling, lower costs and superior energy efficiency over gaseous hydrogen.

Daimler and Linde say the new sLH2 pump slightly increases the pressure of the liquid hydrogen, allowing a 40-ton heavy-duty truck to fill up with 175 lbs. of liquid hydrogen in about ten to fifteen minutes, supplying a range of more than 630 miles. At the same time, the companies claim the required investment for sLH2 hydrogen refueling stations are two to three times lower, and operational costs are five to six times lower.
