“We’re proud to partner with Allison to integrate the eGen Power 85S into the Novo VOLT to provide a new bus in our portfolio that will deliver zero emissions and reduce noise levels,” said Tuğrul Arıkan, General Manager of Anadolu Isuzu. “We are very pleased with Allison’s ability to provide an e-Axle that meets the unique requirements of our midi bus platform and is easily integrated into the existing vehicle chassis.”
Allison’s collaboration with Anadolu Isuzu marks the first time an eGen Power e-Axle will be integrated into a midi bus application, expanding the family of fully electric axles into a new market segment. The eGen Power 85S was specifically developed to address the needs of midi bus and small truck applications requiring a lower 8.5T gross axle weight rating (GAWR), with a narrower track width, smaller spindle and new stamped axle housing, as compared to existing eGen Power models.
“The introduction of the eGen Power 85S is the latest example of Allison’s commitment to expanding our propulsion solution portfolio to meet the demands of the wide range of applications and market segments we serve,” said Heidi Schutte, Allison Transmission Vice President EMEA, APAC & South America Sales. “Our family of e-Axles has been developed to support Allison’s customers as they develop electric vehicle capabilities and adopt technologies that will guide them into the future of the commercial vehicle industry.”
