Cummins debuting electrified Meritor powertrains with Cummins LFP battery system


For the primary time since finalizing the acquisition of Meritor final month (earlier publish), Cummins will showcase Meritor’s 17Xe ePowertrain assembled with a Cummins battery system through the IAA Transportation tradeshow in Hannover, Germany. The 17Xe is designed for heavy-duty vans within the 4×2 and 6×2 section, with capability to help 44 tons of gross mixed weight, or extra in some purposes.

The meeting additionally incorporates a lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery pack, a brand new arrival to Cummins’ battery line-up.

Cummins is integrating Meritor’s ePowertrain with battery and gas cell electrical drivetrains to satisfy the rising demand for decarbonized options. Cummins’ suite of unpolluted drivetrain choices presents efficiency and packaging benefits to go well with numerous purposes throughout the globe, with vital advantages to heavy- and medium-duty truck and bus work cycles and ranges.

Along with the ePowertrain, Meritor’s Energy Management and Accent System (PCAS) will likely be on the present flooring. The PCAS is the “brains” of the electrical powertrain and controls pace, acceleration, braking and thermal administration. By means of progressive software program controls it may be configured to maximise efficiency and total system effectivity. Its built-in system design additionally reduces packaging dimension and integration complexity.
