This builds on the successful relationship between the two companies where the majority of automatic equipped trucks SAIC Hongyan sells have Allison’s automatic transmissions.

“We are pleased to formalise our collaboration with Allison Transmission on the integration of their eGen Power electric axles into our next generation platforms,” said Liu Bin, deputy director of technical centre at SAIC Hongyan, which will be the first Chinese OEM to integrate the eGen Power 130D electric axle into its trucks. It is specifically designed to accommodate vehicles that require a 13-tonne rated axle. This series of fully integrated electric axles replaces the traditional powertrain and features two high-speed electric motors and a multi-speed gearbox for exceptional performance and optimised efficiency.

With a continuous power of 424 kilowatts (569 horsepower) and peak output power of 648 kilowatts (869 horsepower), the eGen Power 130D is among the most powerful propulsion axles in its class and uses Allison’s proven control hardware and software expertise, plus decades of design, validation and manufacturing experience. The result is claimed world class reliability, durability and performance.
