Oshkosh has chosen Allison Transmission to supply electric axles for North America’s first fully integrated, electric refuse collection vehicle.

The supplier’s eGen Power 100S will be used in the McNeilus Volterra ZSL electric refuse vehicle which is specifically designed for the waste management industry to minimise environmental impact and reduce noise.

“Following a deep technical and competitive evaluation process, Oshkosh chose the Allison eGen Power 100S because of the differentiated performance, packaging efficiency and Allison’s reputation for industry leading reliability and durability, as well as the established customer support network,” said Michael Moore, vice president of corporate engineering at Oshkosh.

Oshkosh recognised that the architecture efficiency advantage in heavy stop start refuse applications would extend the eRCV’s range.

Each vehicle will be built using two eGen Power 100S e-Axles in tandem configuration. A differential lock will be used for optimised traction.
