Allison is committed to manufacturing solutions that will have a positive impact on the environment. In the past three years alone, Allison has invested approximately $ 250 million in innovation to advance hybrid electric and all-electric propulsion technology. Allison’s Legacy H 40/50 EP ™ Hybrid Electric Propulsion System Helped Customers Save 305 Million Gallons of Fuel and Over 3.4 Million Metric Tons of CO2. Last year Allison took their proven H 40/50 EP electric hybrid to the next level and introduced the eGen FlexTM hybrid electric propulsion system for transit buses. The Allison eGen FlexTM provides revolutionary capabilities to reduce carbon footprint and support up to 10 miles of full electric range. The eGen Flex can operate accessories such as air conditioning and electric heat at their optimum efficiency with a clean and quiet power supply. It also eliminates emissions and engine noise when loading and unloading passengers, in dense pedestrian areas and in zero emission zones and bus depots, reducing fuel consumption and CO.2 emissions.
Additionally, Allison recently introduced the eGen PowerTM fully integrated electric axle series. Designed to replace traditional transmission systems, the electric axle features two high-speed electric motors and a multi-speed transmission, eliminating the need for additional drive shafts and support structures. The eGen Power 130D is one of the most powerful propulsion solutions in its class, with an architecture designed for high gradability and high top speed without sacrificing efficiency. This reliable technology will allow customers to take a critical next step on their path to full electrification.
The company is committed to doing its part by making donations to our local community like the American Lung Association, focusing on employee well-being, and continuously innovating to reduce air emissions.
