ZF Introduces New Technologies for Clean and Efficient Commercial Vehicles
One third of the Class 4-8 commercial vehicle market in the U.S. and Canada will migrate to battery-electric solutions in the next 10 years, according to a recent study by ACT Research*. ZF boasts an unmatched product portfolio that addresses the industry’s need for clean and efficient technology of conventional and electrified vehicles. ZF is showcasing these solutions at the 2021 Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo, Aug. 30-Sept. 2 in Long Beach, California.
“With the successful integration of WABCO, ZF offers our customers an unparalleled level of eMobility systems expertise that will help the industry meet its goals for a clean and efficient future,” said Christian Feldhaus, Director Commercial Vehicle Driveline Technology North America, ZF. “We are committed to innovate and expand solutions for the North American commercial vehicle market as it moves toward electrification and the Next Generation of Mobility.”
ZF Product Portfolio Offers a Gateway to the Future
ZF’s product portfolio, including the AxTrax electric axle and the CeTrax electric central drive, supports OEs greenhouse gas (GHG) challenges. “We are nearing 1 million miles of real-world experience with AxTrax on the Freightliner eCascadia with tremendous results,” Feldhaus explained. “We’re pleased to announce that by 2023, ZF will progressively launch a complete modular next generation of electric drives, with axle and central drives for pickups, trucks and buses of up to 100,000 lbs. – and a major North American OE will launch in the same year”. ZF’s all-new electric drives will offer up to 360kW continuous power for battery electric or fuel cell electric vehicles.
PowerLine Paving the Way to Clean and Efficient Mobility
As a near-term technology evolution, ZF announced in February that it is investing $200 million in North American commercial vehicle transmission manufacturing at its South Carolina transmission facility. Multiple North American customers have signed multi-year contracts and while U.S. production will begin in 2023, PowerLine is on U.S. roads today. “While eMobility is presenting itself at a fast pace, conventional automatic transmissions should not be overlooked as they continue to play a significant role supporting OEs to meet GHG targets for the next decades,” Feldhaus said. “PowerLine can help generate fuel savings of more than 10 percent and is package protected for mild hybrid electric vehicle (MHEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) platforms, supporting the industry transformation to a fully electrified future.” The efficiency of PowerLine is being proven in everyday operation by North American fleets.
In addition to ZF advanced driveline solutions, whether automatic transmissions or ZF’s full eDrive portfolio, ZF also offers electric power steering, advanced air management and braking system technology – making ZF the most capable system integration partner – creating synergies and developing technologies that electrify commercial vehicle systems.
