Everything changes when you let go of the idea of a powertrain as you have known it for the past 100 years.
Meet the new standard for heavy-duty e-Truck powertrains.
The transport sector is challenged to reduce their CO2, nitrogen and sound emissions. Transporters are looking to replace conventional diesel vehicles with sustainable alternatives that are affordable and deployable.
Did you know that in practise at least 50% of vehicle related costs are energy costs?
And that over 60% of this energy is lost in the powertrain of a diesel truck, before it even reaches the wheels?
Fortunately, electric motors have an energy efficiency of close to 100%.
Nevertheless, today’s ‘sustainable’ trucks do not operate more energy efficient than Diesel trucks.
Today’s electrification methods lead to high vehicle weight, excess motor power and the inability to deliver real performance.
That is the reason why we are developing a compact electric powertrain that makes heavy-duty trucks very efficient and powerful.
This only becomes possible by placing the entire drive in one straight line and fully integrate motors and gears in the rear axle.
Our revolutionary class-8 truck ePowertrain is developed with efficiency as a starting point. A world first, and the patent is pending.
Thanks to the patented SmeshGear technology, the available power is used in the most efficient way and loaded under nominal power only. This starts of a chain reaction of mutually reinforcing benefits.
All energy goes one way:
The right one.
Smesh-E-Axle is the solid base making it technically and economically feasible to electrify heavy-duty trucks in a sustainable way, regardless of which energy carrier is used.
