Everything changes when you let go of the idea of a powertrain as you have known it for the past 100 years.
The transport sector is challenged to reduce their CO2, nitrogen and sound emissions. To make the switch from diesel to sustainable energy carriers, entrepreneurs are looking for trucks that are profitable and practical to use.
Did you know that in practise at least 70% of the energy is lost in the powertrain of a diesel truck, before it even reaches the wheels?
And that today’s ‘sustainable’ trucks do not operate more energy efficient than Diesel trucks?
Despite the fact that the energy efficiency of electric motors approaches 100%, the current way of electrifying leads to excessive energy consumption 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 sets off 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.
