Do you think an electric truck can beat a diesel on tractive force? Yes, we can! We like to play a fair game and give competition a head start. Running at 60% of our NOMINAL capacity, we match a diesel truck and outperform electric trucks by at least a factor 2, both running at full … Continue reading Boom. Let’s deliver on a promise!
Are you ready to see the Smesh-E-Axle spin? It sounds like music to our ears! This week we have performed some basic tests to ensure everything is OK. Electric motors √ Motor management √ Engaging gears √ Gear shifting from 1st to 8th and back √ Braking √ Cooling √ Our next step is a … Continue reading The sound of Smesh-E-Axle
How do you build a truly innovative powertrain for heavy-duty trucks? One that fits today’s electrification challenges? Watch the time lapse to see the construction process of the Smesh-E-Axle prototype. The powertrain is designed with efficiency as a starting point and fits completely in the rear axle of a semi truck, including fully integrated electric … Continue reading Smesh-E-Axle prototype ready!
The technology of the Smesh-E-Axle is very simple: an electric powertrain that is compact, has high energy efficiency and massive torque. With fully integrated #electricmotors and 8-speed transmission it enables the shortest possible path to deliver torque to the wheels. All energy goes one way: The right one.
Assembly of the world’s first 100% linear electric powertrain for heavy-duty trucks has begun at team member GTA site, and it’s going smoothly! For the Tech Lovers – lean back and take a closer look at first gear:• shock free shifting shifting under full load• SmeshGear transmission with 100% efficiency from 49 km/h• Higher efficiency, … Continue reading Smesh-E-Axle shifts to first gear!
