AxleTech to supply a heavy-duty e-powertrain system
Thor Vehicles, which works on all-electric semi-trailers and vans, engaged in a brand new undertaking with AxleTech to develop a heavy-duty e-powertrain system.
The thought is to mix AxleTech’s e-axles with Thor’s proprietary battery packs, which as we perceive would allow it to supply full programs for car producers.
The joint e-powertrain providing is to be launched in 2019.
“AxleTech offers built-in options for on-highway electrical autos, together with Class 6, 7, and eight vans, in addition to transit functions.
