AxleTech & Wrightspeed E-axle

Overview
AxleTech & Wrightspeed E-axle

AxleTech partnered with Wrightspeed on a custom axle incorporating Wrightspeed's proprietary GTD™ Power Unit (Geared Traction Drive), which delivers greater power to the wheels through a quiet electric motor. Wrightspeed’s complete powertrain system features regenerative braking and a range-extending turbine generator, the Fulcrum™, which enables heavy-duty electric vehicles to operate as efficiently as possible. The custom AxleTech-Wrightspeed solution is suitable for on-highway applications, including class 8 refuse collection trucks and class 7 transit buses.
