Allison Transmission to supply Emergency One with electric axles

Allison Transmission and Emergency One have agreed to integrate the Allison eGen Power 100D electric axle into Emergency One’s fire rescue and emergency vehicle platform. This builds on a successful current relationship, under which 90% of the units Emergency One sells are equipped with an Allison automatic transmission.

The eGen Power 100D electric axle, the first in a new lineup of electric axles, integrates two high-speed electric motors and a multi-speed transmission, eliminating the need for additional drive shafts and support structures. This allows it to fit between the wheels, leaving space for battery storage. The e-axle delivers 536 hp (400 kW) of continuous power, with a peak output power of 738 hp (550 kW).

“We continue to expand our eGen Power portfolio in support of our promise to provide the most reliable and valued propulsion solutions in the world,” said Allison VP Heidi Schutte. “The Allison 3000 Series is the standard transmission offering in Emergency One’s conventional diesel-powered fire and rescue vehicles, so it’s natural to expect Emergency One and Allison to partner and bring the same proven performance, reliability and durability to Emergency One’s electric fire and rescue trucks.”
