"We've now been able to cement an even stronger relationship so we can partner on whatever
future technologies exist with respect to the
electric axle, motors, inverters, and other electric
components," Healy says.
In addition to Hyliion's hybrid solution, Dana
manufactures e-Axles for fully electric vehicles.
Dana is currently working with leading truck
manufacturers on future projects to incorporate
Dana e-Axles into their own
electric and hybrid solutions.

Integrated electric axles can offer additional
benefits for fleets.
"One limitation with a conventional drive
axle is that you can probably go up to the low
7:1 ratio, and then you can't incorporate much
more high-numerical gearing," Trost points out.
"With an integrated approach, you have more
flexibility on ratio choices, which leads to the
benefit of being able to select a more optimized

motor and inverter. So improved efficiency is an
immediate benefit. Then, because of the smaller
motor, there is the benefit of reduced weight."
For fleets that still are a little skittish about
relying solely on battery power, Hyliion's Healy
says hybridization is a good option - especially
for long-haul trucks.
"For Class 8 long-haul trucking, you're putting
tremendous amounts of miles on every year,"

Integrated
electric axles
can offer
additional
benefits
for fleets.
Do electric axles
make sense
for fleets?
When a vehicle goes fully
electric, it consumes zero fuel
and produces zero emissions.
Even when moving to a hybrid
solution such as Hyliion's,
fleets can realize significant
environmental and cost
savings. Dana provides a Total
Cost of Ownership Calculator
to help fleets understand the
financial benefits of electrification. Fleets can check
it out at apps.dana.com/
commercial-vehicles/tco.
Dana's Trost says fleets can
also enjoy efficiency gains as
a result of an electric axle
configuration.
"On the classic Class 8
tractor-trailer, there is a 6x4
drive axle, meaning that both
rear axles are driving with a
connecting interaxle driveshaft," Trost explains. "With
an electric vehicle, an OEM
can now use Dana's S175
high-efficiency drive axle
that supports 6x2. Instead of
having a rear axle that is a
non-powered tag axle, Dana's
new eS6200r e-Axle can be
installed to provide the
efficiency of a 6x2 with 6x4
tractive effort. This e-Axle fits
into existing suspensions in
the marketplace."
