Truck & Off-Highway Engineering - June 2022 - 30

ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT
" This truck is solid "
Detroit ePowertrain developed the powertrain
in-house. It then was tested both
by DTNA engineers as well as with customers,
a partnership with end users that
was new for the company, according to
Andreas Juretzka, senior product development
lead for eMobility at DTNA.
Juretzka said his team put the eCascadia
through the same kind of durability tests
that it employs for diesel-powered trucks,
including component shakeout and extreme-ambient
winter and summer tests.
DTNA put more than 1.5 million miles
(2.4 million km) of testing on the eCascadia
in real U.S. operations. " Lately, we
also did our crash testing, and I can tell
you, this truck is solid, " he said.
Running a battery of tests is expected
for any new vehicle model, of
DC fast-charging is available to
recharge the eCascadia's battery to
80% capacity in around 90 minutes.
course, but that doesn't mean the testing
didn't provide its own set of insights
into how drivers might experience
the truck differently than dieselpowered
models. " What really surprised
me was how quiet the system is,
and how stable the system is, " Juretzka
said. " For everybody who [has used]
motor engine brake, and who knows
how loud it is, this is a game changer. "
DTNA made sure to include safety
A prediction tool called eRange
gives drivers a constantly updated
estimate on remaining range.
The electric truck is configured as a 116inch
day cab ideal for last-mile delivery
companies as well as drayage and
warehouse operations.
and convenience features in the eCascadia
to match or improve upon technologies
to which operators might be
accustomed from their diesel-engine
vehicles. A prediction tool called
eRange gives drivers a constantly updated
estimate on remaining range; the
eRange software takes all sorts of details
into account, including vehicle parameters,
the load the truck might be
carrying, weather, traffic and elevations.
To optimize the charging of a fleet of
eCascadia trucks, DTNA will offer a new
Charger Management System. The CMS
will allow for staggered charging of
multiple vehicles as well as setting timers
to have the trucks charge at offpeak-demand
hours. Partial charging
also will be part of the CMS, which will
be released in the fourth quarter of
2022. DTNA said more features will be
added to the CMS in 2023.
