Allison Transmission was selected by Oshkosh Corporation as its electric axle supplier for a fully integrated, zero-emission electric refuse collection vehicle in North America. The Allison eGen Power 100S has been integrated into the McNeilus Volterra ZSL electric refuse vehicle, specifically designed for the waste management industry to minimize environmental impact and reduce noise in communities around the world, according to Allison Transmission.

Oshkosh said it recognized the eGen Power 100S architecture efficiency advantage in heavy stop-start refuse applications would extend the eRCV’s range. Each vehicle will be built using two eGen Power 100S e-Axles in tandem configuration while delivering cleaner air and quieter operation in communities where deployed. A differential-lock will be utilized for optimized traction.
