Allison Transmission to Present Latest Propulsion Solutions at Eurosatory 2024

Date: Issue 131 - June 2024

Allison Transmission, a leading designer and manufacturer of conventional and electrified vehicle propulsion solutions for tactical wheeled and tracked defence vehicles, and medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, will showcase eGen ForceTM, its electric hybrid propulsion system for armoured combat vehicles, at Eurosatory 2024 (June 17 - 21, Paris Villepinte, Hall 5A, Stand BC587). Allison will also present its 3040 MXTM cross-drive transmission as well as the 9-Speed and 4000 SeriesTM fully automatic transmissions for defense ground vehicles.

eGen Force is the newest product in Allison’s extensive armoured vehicle portfolio, meeting requirements across a wide spectrum of applications, including the Infantry Fighting Vehicle and future Main Battle Tank markets. eGen Force extends beyond the capabilities of a traditional transmission by functioning as a power distribution system with an electric motor and inverter. This innovative technology provides power for the vehicle and allows for parallel hybrid operation. This enables engine-off mobility, which reduces the risk of enemy detection, including acoustic and thermal detection, key to soldier survivability.
