Allison to present new fully electric axle in UK-built fire engine

At an upcoming trade show in Hannover, Allison Transmission and Emergency One will exhibit the first fire engine, and the first truck integration in Europe, featuring the new eGen Power electric axle.

Emergency One, a British manufacturer of fire and rescue vehicles, has integrated the eGen Power 100D into its new E1 EV0 platform on a MAN TGM chassis and is presenting the vehicle for the first time at Interschutz in cooperation with Allison. It is the first time a truck propelled by the eGen Power e-Axle has been shown in Europe.

The eGen Power is a bolt-in electric propulsion solution compatible with the existing vehicle frames. It features two fully integrated electric motors, a two-speed gearbox, oil cooler and pumps.

The twin-engine 100D version has a continuous output of 454 kilowatts and a peak output power of 652 kilowatts. The eGen Power 100D axle is one of the most powerful electric axle systems on the market. Its design prioritises starting and climbing capabilities, as well as high speed and efficiency.

This allows fire and rescue vehicles to offer unsurpassed performance and reliability, strong acceleration and excellent manoeuvrability.

Allison also offers the eGen Power 130D, a variant of the 100D, specifically designed for the European and Asia Pacific markets, where many commercial vehicles require a heavier 13 tonne gross axle weight rating.
