TraXon transmission system
, ZF is targeting heavy commercial vehicles weighing up to 40 tons and buses. In combination with a high-performance hybrid module, this concept enables electrically supported and even all-electric driving. The combustion engine can be switched off in city centers or in halls, resulting in local zero emissions and significantly reduced noise emissions. The interaction of the combustion engine and the electric motor increases the vehicle's efficiency.
With an eye to city buses, ZF has brought out the
electric portal axle, incorporating two wheel-hub motors, each capable of outputting 125 kilowatts. This electric portal axle offers a high degree of freedom in the choice of energy supply: purely electric drive with energy from battery, fuel cell or trolley line is possible, as is, of course, the combination with a combustion engine.
ZF covers the entire spectrum of drive technology with its broad, modular-structured program of hybrid systems for vehicles, from passenger cars to heavy trucks, ensuring that drivers are gifted with clean and efficient mobility.
