ZF CETRAX ALL-ELECTRIC CENTRAL DRIVE FOR CITY BUSES
ZF Friedrichshafen AG focuses on all-electric drive solutions for urban vehicles and hybrid technologies for use in long-distance transport applications. The latest development is the purely electric central drive CeTrax, which can be used in delivery trucks and different bus applications in the inner city.
The central drive is ideal for vehicles with a driveline configuration similar to that currently used in conventional vehicles, thus making it easy to integrate into existing vehicle concepts. The fact that CeTrax can be combined with single rear drive axles and conventional low-floor axles means it can be installed in low-entry buses and all kinds of low-floor buses. Compared to solutions from competitors, ZF's central drive provides clear weight advantages, high performance and excellent efficiency. This is down to the systematic consideration of the entire driveline and an innovative e-motor layout.
