DEBUT AT BUSWORLD: CUMMINS NEXT GENERATION BATTERY ELECTRIC SYSTEM
Hall 8, Booth 802B
Cummins Inc. will unveil its Next Generation Battery Electric System, including its new low-profile battery, for the first time at Busworld Europe 2019, showcasing the company’s advances in powertrain technology for the European bus market.
At the show, Cummins will highlight the new low-profile battery – designed for the European market, which measures under 140mm in height, in the 8.9-metre-long bus. Cummins says this product will enable OEMs to meet European low floor requirements while maintaining a low centre of gravity and maximising utilisation of unoccupied space. To be offered as part of a broader modular platform, the new low-profile battery uses the latest cell technology to deliver high energy density and packaging efficiency.
The low-profile battery will be displayed as part of a complete Battery Electric System (BES), including products from Cummins’ existing product portfolio such as the high energy BP74E batteries mounted in the roof and the Cummins System Controller. Other components including the new Cummins Integrated e-Drive—a single unit traction system which combines motor, transmission and inverter into a single lightweight system—and the BP39E battery, which brings the latest Cummins battery technology to a smaller footprint, are part of Cummins future product roadmap.
