Allison’s initial efforts are directed toward the use of hybrids in pickup and delivery, shuttle, utility, and refuse applications.
The HVH410 is an advanced electric motor for medium-duty, heavy-duty and off-highway hybrid and electric vehicles based on Remy’s patented High Voltage Hairpin (HVH) technology that provides improved motor performance and cooling effectiveness.
Both companies will be manufacturing in the United States. The Remy HVH410 electric motors will be made in Remy’s Anderson, Indiana manufacturing facility. Allison will be manufacturing the Allison Hybrid Truck Drive system in Indianapolis, Indiana.
In December 2009, Allison Transmission entered into a long-term business agreement with Delphi Automotive Systems, LLC. Under the terms of the agreement, Delphi will supply Allison Transmission with key hybrid drive system components and energy storage systems. (Earlier post.)
