Agility Fuel Solutions has introduced a line of high-performance battery packs and complete electric vehicle drivetrain integrations designed specifically for medium-and heavy-duty trucks.
The lightweight, liquid-cooled lithium ion (NMC) battery packs are configurable in 110 kWh increments, currently up to 440 kWh for Class 8 trucks. They are the lightest battery packs for commercial vehicles, exceeding 150 watt-hours per kilogram, the company says.
The patent-pending battery pack design wraps around and underneath the truck’s frame rail space to make the most efficient possible use of space on the truck, engineered with integrated mounting brackets and steps. Packs are designed with integrated vibration isolation and impact protection, as well as environmental enclosures exceeding IP67 and IP6k9k.
Agility is also providing OEMs with complete integrated drivetrains, including third-parties’ e-axle technologies, Agility battery packs and power electronics, and controls. As part of its drivetrain package, Agility is including a patent-pending high-voltage electric front-end accessories drive (eFEAD) module, bringing together all components required to operate the cab, air brakes and complete vehicle thermal management into a single convenient package.
Agility Fuel Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hexagon Composites ASA, says it is currently delivering its battery packs to multiple truck OEM electric vehicle programs.
