Reyco Granning Electric Vehicle Solutions (RGevs) announced the availability of a new WorkMaster drive axle air suspension for the commercial electric vehicle market. The new variant of the 240AR-EV suspension was developed specifically to package with e-axles.
According to a press release, low profile frame brackets leave room for body mounts or fifth-wheel angles. The curved spring beam eliminates the traditional lower air spring mount to increase ground clearance, reduce weight, and accommodate a range of frame widths.
Packaging efficiencies were a focus in order to accommodate for a larger e-axle space-claim. The 240AR-EV has a GAWR range of 17,000 to 23,000 pounds and is suitable for single or tandem drive axle arrangements. Ride heights range from 8 1/2 inches to 10 inches. It is ideally suited for on-highway truck, tractor, motorhome or bus applications.
“This is the latest product to come out of the Electric Vehicle Solutions business unit. It further cements our commitment to the future of heavy vehicle propulsion,” said Drake Sarault, vice president of sales.
The 240AR-EV will be on display in cooperation with Allison Transmission at the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo in Long Beach, Calif., April 23-26 in Booth No. 1447.
