Meritor announced Aug. 4 Hino will be evaluating and testing its ePowertrain for its development path to zero emissions vehicles (ZEV).

Meritor has been a long-standing key supplier for Hino Motors Manufacturing North America for dressed axles on its medium-duty truck models. With this new collaboration, both companies look to expand advanced, electrified drive systems to further zero-emissions development.

Examples of Meritor's electrified solutions include its all-electric, fully integrated, ePowertrain for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles. It is designed to provide efficiency, performance, weight savings, and superior space utilization.

Key advantages of Meritor's ePowertrain over remote mount systems include:

  • Tighter turning radius due to a shorter wheelbase
  • Increased room between frame rails for additional battery capacity, which extends the range of the vehicle
  • Lighter weight (up to 800 pounds)
