Odyne Systems’s zero-emissions export power systems is now available directly through Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp (FCCC) dealers for use on the FCCC MT50e all-electric commercial chassis.  The export power system will be installed by Odyne or a Freightliner dealer before the final body installation to minimize end-customer delivery time.

Electric Vehicle APU Available on MT50e

The Odyne evAPU (electric vehicle auxiliary power unit) will eliminate the need for fossil fuel-powered generators on the MT50e chassis used in work truck applications.

Thousands of work vehicles use generators to provide electrical power for tools and equipment at job sites and Odyne said this creates unnecessary harmful emissions and noise pollution.

The Odyne evAPU system has a large 35 kWh grid-recharged battery system and export power inverters that provide 6 to 12 kW of AC 120V or 240V electrical power.

IRS Qualified Manufacturer Designation

In 2023 the Internal Revenue Service designated Odyne as a qualified manufacturer, which enables purchases of trucks with Odyne plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) systems to claim a Qualified Commercial Clean Vehicle Credit of up to $40,000.

Odyne Systems Celebrating 15th Anniversary

Earlier this year, Odyne began observing its 15th anniversary. Since 2009, the company has delivered electrification systems to more than 80 fleets, built a nationwide service network, and developed an exclusive relationship with Allison Transmission.

Odyne has been granted more than 60 proprietary patents for plug-in electric system technology for large truck applications and is on track to deliver over 500 PHEV and electric power take-off (ePTO) systems by the end of 2024.
