Low-profile underfloor battery demonstrates Cummins’ investment in new innovations in electrified power

Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) will exhibit its Next Generation Battery Electric System, including its new low-profile battery, at Busworld Turkey 2020, showcasing the company’s advances in powertrain technology for the European bus market.

The new low-profile battery, which is designed for the European market, but available for use in other markets, measures 150mm in height, in the 8.9-meter-long bus. This product will enable OEMs to meet European low floor requirements while maintaining a low center of gravity and maximizing utilization of unoccupied space. The new low-profile battery, which will be offered as part of a broader modular platform, uses the latest cell technology to deliver high energy density and packaging efficiency and represents a significant step forward for accessible, zero-emissions bus design.

"The Next Generation Battery Electric System is an exciting glimpse of Cummins' future product plans for electrified powertrains," said Julie Furber, Vice President of Electrified Power at Cummins. "As electric vehicles gather momentum in the public transport sector, designing batteries with faster charging and a longer range will be a breakthrough technological shift - and doing so in a form that meets regulatory requirements and at a competitive price is a vital step for the industry."

The low-profile battery will be displayed as part of a complete Battery Electric System (BES), including products from Cummins' existing product portfolio such as the high energy BP74E batteries mounted in the roof and the Cummins System Controller. Other components including the new Cummins Integrated e-Drive-a single unit traction system which combines motor, transmission and inverter into a single lightweight system-are part of Cummins' future product roadmap.

“Coupled with the extensive global support offered by the Cummins network,” continued Furber, “This system combines the reliability customers expect of Cummins with the efficiency of next generation electric drivetrains in a form factor designed for easy adoption.” 

The Next Generation Battery Electric System will be on display at the Cummins booth, March 5 through March 7.
