Electric Trucks Are Coming! I Drive One Powered By Magna’s EtelligentForce Heavy Duty EV Powertrain

From Out of Spec Reviews.

Kyle is in Michigan’s UP at a cold weather proving ground where Magna is showing off their heavy duty EtelligentForce powertrain. The EtelligentForce powertrain system preserves strength and functionality of pickups and light commercial vehicles while providing fully electric power with a focus on cooling and power for sustained heavy load operation.

EtelligentForce features Magna’s eDrive technology at the front and its eBeam electrified beam axle at the rear. It is designed for high-payload vehicles, capable of towing up to 14,500 pounds – easily on par with its ICE counterparts in this truck segment. It can provide a total peak power of up to 430 kW – 250kW from the rear eBeam and 180kW from the front eDrive. As a bonus, this solution omits the need for architectural changes to the vehicle and is totally customizable for automakers to prioritize key performance attributes. Magna’s eBeam replaces traditional beam axles, accommodating existing suspension and brake systems, and avoiding the need for expensive redesign of existing truck platforms. These benefits help automakers simplify the transition toward electrification of these vehicle segments.

With fewer moving parts than a traditional ICE powertrain, the EtelligentForce requires less maintenance – a direct benefit to truck owners over the life of the vehicle.
