HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. – Odyne Corp., a developer of plug-in hybrid-electric vehicle (PHEV) technology for trucks and buses, now has a strategic supplier agreement with Bosch Rexroth Corp. to provide preferred pricing and a steady supply of electric motors and drives for its plug-in hybrid-electric vehicle applications, as Odyne begins to ramp up production in 2007.Bosch Rexroth, a division of Bosch Group., will provide electric motors to be used in Odyne’s proprietary powertrain system for medium- and heavy-duty trucks and buses. The motors are used for multiple functions, including generators to produce the electricity that charges the battery packs; traction motors to transfer power from the battery packs to the vehicle; and during regenerative braking, to transfer the kinetic energy from the vehicle to the battery packs. Bosch Rexroth and Odyne will work together to ensure that future Bosch products will be optimized for plug-in hybrid applications.
