Efficient Drivetrains, Inc. is now offering the EDI PowerDrive 6000ev, designed for goods movement, logistics, port, and utility vehicle applications. The EDI PowerDrive electrification kit offers a modular design for simple integration into existing chassis designs and enables rapid solution introduction. The extensibility of EDI’s system is an ideal vehicle electrification platform, aligned to industry requirements, and will enable OEMs to meet idle free, zero emissions requirements for city and highway driving, with no impact to vehicle performance.

The EDI PowerDrive Electrification kits are ideal for Class-6 step vans, box and work trucks, utility vehicles, and passenger shuttles, and include a high-efficiency drivetrain (EDI PowerDrive), vehicle control and telematics software (EDI PowerSuite), and the training and support infrastructure to enable fast time to market.

OEMs are able further customize their vehicle solutions with EDI’s Electric Power Export (Power2E) option — the capability to export a range of power directly from the vehicle for use in disaster recovery, jobsite maintenance, tool operation, and other applications. To accelerate market introductions, EDI is also available to install the powertrain systems and perform vehicle integration as a service for OEMs as they bring solutions to market.

The EDI PowerDrive system also includes sophisticated control algorithms and embedded diagnostics for remote maintenance and monitoring. The system is less complex, more efficient, and adaptable to a wide range of use cases and duty cycles. The unique, inline form factor allows the drivetrain to integrate seamlessly into most medium-duty vehicle designs. The drivetrain includes a base of 100+ mile all-electric driving, with the ability for OEMs to extend range as required by their customers.
