ZF, Visedo, Toray, UQM Technologies.

Central drive for e-buses by ZF: The German supplier has pulled off what it calls a plug and drive solution for all-electric buses in time for the Busworld. The CeTrax concept, a central drive unit, had been presented by 2016 but has now been implemented in a real world application and can be “retrofitted into existing vehicle platforms without any larger modifications to the chassis, axles, statics or differentials,” according to Dr. Jochen Witzig, who was responsible for the development. Maximum output of the CeTrax is at 300 kW which gives it a climbing ability of 25 percent.
