Cummins to Feature Electrified Power for Transit Bus for First Time at APTA

Cummins Broadens Power Portfolio with Battery Electric and Range Extended Electric Systems to Offer the Most Energy-Diverse Solutions in the Industry

Cummins will reveal electrified power technology for transit bus applications at the APTA public transportation show opening in Atlanta on October 9.

Cummins will display a new powertrain, configurable for either a full battery electric vehicle (BEV) or a range extended electric vehicle (REEV) incorporating a compact engine-generator. Cummins electrified power systems are ideally suited for integration into transit, shuttle and commuter buses enabling direct drive-by-wire continuous acceleration. With the bus operating in battery-only mode, the system achieves zero emissions at the point of use.

Enhanced energy storage for both the BEV and REEV systems is achieved using Cummins’ high-density battery enclosure, which are compact and modular allowing for both on-roof and chassis integration. Cummins’ unique design fits into existing bus designs.

Cummins’ proprietary control technology enables the zero-emissions bus range to be extended by optimally managing subsystems, allowing the charge of the battery to be extended. Operational flexibility is also improved with fast recharge capability using a plug-in connection, as well as options for en-route charging when a pantograph or charge plate infrastructure is available.
