Reyco Granning Electric Vehicle Solutions’ 240AR-EV drive axle air suspension was designed specifically for the burgeoning commercial electric vehicle market.
The suspension was designed to package with e-axles which tend to require more space than traditional axles.
Low profile frame brackets leave room for body mounts or 5th wheel angles. The curved spring beam eliminates the traditional lower air spring mount to increase ground clearance, reduce weight, and accommodate a range of frame widths.
Packaging efficiencies were a focus in order to accommodate for a larger e-axle space-claim. The 240AR-EV has a GAWR range of 17,000 pounds to 23,000 pounds and is suitable for single or tandem drive axle arrangements. Ride heights range from 8.5 inches to 10 inches. It is suited for on-highway truck, tractor, motorhome, or bus applications.
“This is the latest product to come out of the Electric Vehicle Solutions business unit," said Drake Sarault, vice president of sales. "It further cements our commitment to the future of heavy vehicle propulsion.”
