Reyco Granning announces new suspension development for electric vehicles
MT. VERNON, Mo. — Reyco Granning Electric Vehicle Solutions (RGevs) announced the availability of a new drive axle air suspension for the commercial electric vehicle market. It is a new member of the WorkMasterTM product family and variant of the successful Model 240AR. This new 240AR-EV was developed specifically to package with e-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 lb. (7.7 t) to 23,000 lb. (10.4 t) and is suitable for single or tandem drive axle arrangements. Ride heights range from 8.5 in. (216 mm) to 10 in. (254 mm). It is ideally 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. It further cements our commitment to the future of heavy vehicle propulsion,” said Drake Sarault, Vice President of Sales.
The 240AR-EV will be on display in cooperation with Allison Transmission at the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo in Long Beach, Calif. April 23-26, 2019. Please take a look at booth #1447 and see the product mounted to the new AXE e-axle by Allison Transmission.
