Indiana-based heavy-duty engine specialist Cummins unveiled its lithium-ion battery portfolio at the recent Battery Show Europe in Hannover, Germany, including battery packs and modules that can be integrated with the company’s new electric and hybrid powertrain portfolio.
Cummins’s product range includes the BM44E (44 kWh) and BM20E (20 kWh) low-voltage modules, designed to power material handling applications; and the BP74E (74 kWh) and BP35E (35 kWh) high-voltage battery packs, designed for long-range buses and trucks. These Cummins-designed and built Li-ion batteries use a proprietary control technology. The modular design allows the system to be scaled to fit the duty cycle of each application.
“With a 100-year track record of powering our customers’ success, Cummins is leading the way with our cutting-edge battery line up that’s part of a diverse power portfolio,” said Andrew Penca, General Manager, Battery Systems. “Cummins is committed to investing $500 million in electrification over three years. These investments include innovation of fully electric and hybrid power solutions that will serve our markets as they adopt electrification.”
