(UPDATED March 25, 2013, with VIDEO) March 19, 2013 – At the Work Truck Show 2013, Allison Transmission unveiled its H3000 hybrid-propulsion system for medium- and heavy-duty trucks. The fully-automatic parallel hybrid-propulsion system is based on the Allison 3000 Series transmission, which is matched with hybrid system components, including a motor-generator, power electronics and lithium-ion cell battery packs. Scalable to each application, the modular battery packs enable an optimal amount of energy capacity to be tailored to a specific vehicle or duty cycle, says Allison, allowing for “greater flexibility and performance”. The H3000 captures otherwise-wasted energy during vehicle braking, and uses it to assist in vehicle propulsion and powering of auxiliary equipment. (Photos A. Capkun)
