TransPower’s ElecTruck™ components are designed to work together seamlessly in an integrated battery-electric drive system, enabling the largest vehicles to operate as battery-electric vehicles (BEVs), using no fuel and producing zero emissions. While the integrated ElecTruck™ battery-electric drive system delivers complete freedom from reliance on fossil fuels, it also provides a foundation for alternative drive system variants that can use small amounts of clean fuels such as natural gas or hydrogen fuel cells for range extension.

Product Description

The ElecTruck™ battery-electric drive system uses the energy stored in large packs of lithium-ion batteries to meet the propulsion and other power requirements of a wide range of vehicles, ranging from 20,000 lb. delivery trucks and school buses to the largest trucks and tractors capable of hauling loads of 80,000 lb. or more.

A variety of innovative advanced technologies are employed to use the battery energy efficiently while achieving superior vehicle performance.  These include an automated manual transmission and high-power onboard inverter-charger unit, as well as a sophisticated vehicle control architecture that integrates advanced motor control, battery management, and efficient electrically-driven accessory functions.


The principal benefits of the ElecTruck™ battery-electric drive system are

  • Higher vehicle performance, and
  • Greater reliability than previously-developed battery-electric propulsion systems.

This makes the ElecTruck™ system the first zero-emission propulsion system to work effectively in large vehicles weighing more than 40,000 lb., including the heaviest Class 8 trucks and tractors that haul loads of 80,000 lb. or more. These very heavy vehicles usually rely on diesel fuel and are among the least fuel-efficient and most polluting vehicles, so the ElecTruck™ system can provide significant economic benefits to vehicle operators as well as important reductions in emissions of toxic pollutants and greenhouse gases.

    Dear Sales team,

    I am writing to inquire about your terms for granting our Institution a commercial credit of “Net30 days”, and I wish to place a bulk order for the supply of the below product. Please provide us with the proforma invoice and the quoting of your best price for the below mentioned product:

    12V 200AH @ 20HR Sealed AGM Battery ——- Qty: 100 pcs
    Nominal Voltage (V) 12V
    Max. Discharge Current: 2000A (5s)
    Weight 161 lbs.(73kg)
    Length 21.03 (534 mm)
    Width 11.00 (279 mm)
    Height 10.82 (275 mm)

    Your quotation must be valid for at least 30 days and our Institutional payment terms are Net30 days from the date of your invoice with our official institutional purchase order. Since there is probably specific information that you require before establishing a credit account with us, perhaps it will make more sense for you to send us the paper works to be filled out.

    I look forward to hearing from you, and hope to establishing a curdle relationship with your company.

    Yours Truly,
