VP also has extensive intellectual property in BMS software for high voltage lithium-ion battery systems and has proven this in real-world operation through a library of proprietary algorithms. It has also developed advanced thermal management systems, ranging from immersive cell cooling through to direct contact evaporativeand isothermal structural elements as well as forced air cooling.
Vantage Power’s entrepreneurial spirit and technological advancements complement our strategic priorities to meet and exceed our customers’ demands,” said David S. Graziosi, President and CEO of Allison Transmission. “Through this and other growth initiatives, we will continue to build upon our conventional and electric hybrid products today while differentiating ourselves in the electrification and fuel cell markets.”
Allison Transmission has a more than 103-year history of leading technological advancements: from James Allison owning the winning racecar of the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race in 1915 to building every transmission that is in the United States Army’s Abrams Battle Tank. Allison is moving into electric systems with new electric powertrain solutions and expanding system and integration level capabilities in alternative propulsion. Both of these acquisitions align with Allison’s position in propulsion technology, and will complement its existing capabilities to advance electrification adoption in commercial vehicles.
