Reyco Granning Electric Vehicle Solutions (RGevs) recently added a new drive axle air suspension for the commercial electric vehicle market.
The air suspension is a new member of the WorkMaster product family, and a variant of the successful Model 240AR. The new 240AR-EV was developed specifically to package with e-axles, Reyco Granning said.
“This is the latest product to come out of the Electric Vehicle Solutions business unit,” said Drake Sarault, vice president of sales for Reyco. “It further cements our commitment to the future of heavy vehicle propulsion.”
Low-profile frame brackets leave room for body mounts or fifth wheel angles, the company said. 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 gross axle weight rating (GAWR) range of 17,000 pounds (8.5 US tons) to 23,000 pounds (11.5 tons), and is suitable for single or tandem drive axle arrangements. Ride heights range from 8.5 inches to 10 inches. It is well-suited for on-highway truck, tractor, motorhome or bus applications, Reyco said.
