Dana to develop e-Powertrain for OX flat-pack UV

Dana has announced that its operation in Birmingham, United Kingdom, has been awarded a $2.7 million (Rs 21 crore) grant to develop an e-Powertrain for OX Delivers — the world's first flat-pack utility vehicle destined for emerging markets in Africa.

The OX Delivers truck has been engineered to tackle the toughest terrain and will be shipped as a flat pack and assembled in the destination country.  The truck is powered by Dana's Spicer Electrified eS4500i e-Drive Unit, which combines an electric motor, inverter, gearbox, and software in a complete e-propulsion system.

The grant supports Dana's work industrializing electrified powertrain technologies and was awarded by the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) — a non-profit organization that facilitates U.K. government funding to research and development projects supporting the delivery of net-zero emission vehicles.

"Dana has a guiding vision toward a zero-emissions future that incorporates sustainable social impact," said Huw Davies, senior managing director of Dana Light Vehicle Drive Systems in Europe. "The APC's $2.7 million grant advances Dana's development of electrified technology, driving prosperous trade in rural emerging markets. We're proud to partner with OX Delivers and grateful for the APC's support."
