At ConExpo, Dana Incorporated announced several initiatives – including new drivetrain offerings for electrified vehicles – that strengthen the company’s growing commitment to the North American construction and off-highway markets.

Among these initiatives, Dana is:

  • Debuting the Spicer Electrified eSP502 e-Transmission for the North American construction market. This flexible platform is designed to support the electrification of mid-sized wheel loaders, rough terrain cranes, and other off-highway vehicles, with availability now expanded to empty container handlers and reach stackers in the material-handling market. Leveraging Dana’s field-proven powershift technology, the eSP502 e-Transmission offers a dual-motor, two-speed design that is built on a flexible platform to enable optimized performance at maximum efficiency in a compact package. The modular approach to the transmission design allows for a single motor solution, as well as an optional power take-off, depending on the specific vehicle requirements.
  • At ConExpo, Dana is introducing a new modular Spicer drivetrain solution for telehandlers with 12k lifting capacities that enables original-equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to seamlessly transition from conventional vehicle designs to next-generation zero-emissions powertrains.
  • Increasing process capabilities and equipment capacity at its Lafayette, Ind., USA, facility, which manufactures Spicer Torque-Hub track drives to meet the rising demand of compact track loaders (CTLs) and other small- to mid-sized construction vehicles in North America.
