At ACT Expo, Accelera unveiled the latest generation of its fuel cell technology which will be part of the new FCE300 and FCE150 fuel cell engines. Accelera claims that both offer increased power density for larger systems, improved system efficiency and advanced durability. The modular architecture enables seamless configurations for a multitude of applications and layouts, while streamlining integration processes for on- and off-highway mobile and stationary applications.

Accelera also introduced the next-gen 14Xe its newest and most versatile eAxle. It is available with a 3-speed twin-countershaft or a 2-speed planetary transmission and is designed to accommodate increased torque, power and battery voltage requirements. The new 14Xe also minimizes the need for wheel-end reductions, making it a more flexible option for customers, says the company.

Lastly, Accelera unveiled the BP104E, it’s new battery platform. This next-gen lithium iron phosphate (LFP) platform is highly modular and can adapt easily to different customer needs, providing superior life performance and fast charging capabilities. The BP104E boasts a rated energy capacity of 104 kWh and a max voltage range of 830V.

Accelera says it is “engineered to redefine energy storage standards along with unparalleled performance, reliability and safety to meet the evolving demands of the transportation sector”.

The next-gen LFP chemistry composition and cell-to-pack architecture also make it more energy dense and cost competitive, says the company. Volume production is planned for 2027. 

Accelera’s 300-kW fuel cell engine is on display at ACT Expo in a Navistar RH International Class 8 heavy-duty truck equipped with two rail-mounted FCE150 engines and Accelera’s newest eAxle.

“Accelera is leading the charge toward a more sustainable future, and I’m excited to celebrate the launch of our new zero-emissions fuel cell, eAxle and battery products,” said Amy Davis, president of Accelera. “Through constant innovation, real-world testing in the field and collaboration with customers and partners to tailor solutions, we continue to improve our next-generation technologies, helping accelerate adoption and the shift to zero.”
