Dana, Motiv electric Ford F-550 turning heads at ACT Expo

An all-electric Ford F-550 built by Dana and Motiv is attracting plenty of attention this week at the Advanced Clean Transportation Expo in Long Beach, Calif.

“We’ve had a lot of people coming by, constantly taking pictures,” explained Dana applications engineer Adam Erickson.

Dana’s new TM4 e-Axle, which was unveiled Wednesday, turns the dual wheels at the rear. A 112kWh battery system produced by BMW provides 350 volts which gets the truck up to a top speed of around 70 mph. Range is rated at 90 miles. Gradeability tops out at around 20 percent.
