Cummins To Make Electric Powertrains For Buses Soon

By Rajkamal

American engine manufacturer Cummins will start production of electric powertrains for city buses around the world, starting 2019. The development was confirmed by company executives to Reuters.

The company says more industrial and commercial uses will soon follow in the years to come, as battery range for electric vehicles increases over the years.

Earlier, Eaton, a power management company and Cummins agreed to form a joint venture for automated gearboxes for heavy and medium duty commercial vehicles. Under the agreement terms, Eaton will receive $60 million in cash from Cummins for 50 percent interest in the joint venture.

Tom Linebarger, the Chief Executive Officer of Cummins, said, "Our growth strategy includes expanding our product offerings and extending our global footprint by becoming the world's leading powertrain supplier."
