Cummins to develop electric powertrains

Cummins signed an agreement with truck and engine manufacturer Kamaz to develop a line of battery-powered vehicles. Cummins said in a statement that it will continue to expand its powertrain portfolio by developing electric power systems (fully electric and hybrid) for commercial applications.

“Cummins has made strategic moves to bolster our electrified power business,” said Tom Linebarger, Cummins chairman and CEO, in the statement. “Kamaz brings a proven electrified portfolio, which will broaden the range and increase the reliability of our electrified power systems.”

Cummins intends to develop high-voltage electric powertrain prototypes with applications for city buses and medium range delivery trucks.

The two companies have had a joint venture since 2006 for producing Cummins ISB series engines. They have produced ISL series engines since 2017.
