Hybrid drives for commercial vehicles – Into the Future Emission-Free

Emission-free drive solutions

Baumüller has also been active in the field of electromobility for many years and supplies electric motors and complete drive systems for ships, wheel loaders and other commercial vehicles. Always with the goal of reducing emissions.

"Electromobility has been a resounding success in commercial vehicles and mobile utility machines". This self-confident statement from Andreas Baumüller, Managing Partner of the Baumüller Group, appeared in the Handelsblatt business newspaper in July 2019. The projects in this area are wide-ranging: A hybrid ferry on the Weser river is powered with Baumüller technology, along with an electric ferry in Taiwan and the first farm loader with a lithium-ion battery.

The great advantage of solutions with Baumüller technology is that decades of expertise in electrical drive technology can be used for industry. Although solutions in e-mobility differ significantly from those in industrial applications, Baumüller's development and manufacturing expertise can be used optimally here.

Agricultural machines

Application examples: tractors, semi-trailers, plowing machines, farm loaders and wheel loaders, etc.

The all-electric and hybrid drive solutions for the agricultural sector enable low-noise and low-emission operation. The high starting torque increases driving comfort for the user. By replacing hydraulic units, the machines can also be used in sensitive environmental areas. Agricultural machines require high output and a broad speed range to increase starting torque, depending on version.

Construction vehicles

Construction vehicles

Application examples: road rollers, milling machines, loaders, excavators, farm and wheel loaders, etc.

Construction machines are used in handling and processing building materials, transporting supplies and performing construction tasks. Both all-electric and hybrid drive concepts are used. The drives must either be high-output, dynamic or economical, depending on application. The machines must also be fully practical, despite the e-drive.

Application examples: transporters, minibuses, trucks, city buses.

Because of the fixed routes, predictable operating periods and the frequent braking, city buses and trucks are perfectly suited for the use of electric or hybrid drive systems. The use of an electric drive reduces the environmental impact and increases efficiency. The brake energy recuperation increases battery life, thus ensuring s a longer driving range. A high torque over the full speed range increases efficiency and improves driving comfort.

Municipal and special-purpose vehicles

Municipal and special-purpose vehicles

Application examples: Cleaning machines, mowers, multi-purpose vehicles, vans, etc.

The use of electric motors for municipal and special-purpose vehicles enables low particulate matter emissions, minimal noise and minimal operating costs. Brake energy recuperation allows for maximization of running time. The broad speed range and the high starting torque increase driving comfort.
