Allison Electric Drives has released it’s newest product for the transit bus market. The “EP-50 System” was designed specifically for articulated and suburban coaches. This system is referred to as “Split Parallel Hybrid Technology”, and is a design patented by Allison. It uses power from Allison’s advanced energy storage system that contains or uses no “Lead Acid Batteries”. The “EP-50 system combines the Allison automatic transmission with an integrated electric drive unit.

Still a good read. The drive has been out now for about 5 years and does a good job. Really good article about Detroit and Allison's new hybrid power plant. Neat stuff.
