Eaton four-speed electric transmission receives PACEpilot award

Eaton’s heavy-duty four-speed electrified vehicle transmission was named a 2024 Automotive News PACEpilot Innovation to Watch at an awards ceremony on April 29.

Eaton said its EV transmission provides superior performance on grades and acceleration for electric commercial vehicles with flexible gear ratios. The four-speed transmission for heavy-duty applications is designed to improve system efficiency, enabling longer vehicle range and battery life, Eaton said.

The fourth annual PACEpilot program was presented by Automotive News. The recognition acknowledges post-pilot, pre-commercial innovations in the automotive and future mobility space.

“We are honored to be chosen by the PACEpilot judges to receive this prestigious award,” said Scott Adams, senior vice president of global products for Eaton’s Mobility Group. “Our heavy-duty EV transmission is an innovation that is receiving interest from manufacturers around the world who would like to improve the performance of their electrified commercial vehicles.”
