Gearbox Wrightspeed GTD
The familiar roar of a diesel engine accelerating from a stop becomes only a memory with a Wrightspeed powertrain. The GTD™ (Geared Traction Drive) delivers power to the wheels exclusively through a whisper-quiet electric motor – combustion power never drives the wheels.
Our sophisticated four-speed clutchless gearbox uses software controls in place of heavy and complex traditional transmission components, saving on weight while delivering an exceptional range of power and speed. The gearbox magnifies the already high torque of the electric motors for brisk starts, even on hills when fully loaded, and also allows efficient cruising speed for highway segments. Unlike some EV powertrains, the GTD™ delivers equal or greater power to the wheels as the diesel piston-engine systems it displaces.
